Many Arizona residents fall victim to prescription errors each year. You may have visited a clinic or emergency room with the expectation that doctors, nurses and other staff will pay careful attention to your prescription needs only to suffer serious side effects after being given the wrong medication, the wrong dose or a drug that you were allergic to.
Medications have the potential to make our lives better. However, doctors and nurses in understaffed clinics or hospitals often feel rushed and might not give proper attention to their patient’s medical history, prescribed dose or possible interactions with other medications. You may have been a patient in a hospital where staff made a mistake in prescribing or administering the wrong medication or dosage to you. A pharmacist may have filled your prescription improperly, reading the wrong drug name on your prescription, failing to give you the right dose to control your condition or reading the wrong name on your prescription label.
