MEDICATION ERRORS

Health care is sometimes a two way street.

What I mean by that is the following:

Doctors and nurses treat patients, advise on what to do, how to be, what not to do, etc. And sometimes, the health care providers make mistakes and harm results. And sometimes the patient makes mistakes and harm results.

We have handled many medication cases. Cases where pharmacies have given patients the wrong medication, or wrong dose. Cases where physicians have prescribed medications that either the patient had a known allergy to, or the medical literature suggested should not be prescribed. These are potential medical malpractice cases.

There are however, incidents where patients make mistakes. What kind of mistakes?
Here is a great blog on those kind of mistakes.

When you the patient makes the mistake, there is really nothing an attorney can do. So please,

Be careful.
Take care of yourself.
Be well.
