Understanding The Risks

Medication errors can arise due to various factors, including:

  • Negligence: Careless practices, such as inadequate staffing or overworked personnel, can lead to fatal mistakes.
  • Inadequate training: Health care professionals who lack proper training or understanding of medication interactions are more likely to make errors.
  • Poor communication: Communication breakdowns between doctors, nurses and pharmacists can increase risk.
  • Systemic failures: Overworked staff, outdated equipment, or faulty protocols can create a system ripe for errors.

While some medication errors do not have a significant impact, many mistakes can have a lasting impact on your loved one and their prognosis.

Common Types Of Medication Errors

There are a few ways staff may make a mistake in administering medications, including:

  • Wrong medication: Administering the incorrect medication to a patient.
  • Wrong dosage: Giving a patient too much or too little medication.
  • Neglecting monitoring: Failing to monitor patients for adverse reactions.
  • Improper labeling or storage: Confusion or errors due to incorrect labeling or storage of medications.
  • Wrong time: Failing to administer the medication on time
