Drug Mistakes Kill

The treatment of an illness or injury can become life threatening or cause permanent injury if the wrong medication is used. This type of mistake is occuring at an alarming rate at virtually all levels of medical practice. The mistakes occur in hospitals, pharmacies, out patient clinics and even your trusted family doctors office. Many of the mistakes can be traced back to understaffing, fatigue, poor training and lack of attention to detail. It is also crucial for patients and family members or friends to ask what the medication name is and what it is used to treat along with the dose and frequency. Many medications have similar names and illegible handwriting on prescriptions and records can cause problems that can cost a life or injure a patient. These are preventable instances of malpractice that can be devastating.
