Medication Errors from MiscommunicationQuestion:

What are medication errors from miscommunication regarding a medical malpractice case?

Answer:

Recently, I received a phone call from a potential client asking me about medication errors from miscommunication in a medical malpractice context here in Orlando and what those are. The answer is that humans are flawed, even doctors and pharmacists. Mistakes they make can result in numerous adverse consequences, including overdose, improper dosage, allergic reactions from unintended prescription medication use, addiction to a drug, or lack of correct medications, and this can cause severe harm to the patient. It is important to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable and understands where these communication errors can be found in order to identify them and make full recovery for your case.

Pharmacists make errors for many different reasons, despite the extensive schooling they go through. Some are just careless errors, but others are the product of the environment they put in.  Many times, the pharmacies put profits over safety by failing to spend the time and money on proper training, failing to spend the money on updated equipment, and failing to spend the money to implement proper procedures and protocols.  Also, some pharmacies have incentives for pharmacists to maximize profits by rewarding the pharmacists for speed and customer volume.  This can result in rushing and careless behavior which leads to errors. The Orlando pharmacy error lawyers at Norden Leacox will explore the true cause of the error, as that can make a huge difference in getting full justice for our clients.
