Knowledgeable Attorneys Fighting Prescription Drug Overdoses in Arizona

Prescription errors, including medication overdoses, happen in many ways. A patient may be given the wrong medication or the wrong dose by a hospital or pharmacy, for example, when a nurse fails to note a change in a patient’s prescription. A nurse might fail to properly check the ID of a patient and give him or her medication intended for someone else. A pharmacist may misread a doctor’s handwriting and may dispense something different from what was ordered. Similarly, a nurse may misinterpret what the doctor has ordered or may make a mistake when writing down an order given by a doctor. A doctor might even order a prescription for medication to which the patient is allergic.

Unfortunately, in spite of efforts to prevent medication errors, they stubbornly continue to occur.
