Prescription Mistakes

Medical errors occur all too often. Doctors may see dozens of patients each day or more, and sometimes fail to give each patient the individualized attention he or she deserves. This rushed atmosphere can result in a variety of errors, both large and small. One of the more dangerous forms of medical error is a prescription-related mistake.

Doctors’ poor handwriting is often treated like an old joke, but it can actually be dangerous. This problem can lead to a number of mistakes that can end up hurting you. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a negligent doctor who made a mistake while filling out a prescription, contact the Sheboygan personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at (920) 459-8000.

Potential Mistakes

When a doctor fails to put enough thought and effort into writing a prescription, he or she may become responsible for seriously harming a patient. A quickly written prescription that is not well thought out may:

  • Contain the wrong dosage level for the patient
  • Be for the wrong drug completely (Many drugs have very similar sounding names.)
  • Result in a drug interaction between the new drug and one the patient is already on

Preventable prescription errors are simply not acceptable. If your life has been affected by such negligence, you need to be fully informed about your legal options.
