Raleigh Pharmacy Errors
Today, the sheer volume of prescriptions being dispensed is mind- boggling. With advances in medical technology there is practically a pill that can address virtually any ailment. Unfortunately, most pharmacists are extremely busy and the high volume of prescription medications being filled on a daily basis leave room for negligent and reckless mistakes. When it comes to dangerous drug interactions and overdosing, these mistakes can cost patients their lives.
Unfortunately, pharmacy dispensing errors can occur due to a variety of distractions, staff shortages and inadequate technician assistance. However, just because a pharmacist is busy, doesn't make dispensing errors acceptable by any means, especially when the patient pays with their health.
Serious Side Effects
A pharmacist's job is to not only dispense medications, but to counsel and teach patients about the medications as well. At times, pharmacists are negligent and they do make dangerous mistakes. Pharmacist negligence can occur in more than one way; for example, they can provide the incorrect medication dosage (which can result in an overdose), they can give you the wrong medication, or they can put the wrong dosage directions on the prescription container. All of which, can cause serious to potentially life-threatening side effects for the patient. If you suspect that you have been a victim of pharmacy malpractice, you should not hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
