What Factors Lead to Pharmacy Error?

Pharmacy errors have many causes, including:

  • Understaffing
  • Poor handwriting
  • Simple negligence
  • Outdated technology
  • Misleading or ambiguous instructions

When pharmacies and pharmacists do not live up to their professional responsibilities, they can be held accountable for errors such as the following:

  • Wrong medication – A pharmacist’s most important duty is to ensure patients receive the medications their doctors prescribed. Dispensing the wrong drug is a serious error that can have severe consequences for the patient.
  • Wrong doses – A patient who receives an overdose or too little of a prescribed drug can suffer serious harm and even death. This may be the result of a pharmacist providing the wrong size pills, measuring out the wrong doses, or providing incorrect instructions.
  • Drug interactions – Pharmacies are supposed to have programs to detect when a patient is being given drugs that are dangerous in combination with each other. This is particularly likely to happen when a patient is prescribed drugs by multiple doctors.
