Medication errors can include failure by a pharmacist to follow the directions on a prescription, leading to the incorrect dosage or incorrect medication altogether being dispensed.
It can also include the failure by care homes to administer any or the correct medication.
Medication errors can lead to lengthy and unnecessary suffering from a condition which isn’t being appropriately managed and/or side effects of the mis-prescribed/administered drug.
