Careless mistakes can lead to serious injuries or even death
Every year, thousands of patients receive incorrect medication or medication dosage through no fault of their own and are left with serious injuries, many commonly requiring medical treatments. Such events occur when the prescribing physician is careless or the pharmacist is negligent in dispensing the drug.
