Medication errors often occur because of a medical professional’s inattention to detail or poor communication between care providers. Errors including nursing and prescription drug errors can occur as a result of sloppy record keeping, a failure to properly monitor blood work, simple arithmetic errors, administering the medication in the wrong manner, or prescribing the wrong medication for a medical condition.
A medication error is a serious form of medical malpractice. It’s important to find a medical malpractice lawyer who is not only familiar with the law, but who also has experience handling these types of cases.
