Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Tucson: Medication and Overdose, Pharmacy Errors
There are several ways that mistakes involving medications can occur. When a doctor or a nurse administers too much or too little of a medication, or gives you the wrong medication, serious consequences can result. If a pharmacist misreads a prescription from the treating doctor, you can innocently take the wrong medication. Other dangerous mistakes include medical personnel not taking into account the interactions between different medications, not checking for possible allergies to certain medications, and failures involving the medication delivery systems, such as pumps, IVs, etc.
