Did the Pharmacy or Pharmacist Make a Mistake?
When we leave the pharmacy with a prescription, we assume that we’ve been given the right drug, the right dosage and the right directions for taking it. More often than not, that assumption is correct. We go home. Our illness or condition improves. There are no adverse effects. All is well.
What you may not know is that pharmacies make a lot of mistakes. In fact, statistics suggest that pharmacy mistakes may account for nearly 100,000 deaths in the United States each year.

What Happened and Why?
Pharmacy-related medication mistakes happen for various reasons but are directly related to the fact that pharmacies are often understaffed. In some of the pharmacy cases we’ve handled, one pharmacist might be responsible to fill hundreds of prescriptions in a single shift while supervising two or three non-pharmacist assistants. This is just one recipe for disaster. Other causes include technology or communication errors, sound-alike or look-alike drugs, and improper instructions.
