Causes of Medication Errors
Medication errors are one of the most common medical mistakes which occur
in the United States. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA), approximately 1.3 million people are injured by medication errors
every year and results in one death every day. They can occur anywhere
in the distribution system, such as prescribing, repackaging, dispensing,
administering, or even monitoring.
Common causes of medication errors include:
- Poor communication
- Inadequate procedures or techniques
- Vagueness in product names, medical writing, or directions for use
Due to the implications of any medication error, medical providers and
hospital personnel are taught to record as little as possible in a patient’s
chart, as opposed to a detailed form. That way, if the information is
sent to a hospital attorney because a medication error claim,
medical malpractice cannot be found based on what is on the form.
