OCALA MEDICATION ERRORS LAWYER

Many pharmaceutical drugs available today are chemically complex and extremely powerful. While these advanced medications save and improve many people’s lives, dangerous interactions and human errors in prescribing and dispensing have become significant problems.

Has a doctor prescribed a medication you believe caused serious harm to you or a loved one? Were you given an overdose or the wrong drug while in the hospital? Did a pharmacist or pharmacy technician mishandle your prescription? Victims of medication errors in the Ocala-Gainesville area and throughout Central Florida can contact Steven Wingo, Attorney at Law for a free case evaluation and caring counsel.

TAKING ACTION FOR VICTIMS OF MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE

Everyone licensed to prescribe, dispense, or administer prescription drugs has a critical duty of care and diligence. Medication errors can have life-changing or even fatal consequences in situations that include:

  • Prescription or administration of a drug without verifying a patient’s known allergies, other medications, or other critical aspects of his or her medical history
  • Failure of a pharmacist or pharmacy technician to provide the correct drug, dosage, and essential instructions indicated by the prescribing doctor
  • A physician’s failure to consider dangerous potential interactions between specific drugs—including MAOIs for depression and anxiety—and other prescription or over-the-counter drugs
  • Nursing and hospital medication mistakes resulting in serious outcomes for patients
  • Prescription of the wrong antibiotic to address a potentially life-threatening infection

GIVEN THE WRONG MEDICATION, DOSAGE OR INSTRUCTIONS?

Disturbing information about the prevalence of pharmacy errors and the potential for life-changing, even fatal, outcomes has emerged in recent years. One major television network’s investigation of large pharmacy chains put the percentage of incorrectly filled prescriptions above 20 percent.

Pharmacy mistakes that can have devastating consequences include:

  • Confusing two different medications or otherwise dispensing the wrong drug
  • Mislabeling a prescription vial or bottle with the wrong dosage, patient directions or warnings
  • Dispensing multiple medications to the same person despite dangerous interactions
