What are the most common types of medication mistakes?

Roughly 1.3 million people suffer injuries related to medication errors and nearly $3.5 billion dollars are paid out for adverse drug events each year. The National Coordinating Council for Medication Error Reporting and Prevention (NCCMERP) specifically defines a medication error as “any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient or consumer.”

These types of mistakes occur when any health care provider or professional.

  • Prescribes the wrong type of medication
  • Orders the wrong dosage of a medication
  • Fails to assess the patient’s medical history and current prescription drug usage
  • Mis-labels a medication
  • Fails to properly communicate with other providers and/or the patient
  • Fails to adequately educate the patient about the medication
  • Fails to monitor the patient’s continued use of the medication
  • Fails to properly maintain and store the medication

All of these types of medication errors have the potential to lead to severe health complications and even death.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.
