What is Pharmacy Negligence?
When a licensed medical professional erroneously prescribes, administers, repackages, dispenses, monitors, or otherwise incompetently handles a pharmaceutical substance in a negligent manner, this may constitute pharmaceutical negligence. From a lack of understanding of medication effects (including side effects) and poor communication to total disregard for safety protocol, there are many ways pharmacy negligence can occur, including:
- Dosage Errors
- Unlicensed Prescribing/Dispensing of Medications
- Failure to Provide Patient Adequate Counseling (including usage instruction and warning about drug interaction, side effects, and warning signs of complications)
- Prescription Errors (prescribing or dispensing the wrong medication)
- Switched Prescriptions (accidentally providing a patient with another individual’s medication)
