How a Medication Error Could Spin Your Life Upside Down

Prescribing the wrong medication is not a simple mistake but can steal lives sometimes. When the medication prescribed goes wrong, it can be considered medical malpractice, causing long-term harm to a patient. Never believe that only a doctor can make a medication error. It can happen to the person who transcribes the doctor's prescription, the person who dispenses the medication, or the person who administers it.
