Types of Medication Errors
Medication errors can occur in a number of different ways stemming from various professionals, including:
- Doctors: A doctor may accidentally prescribe the wrong medicine, improper dosage or a contraindicated medicine.
- Pharmacists: An internal or external pharmacy might fail to recognize or notice two drugs that are contraindicated.
- Nurses: A nurse may miss or improperly transcribe the medication and the mistake goes undetected.
