Types of Pharmacy Errors and Mistakes
There are several types of pharmacy errors or mistakes that can adversely affect an individual’s health. The patient can be prescribed the wrong type of medication or the dosage can be listed incorrectly. In addition, the patient can become ill if he or she is not advised on how to take the medication properly. If the pharmacist or physician does not consider the other medications that a patient is taking, then the patient can become seriously harmed. Some combinations of medicines can cause severe conditions or even lead to death. Pharmacy errors and mistakes are also caused when physician handwriting and abbreviations are hard to read.
