All drugs have the potential to be dangerous or even deadly when prescribed, filled or administered in a negligent or incorrect manner. When filled and administered correctly, prescription drugs can prevent and treat many medical ailments and problems, contributing to a better quality of life for many patients.
Just as physicians and nurses are required to uphold a certain standard of care, pharmacists also have a legal duty to protect their patients from unreasonable harm. When a pharmacist is negligent in administering a prescription, adjusting the dosage of a medication or failing to detect dangerous drug combinations, it is necessary to hold the pharmacy and pharmacist accountable to compensate the victim and bring about a necessary change in policies and procedures.
Prescription drug errors arise from pharmacy mistakes at places CVS, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target, Fred’s and in grocery store pharmacies such as Kroger, Safeway, and QFC, and are more common that most people think.
