Fresno Pharmacy Error Attorneys
A Pharmacy error is a
medication error that occurs as a result of a mistake made by the pharmacy or pharmacist. Pharmacies have the responsibility of separating, handling, packaging, and dispensing medications to patients. Since prescription medications often play a critical role in the treatment of medical conditions, an error made by a pharmacy or one of its employees could have catastrophic consequences to a patient. This may include dispensing the wrong medication, the incorrect dosage of the medication, mislabeling the medication, failing to provide accurate instructions on the medication, distributing a medication a patient is known to be allergic to, and dispensing medication that will violently react with another medication the patient is known to be taking. Unfortunately, it's difficult to realize that there has been a pharmacy error until someone is seriously injured by his or her reaction to the incorrect medication. Often these reactions can result in cardiac arrest, coma, brain injury, and even death.
