What Are Pharmaceutical Errors?

Pharmaceutical dispensing errors are far more common than you may think and the most common place they happen is at retail chain drug stores and prescription mail-order houses. Common pharmaceutical errors occur when:

  • The wrong doggies of a drug are dispensed
  • The wrong drug is dispensed
  • The wrong instructions are on the prescription label
  • Drug on drug interactions are not considered
  • The patient was not consulted on the proper drug usage

Prescription Drug Abuse

Under Section 11153 of California’s Health and Safety Code, there is an area that discusses corresponding responsibility. This means that pharmacists are required by law to ensure that the controlled substance that was prescribed by the doctor is being used for a legitimate reason. There are several steps that must be taken to ensure the medication is being taken as prescribed:

  • Running a CURES report
  • Checking the patient profile
  • The frequency of those prescriptions
  • Finding out if the prescription is also being filled at another pharmacy

You will need a Woodland Hills pharmacy law attorney to prove that you took the proper steps to ensure you did not contribute to prescription drug abuse.
