Prescription Errors in Orange County, California
Orange County Medical Malpractice Attorney
The term "prescription error" may be used to refer to any mistake or case of negligence that causes a patient to be administered, prescribed or dispensed the wrong prescription drug. Medication errors and pharmacy errors are closely related to prescription errors. A prescription error may occur because a patient is misdiagnosed, because a pharmacist cannot read a doctor's handwriting on a prescription slip, because a doctor writes down the wrong medication, or because any medical professional involved in the prescription drug process does anything that constitutes substandard care or medical treatment.
Despite how a prescription error may have been created, the consequences may be catastrophic. An Orange County patient injured by a prescription drug error may face hospitalization and expensive medical bills for treatment that would have been entirely unnecessary had the proper medication been prescribed in the first place. Prescription errors may also lead to missed work and financial difficulties due to rising medical bills combined with decreased income. This is why it is so important to work with a lawyer in filing a claim or lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries.
