Medication errors are dangerous and often caused by careless medical treatment
A great deal of emphasis and publicity has been devoted to the discussion of medication mistakes in hospitals. While medication errors are way too common in hospitals, such errors occur elsewhere, too. A family doctor may order the wrong drug or the wrong dose of the drug. Or, a pharmacist may dispense a drug other than the one ordered by the doctor. There are many “sound alike” medications with similar sounding names but very different purposes. (For example, “Adderall” and “Inderal” may sound the same when called in to a pharmacy by a doctor or nurse, but are very different.) There are “look alikes,” too, which lead to medication errors when prescriptions are handwritten. (For example, dopamine and dobutamine.) These sorts of errors have led to serious injury and death. And they are entirely preventable. A medication error Involving diabetes medicine prescribed by a physician lead to a confidential settlement for the death of a young father who died of acute Pancreatitis, caused by the diabetes medication he prescribed.
