What Constitutes a Medication Error?

Many issues might constitute a medication error, all of which could result in negative consequences for the patient. Medication errors can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Giving you too high or low of a dosage
  • Giving you the incorrect medication
  • Providing insufficient medicines for the treatment period
  • Switching medication with another patient
  • Having mismatched labels 
  • Giving you expired medication
  • Explaining incorrect timing recommendations
  • Not monitoring your dose in case of an error

Medication errors do not only have a potential impact on a patient’s physical health, as there could also be significant negative impacts on mental health and general trust in medical providers. A change in trust toward medical providers could quickly result in patients utilizing non-FDA or scientifically backed resources, putting them at further risk.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Medication Errors in Healthcare?

Who can be held liable for a medication error will depend on when and where someone made a mistake. Any medical provider, including the following, might be responsible for issues with your medication:

  • Pharmacists
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Hospitals
  • Other healthcare providers

If you need assistance determining who is responsible for these mistakes, work with an attorney from Hodges & Foty, LLP. Our team can help you determine who is responsible, help you hold them accountable for their actions, and aid you in obtaining the compensation you deserve.
