When medication errors occur, a patient can potentially suffer life-threatening or fatal effects depending on his or her age, illness, allergies, the strength of the medication, and more. Unfortunately, these errors occur too frequently. According to research, roughly 7,000 Americans suffer fatal injuries each year due to medication errors alone.

Many medication errors occur due to:

  • Understaffed hospitals
  • Fatigued medical staff members
  • Careless medical staff members
  • Poor communication between medical staff members and pharmacists
  • Poor communication between medical staff members
  • Poor communication between patients and medical professionals
  • Illegible handwriting on a hand-written prescription

Common Types of Medication Errors

All medication errors, regardless of the types of medications involved, can significantly and negatively alter a patient’s life. These errors may occur in different ways, including:

  • Improper dosage: A patient can suffer extreme detriment due to a deficient or excessive medication dosage.
  • Wrong medications: If a patient is administered the incorrect medication, he or she can suffer extreme or fatal injuries, especially if he or she suffers from a severe allergy. This often occurs when medical professionals do not pay close attention to their patients' medical histories.
  • Mixing medications: In some cases, medical professionals do not consider the way specific medications can react when mixed with others. However, mixing medications can lead to severe adverse effects.
  • Failure to consider a patient’s medical history: When healthcare providers fail to examine a patient’s medical history, they can miss crucial information about a patient’s allergies. If the patient suffers from serious allergies, one dose of the wrong medication could be deadly.
