CVS Medication Error Lawyer
South Florida is a popular place to retire. It’s warm weather and sunny skies make it a great place to live. For those who enjoy fishing, boating, or just being outside, South Florida is the place to be.
As we grow older, our bodies become more susceptible to age-related diseases. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, lung diseases, depression, and macular degeneration are some examples of common illnesses that we may fight as we age. Doctors often prescribe multiple medications to fight these illnesses and minimize our symptoms. With elderly patients taking so many medications, errors in prescriptions can be painful as they can react negatively with other medicine being taken. In some cases, prescription errors can cause serious injury to our bodies internally. If you or someone that you love has been injured as the result of a medication error, you should contact the Florida personal injury attorneys at Wolfson & Leon at (305) 285-1115.CVS Pharmacy Medication Errors
Many people fill their prescriptions at CVS pharmacies. They are conveniently located in neighborhoods and communities throughout South Florida. Like many other large pharmacies, CVS can fill hundreds of prescriptions each week. Although CVS uses trained pharmacists, mistakes can be made when prescriptions are filled. Some of the most common errors that can occur include:
- Wrong medication – Many prescription medications have similar-sounding names. These can be entered incorrectly into the computer system or misread and filled with the wrong pills. Medication that is improperly labeled when it is put into inventory can also result in the wrong medication being dispensed.
- Allergies – Patients may be allergic to certain types of medication. When an allergy is known, the pharmacist may be the last line of defense for a customer to ensure that they are not prescribed medication that they are allergic to.
- Incompatible medication – Certain medications can react negatively with others. It may just render the medication useless and provide no healing benefit to the patient. Other times, incompatible medications can cause serious brain or organ damage.
- Lack of or incorrect directions – In some cases, prescription errors may occur when proper directions aren’t given. This can lead to patients taking the wrong dosage or not being able to properly identify side effects that should be reported to a doctor.
