According to the FDA
According to the FDA, pharmaceutical errors cause one death per day and injure 1.3 million people in the U.S. per year.
There are a multitude of possible errors:
- Incorrect dosage
- Incorrect drug prescribing
- Errors in packaging
- Errors in dispensing
- Negligent administration
- Negligent monitoring of a drug by a medical professional
Such errors might be caused by communication breakdowns, vague directions, product name confusion, or poor training, procedures and techniques.
Impact of a pharmaceutical error
The impact of a pharmaceutical error can be devastating: an overdose can kill, as can the taking of an incorrect medication that interacts with another; also, an incorrectly labeled drug that doesn’t treat the condition that needed attention can cause significant injury or death. Injury following a pharmaceutical error can lead to disabilities, change in prognosis, time off work, and emotional trauma.
