Types of Pharmacy Malpractice That May Have Caused You to Become Sick
Maybe you went to St. Luke’s or Idaho Boise Hospital because you were injured and received a prescription medication to help. Or perhaps you were simply picking up your monthly prescription from your local pharmacy. Either way, you took the medication you were given and became extremely sick because of it.
Turns out, the pharmacist put the wrong medication in your bottle—and you weren’t aware of the mistake until it was too late. Pharmacy malpractice happens all of the time and can often end in tragedy.
A Variety of Different Forms of Pharmacy Malpractice Can Occur
Pharmacy malpractice can take place at any stage of the process. Forms of this dangerous negligence include:
- Incorrect prescription labels
- Wrong medications
- Incorrect dosage instructions
- Lack of proper technician training
- Incorrect label information
- Wrong dosage, leading to an overdose or under dose
- Failure to counsel patients
- Entering incorrect patient information
- Lack of pharmacist supervision of technicians
