Causes of Medication Errors
Health care providers have an obligation to provide their patients with
the best medical attention possible, which includes taking into account
their medical history, allergies, or other prescriptions. However, when
they fail to perform up to their required standard of medical care, their
negligence can be directly responsible for causing harm to their patients.
Common causes of medication errors include the following:
- Give a patient the wrong dosage
- Give a patient the wrong medication
- Prescribe the wrong medication
- Fail to provide warning of all risks associated with the medication
- Fail to take a patient’s medical history into account
- Mixed various types of prescription drugs
