Is Your Texas Pharmacy Guilty of Malpractice?

After you received the wrong prescription from your pharmacy, you were understandably upset. The medication caused you to become sick to your stomach, vomiting, diarrhea-maybe you even had to be hospitalized.
The sad fact is: you're not alone.

Get the facts on Texas pharmacy malpractice with our FREE book: How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.

Many people are hospitalized each year because of a wrong prescription or medication dosage error. What they might not know is that if a Houston pharmacist made a mistake like the ones below, he may be guilty of malpractice:
  • Dispensing. The most common errors are dispensing errors-an incorrect amount of a prescription given or an incorrect dosage from the one intended for the patient. In some cases, it is the correct amount of the correct medication, but given to the wrong patient.
  • Inattentive supervision of staff. Due to the nationwide shortage of pharmacists, a pharmacy may only employ one pharmacist and four to ten technicians. Technicians must be supervised by a pharmacist at all times on all shifts. If your pharmacy allowed its techs to function independently, they could be liable for a malpractice suit.
  • Negligence. This often happens when pharmacists or techs make personal choices that result in harmful mistakes, such as not checking a patient's history for possible drug interactions or allergic reactions, failure to counsel a patient on a medication or otherwise putting their own needs ahead of their patients'.
  • Breach of proper care. Pharmacists have a duty to protect and educate all patients that come to their pharmacy. If your pharmacist gave you incorrect medical advice about your prescription or shrugged off your complaint, he may be guilty of malpractice.
As experienced Texas pharmacist malpractice attorneys, we realize that most pharmacy errors are unintentional. However, since your pharmacist is entrusted with responsibility for your health, he must provide an excellent standard of care-and he must also be held accountable for any mistakes that cause his patients harm.
