Common Pharmacy Errors
Pharmacies fill prescriptions and provide millions of patients with the medications they need to treat injuries and illnesses. Patients rely on pharmacists to perform the duties of their jobs with care. Pharmacists have a legal responsibility to obey industry best practices, such as communicating often with team members, double-checking prescriptions and properly informing patients about their medications. A mistake during any stage of the pharmaceutical process could lead to serious patient harm.
Common pharmacy errors include:
- Prescription or transcription errors
- Patient mix-ups
- Wrong medication dispensed
- Overdoses/incorrect drug strength
- Wrong quantity
