How Medication Errors Happen in Philadelphia

It might surprise you. Medication errors in Philadelphia are more common than many people realize.

With so many people responsible for getting you the medication you need, including your doctor, nurse, and pharmacist, there is plenty of opportunity for something to go wrong. No matter how the medication error that caused you harm happened, one thing is certain: you need help moving past the devastating consequences.

Who’s Responsible for Your Medication Error in Pennsylvania?

The first step toward getting help and the treatment you need to overcome your medication error is to file a medical malpractice claim. This is not easy, and it requires you to know how your medication error happened, and who is responsible.

Some of the most common reasons medication errors happen in Pennsylvania include:

  • Wrong medication
  • Incorrect strength
  • Wrong labeling
  • Lack of directions and information on the labels
  • Interactions with other medications

If your doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional was negligent about the type of medication given to you or prescribed for you, or if your pharmacist did not give you the right dosage or instruction, you might have a medical malpractice case.
