All doctors, nurses and pharmacists undergo extensive training that teaches them how to prevent making prescription errors. This is why medication errors are almost always avoidable and few justifications can be made for their occurrence. The prescribing physicians, administering nurses, pharmacists, or the pharmaceutical company, or any other party responsible for making the error can be held liable for their actions.
The most common forms of prescription error include:
Administering the wrong medication
Administering a medication to the wrong patient
Administering pain medications or sedatives to an intoxicated patient
Experimental drugs prescribed without patient consent
Medication which is inappropriate for the medical condition
Medication which is inappropriate for the patient based on medical history
Multiple prescriptions given in inappropriate combinations
