Effective Help For Those Injured By Medication Errors
Proper prescription and use of drugs has always been a cornerstone of effective medical care. That situation has only increased in recent decades as the pharmaceutical companies develop more and more drugs to treat a host of illnesses and medical conditions.
For medication to work properly, it must be handled properly. This means understanding what the drug does and does not do along with a whole host of other factors. Doctors, nurses and other health care professionals make mistakes with drugs that cause serious, even possibly fatal harm.
Medication errors can include:
- Failure to look for adverse drug interactions
- Failure to monitor for harmful side effects
- Prescribing or dispensing the wrong drug
- Leaving people on a drug for too long
Here in Southern Georgia, we have a number of cases of MRSA. Doctors have prescribed gentamicin, a strong antibiotic to help fight MRSA infections. There have been instances of doctors prescribing this drug for weeks at a time when it should be used for no more than a few days. This is just one example of how even skilled professionals can make mistakes regarding medication.
