Doctor Errors & Misprescribed Medications
Many prescription errors are made by doctors who prescribe the wrong type or wrong dosage of a prescription drug. When a physician fails to take the proper steps and precautions to diagnose a patient’s condition, then he or she could prescribe:
- The wrong type of medication to treat the patient;
- A medication to which the patient is allergic; or
- Too high a dosage of a medication.
All of the above cases can lead to serious personal injury, illness, or death.
