Hospital negligence can lead to dangerous medication errors

Many Illinois residents rely on medications to keep them healthy. The right dosage and/or medication is paramount in ensuring that patients receive the maximum benefit from a medication without suffering any adverse side effects. Medication errors caused by hospital negligence could literally put a patient's life in jeopardy.

Medications can become dangerous when errors occur at various stages. First, manufacturing mistakes can make a medication harmful. Doctors can prescribe the wrong medication or an incorrect dosage.

When filling a prescription, pharmacies could give a patient the wrong medication or dosage. Finally, nursing staff might administer the wrong drug or dosage to a patient. They might also give a medication at the wrong time.

If any of these errors happened to you or a family member, serious health issues could arise, or a loved one could die. Any number of reasons could lead to a medication error. The explanation for the error may not give you solace since the results are the same regardless of the reason. However, it is in the details that negligence is often established in Illinois medical malpractice cases.

Establishing doctor and/or hospital negligence in the aftermath of a medication error is vital to a successful civil claim. No detail is too small, and a thorough investigation of the circumstances that led to your injury, or the death of a loved one will be necessary. The more evidence gathered to prove your claim, the more likely you will receive the full amount of restitution to which you may are entitled. Understandably, enlisting the aid of an attorney with experience in cases involving medication errors is essential.
