Rhode Island Medication Error Attorneys

Medication Errors Are Preventable. If You Suffered Harm, Call Us at (401) 200-4059.

Healthcare providers have a responsibility to be diligent when providing medical care to patients. When they fail to meet this duty it is considered medical malpractice. One example of medical malpractice is medication errors, which can cause any range of problems for the patient, including overdose.

It’s incredibly easy for a physician to make a careless mistake in prescribing medication, or a nurse to administer the wrong dose. Administering the wrong medication can lead to tragedy, including the need for life-sustaining interventions.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Medication Errors?

Anyone involved in prescribing and/or administering medication can be held liable for medication errors, from physicians to nurses, pharmacists, and even hospitals.

If you or your loved one was a victim of medication errors, our Rhode Island medical malpractice lawyers can help. We can guide you through the process of pursuing justice and recovering compensation for any injuries or illnesses sustained.

What Is a Medication Error?

Doctors can make many types of medication errors, including:

  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Prescribing the wrong dose
  • Mislabeling the medication
  • Prescribing medication the patient is allergic to, or failing to screen for the patient’s allergies
  • Delivering medication that interacts negatively with the patient’s current medicines
  • Failing to warn the patient about the possible side effects of their medication
