How Could This Happen?

Doctors, nurses and administrative personnel are human and therefore prone to error. However, there are protocols in place to catch these mistakes and avoid serious injury or death. Medication errors, in particular, have strict guidelines to avoid confusion. The trouble starts when key individuals forget, disregard or circumvent the rules in order to get the job done. When this happens, people get hurt or worse. Some of the more common causes of medication error include:

  • Giving improper medication to the wrong patient
  • Combining multiple drugs to a dangerous effect
  • Failing to observe patients allergies
  • Over or under-dosing a patient
