PHARMACY, PHARMACIST MALPRACTICE-PRESCRIPTION ERRORS-LEGAL CLAIMS
It has been estimated that there are 51 million medication/prescription errors in the US every year. They cause at least one death every day and injure over 1 million people every year.
Pharmacy errors occur because many pharmacists are expected to work long hours, sometimes filling as many as 800 presriptions in a single shift. Sometimes working 14 hour shifts. It is simply logical that some errors will occur. When they occur and cause injury to the pharmacy customer, the law provide a remedy, namely pharmacy malpracticephp
Medication related errors fall into many categories, including (1) wrong medicine, (2) wrong dosage, (3) wrong directions for use, (4) failure to recognize dangerous drug interactions.
Victims of injury caused by pharmacy malpractice are entitled to just compensation-just the same as any other injury victim.
