Are Incorrect Medications Considered Malpractice in Mississippi?
The wrong medication can lead to major bodily harm, permanent impairments, and death so ensuring that the right medication is prescribed is absolutely necessary. Because patients trust their doctors, they tend to trust the medications and the dosage that they are prescribed. Yet, just one written error or miscalculation by a patient’s doctor can lead to devastating consequences. The same is true for pharmacists that misread a prescription or fill one with the wrong medication. Negligence on the part of a pharmacist can also lead to disastrous repercussions.
Patients can help reduce the chances of being hurt by medication errors by examining their prescriptions and asking questions. Writing down the information that your doctor discusses with you including your medications that are offered during your appointment can help you compare that information to the medications that you receive. When you fill your prescriptions, taking the time to go over the dosage and the frequency at which you take the medications can also help.
Ultimately, it is up to your doctor and your pharmacist to ensure that what is dispensed to you is correct and will not result in negative health implications. If these professionals are incorrect and careless with making sure that you get what you need and they provide you with drugs that can injure you, you have the right to take legal action and secure payment for the damages you suffered.
