Aggressively Advocating For Pharmacy Malpractice Victims 

The prescription that was supposed to heal you hurts you instead.

While the precise definition, scope, and legal consequences of medical malpractice depend on a variety of factors, this term generally refers to negligence committed by a licensed healthcare provider that causes injury to a patient or the death of a patient. Pharmacy malpractice refers to the negligent or reckless actions involving the prescription of medication.

If you have been injured by a medication mistake, you’re likely facing a long battle with insurance and the medical industry to get the money you need to heal. The last thing you need right now is to add even more stress to your recovery by trying to handle an insurance claim or legal battle on your own. That’s where we come in.

What Is Pharmacy Malpractice?

Pharmacy malpractice refers to many instances involving medication. This includes the failure to prescribe, administer, or dispense a medication, a patient receiving medication too early or too late, a patient receiving a drug not authorized for them, incorrect prescription dosage or preparation, administration errors, the failure to take into account a patient’s medical conditions or potential drug interactions, or medical personel not following proper dispensing/prescribing rules for a medication

These errors can take place in a hospital, doctor’s office, pharmacy and other medical spaces.

With nearly 7,000 prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs available in the United States, contributing to between 7-9,000 deaths related to medication errors each year.

Factors attributing to mishandling of medication

Many factors can cause errors in prescribing medications such as unrealistic workloads, distractions, poor penmanship, inadequate technician assistance, mistaking drugs with similar names and packaging

A study of 500 pharmacists done by The Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company showed that 52% of errors were due to the wrong drug being dispensed, 27% were from the wrong strength being dispensed, and 7.4% were due to wrong directions being given.

Holding Negligent Pharmacists Responsible

We Don't Settle for Less. Neither Should You.

Contact Us

A pharmacist who officially fills a prescription may be responsible for incorrectly filling a prescription that causes injury or death because he or she breached the standard of care. Also, any technical or clerical co-workers of the pharmacist who failed to act in accordance with proper procedures potentially can be held liable. The pharmacy can be held liable for the harm caused by the employee in the course and scope of employment as well.

Recommendations for helping avoid pharmaceutical errors include:

  • Checking the prescription before leaving the doctor’s office
  • Making sure the writing is clear
  • Verbally confirming the drug and dosage schedule with the doctor/pharmacist and comparing it with the written prescription form
  • Read the label on the prescription once it’s filled
  • Ask the pharmacist to open the prescription container and confirm the medication inside is correct
  • Seek counseling from the pharmacist for any new medication to clarify any potential interactions with other drugs
  • Ensure that the pharmacist has reviewed the prescription and dispensing of the drug
