Do you look at prescription medication before you take it? Do you check the description to make sure it matches what you’re supposed to be taking? Do you check to make sure the pharmacy’s instructions for taking the medicine match your doctor’s?
By and large, pharmacists do an excellent job dispensing medication accurately as ordered by the prescribing physician. Nevertheless, unfortunately, mistakes do happen.
You might be given the wrong medicine. You might be given the right medicine but the wrong dosage. You might be given the right medicine in the right dosage accompanied by the wrong instructions. You might be given a different patient’s medicine altogether. I have seen all of these.
Pharmacists generally do an excellent job. But if you or your loved one has become sick or injured as the result of pharmacy error, feel free to call me to discuss your rights under the law. I will take your claim seriously.
