Medical Malpractice: Medication Errors

About Medical Negligence in Fort Lauderdale

Medical malpractice is a serious issue in the United States, affecting millions of Americans each year. Roughly one quarter of all reported malpractice cases involve a medication error of some kind, and the Food and Drug Administration estimates that such errors occur in one in every five doses given to patients. It is usually nurses, hospital support staff, and pharmacists that are charged with malpractice involving a medication error, as they are typically the ones most involved in administering medication to patients. Should injury, illness or death be causes as a result of the error, the individual and facility should be held accountable for the damages the victim has sustained.
