Prescription Mistake

Prescription mistakes are a common type of medical malpractice in Oklahoma. Contact our lawyers today if you have been adversely affected by a medication error.

Medication errors are estimated to occur at a rate of about .4% per prescription written. This works out to be one medication error for every 250 prescriptions filled by patients. When the total number of prescriptions written in Oklahoma and across the United States is taken into consideration, it becomes obvious that medication errors are a problem with far-reaching implications.

The majority of medication errors involve a doctor giving a patient an incorrect dose either for their body size of for the condition they are trying to treat. Other common medication errors include administering the wrong drug, giving the patient a drug that they are allergic to, or prescribing a toxic combination of drugs.

Although most prescription errors do not end up producing long-lasting adverse effects, there are some cases that have more devastating consequences. Drug allergies and toxic drug interactions due to prescription mistakes are the cause of numerous wrongful deaths every year, not to mention the many people who have prolonged hospital stays and inflated medical bills due to medication errors.
