Causes of Medication Errors

From the moment your prescription is written, there are many opportunities for an administrative or pharmaceutical mistake to occur. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that nearly 7,000 deaths are caused by medication errors each year. Most medication errors go unnoticed, and the FDA claims they occur in a many as 1 in 5 patients.

Medication errors can be caused by:

  • Doctors prescribing the wrong medication
  • Doctors prescribing the wrong dosage
  • Miscommunication between doctors and pharmacists
  • Medical staffers failing to recognize drug allergies
  • Pharmacists dispensing the wrong medication
  • Medical personnel failing to properly label drugs

These errors can be easily avoided if medical personnel are attentive to proper precautions and procedures.
