During hospital stays, doctor visits and routine medical procedures, a variety of serious healthcare issues can arise as a result of a healthcare provider’s mistake.

Administering the Wrong Medication

Medication errors occur during the prescription and the delivery of medication to patients. Prescribing errors can happen when two or more drugs whose interaction is known to produce side effects are prescribed, if a drug to which the patient is known to be allergic is given, or if a drug is prescribed in the wrong dosage.

Wrong-route errors occur when a medication is administered via a route different than the intended route; there are many different methods for delivering a medicine (parenterally, enteral, oral, intravenously, intrathecally and intramuscularly) and there are not enough safeguards to ensure medicines are not administered inappropriately.

Numerous other types of medical errors and malpractice can occur. Learn more.
