Prescription Drug Malpractice

In 2001 alone, 105,603 medication errors were documented by Medmarx, the USP’s national database for medication errors. While many of these errors were corrected before they caused harm to patients, 147, or 7.6 percent of the total errors resulted in patient injury.

Medication errors occur when the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of a medication is prescribed due to negligence by a doctor, the hospital staff, or a pharmacy. These errors can be attributed to distractions, increased workload, and staffing issues.

The most common error associated with medication is incorrect dosage given to patients.

Other possible medication errors include:

  • Diagnostic error, which can lead to incorrect decisions related to therapy, misinterpretation of test results, or failure to act on abnormal results
  • Equipment failure, which causes misregulation of doses, such as defibrillators with dead batteries, or faulty valves of intravenous pumps
  • Infections, such as post-surgical wound infections
  • Blood transfusion-related injuries
  • Misinterpretation of medical orders, such as failing to give a patient a salt-free meal
