What are prescription error claims? 

Claims for prescription error claims, or as it is often known prescription mix up negligence claims, fall into one of two categories, that represent the stages of the medical practitioner’s negligence, and these relate to: 
1. Errors made when the medical professional is Prescribing Medication, 
2. Mistakes made when the pharmacist, or other medical professional Dispenses your Medication. 

How do prescription errors happen? 

When it comes to the prescribing of medication, mistakes of any kind, or any size, can be extremely dangerous. Here at MG Legal, our medical negligence solicitors have worked with a number of clients who have been the victim of prescription errors, and been prescribed the wrong medication. 
Some of the common mistakes leading to prescription error claims include: 
The incorrect dosage being prescribed by doctors 
A mix up of similarly named medications being prescribed 
The prescription name being misread by the dispenser 
Prescription dosage being misread 
Prescriptions being deleted 
Prescribed drugs that require regular blood test monitoring being prescribed without checks 
Combination of medications that cause unsafe drug interactions 
If you have been prescribed or provided with the incorrect medication, or been the victim of a prescription error in any way, and suffered from injury or illness of any kind, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee prescription error claim with our medical negligence solicitors. Simply contact our solicitors online here for a free, no-obligation consultation with a specialist solicitor. 

What effects can prescription errors have on people? 

Our medical negligence solicitors are all too aware of how prescription errors can cause harm to people, and impact lives. We have spoken to clients who have suffered from serious health conditions, such as a stroke, or excessive bleeding and bruising, due to being prescribed the incorrect medication by a doctor and pharmacist. Obviously, if you are prescribed the incorrect medication, this can lead to the persistence, or worsening, of the condition or illness that you are suffering from that was supposed to be dealt with by the medication. 
Other common side effects of prescription errors include: 
Nausea, diarrhoea and constipation 
Abdominal pain and indigestion 
Muscular pain 
Visual problems 

How do you know if you have a medical negligence claim for a prescription error when prescribing or dispensing your medication? 

If a medical practitioner, such as a GP, or pharmacist has prescribed, or given you medication that is in some way unsuitable- from the wrong medication, to prescribing an incorrect dosage, and your condition has got worse or you’ve become ill or injured in any way, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for medical negligence compensation, on a NO WIN NO FEE basis, for prescription error claims. Whilst many prescription errors don’t have any serious consequences for the patient, for others it can have catastrophic and even fatal consequences. 

How to minimise the risk of prescription errors: 

When it comes to prescription error claims, and patients being prescribed the incorrect medication, the responsibility always lies with either the doctor, prescribing pharmacist, or dispensing pharmacist. The main way to prevent prescription errors is for the pharmacist and doctors involved to take proper care and double check the prescription. The way I which a pharmacy is set up is to ensure that this happens, with multiple people having to check and sign off on a prescription before the patients actually gets their medication. 
Still, when this does not happen, or when due care is not taken in these steps, is when mistakes and prescription errors are made and go unnoticed. Because of this risk, our medical negligence solicitors would always advise that you take the time to properly check that the name of your medication on both the prescription and the packaging matches up, as well as the dosage if this is given. Our medical negligence solicitors have even won compensation for people who have been given someone else’s prescription, with the wrong name on it- so make sure the name on your prescription matches yours, too. It can also help to mention to the pharmacist, as well as the doctor, of any medication that you are currently taking, just in case they have not properly read over your medical notes to see an incompatibility that might cause a dangerous reaction between two drugs. 
It is important to always remember that a prescription error is not your fault, and that it is not just a simple mistake. If you have been the victim of a prescription error, chances are that you are not the only one, and that your experience in representative of an individual who is not taking due care in their role, or of a pharmacy with failing working systems. The best way to address this and prevent anybody else being affected is to make a prescription error claim for medical negligence with our specialist solicitors, on a no win no fee basis.
