Medication Errors

Medicines cure infectious diseases, prevent difficulties during chronic illnesses, and ease pain. However, medicines can also cause serious reactions if misused. Surveys display taht medication errors happen all the time, an estimated one million each year, contributing to 7,000 deaths. Sadly, the medication dispensing/prescription error mostly occurs due to medical negligence i.e due to the fault of medical professionals such as doctors and pharmacists. This may cause short or long term complications in the patient's health

Medication errors can happen in both adults and children. However, as children are known for their vulnerable nature, more care is needed when prescribing or dispensing medicine. Pharmacists and doctors must contemplate a child's weight and age before prescribing any drugs. Unfortunately, this is not always the case; mistakes are committed by medical professionals or pharmacists occasionally, which can have an adverse effect on your childs wellbeing.

Medication errors can cause minor and serious health issues such as brain injury, allergic diseases, psychological disorder, and even fatal consequences which may amount to a medication error claim for compensation
