Among the many deadly mistakes a medicinal practitioner can make, a pharmacy error is one of the most common. This is where the medicine you were prescribed and then given by a local pharmacy ends up causing you harm. There are many different types of pharmacy errors, and there are some causes of pharmacy errors that are more common than others.
Pharmacy errors can pertain to things like incorrect diagnosis, prescription errors, incorrect drug distribution, incorrect dosages, and more.
