When most people think about hospital errors and Texas medical malpractice lawsuits, they think about mistakes in the operating room and surgical errors. However, one of the most common types of medical malpractice incidents is medication errors. Medication errors take place thousands of times throughout Texas each year – and many of these mistakes can have dire consequences including permanent health issues, pain and suffering, and even death.
What are some examples of medication errors?
It is important to understand that, while the correct doses of medication taken for the correct reasons can have health benefits and even save lives, the wrong dose or the wrong medication can cause serious medical problems.
