Medicine is supposed to make you better not worse. Unfortunately, medication errors happen far too often and cause serious injury and death.
The Food and Drug Administration estimates that medication errors cause an estimated 7,000 deaths per year in the U.S as well as hundreds of thousands of injuries. While most of errors go unnoticed, the FDA estimates that an error occurs in one in five doses given to hospital patients.
Our St. Louis medical malpractice attorneys can help you with:
Wrong medication prescribed
Wrong medication dispensed
Incorrect dosing information
Miscommunication between doctors and pharmacists
Failure to guard against harmful drug interactions
Failure to recognize drug allergies
Failure to provide drug consultation and explanation of possible side affects
Most of these type of errors can be easily avoided if medical and pharmacy staff pay attention to proper procedures and precautions.
