South Carolina Pharmaceutical Errors Injuries

Countless people rely on medicine to control diabetes, lower cholesterol, and simply ease the pain of headaches. As we enjoy the tangible effects of various medicines, they can seem like modern miracles. However, pharmaceuticals are designed, manufactured, and distributed according to complex chemical sciences. Anyone who has gotten a prescription filled recently can tell you that medicines have some nearly unpronounceable names. Tongue twisters like acetylsalicylic acid and calcium carbonate antacid are one reason why healthcare professionals have to acquire specialized knowledge and skills to understand and use medicines properly. A patient benefits from the expertise of their medical professional, trusting they are receiving the right drug at the right dosage.

Tragically, pharmaceutical professionals can fail to live up to their patient’s trust. Every year, patients rely on doctors, nurses, and pharmacists to give them the proper medicines. Unfortunately, these patients may wind up taking the wrong medicine or an incorrect dosage of the right one. Sometimes that pharmaceutical error can cause serious physical harm to the patient, but victims of pharmaceutical errors do have legal recourse. The medical malpractice attorneys at Evans Moore, LLC recognize that the law expects healthcare professionals to treat their patients responsibly and carefully. If these professionals behave negligently or recklessly, their victims are entitled to financial compensation.

Common Types of Pharmaceutical Errors

Unsuspecting individuals can suffer from severe allergic reactions, unanticipated side effects, and even gastrointestinal bleeding because of pharmaceutical errors. These terrible ailments can land someone right back in the hospital. Victims of pharmaceutical errors can be burdened with physical pain and huge medical bills, and they often feel like they have no options. It seems unlikely that a medical professional can be held responsible for giving patients the wrong drug. However, the legal system actually takes medical malpractice very seriously, especially since many pharmaceutical errors could be easily avoided.

If a pharmaceutical error can be identified as medical malpractice, the victim has the right to monetary recompense. Negligence, recklessness, or unacceptable ignorance can all cause harm to a patient. For example, patients can be the victim of a pharmaceutical error when a healthcare professional:

  • Prescribes the wrong medicine
  • Fails to consult a patient’s chart to note allergies or other medical conditions
  • Writes down the wrong dosage for a medicine
  • Gives the patient the wrong medicine or the incorrect dosage
  • Provides the patient with incorrect instructions about how to take the medicine

Patients are in danger every time a medical professional fails to take the proper care. However, it can be difficult for people to identify medical malpractice. If you suspect that you or someone you love has been injured due to a healthcare professional’s negligent error, you should consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
