There is always a chance of error to occur with prescribing and dispensing medications. Although there is technology in place to help detect medication errors, sometimes mistakes still occur. When something goes wrong with prescriptions—especially high-alert medications—patients can suffer serious injuries.

Because high-alert medication errors can be life-threatening, independent double checks in Kentucky have been put in place to reduce errors. In order to avoid a patient from taking the wrong dosage of drugs, two clinicians conduct their own independent checks on the medication to reduce the margin of error involving high-alert drugs. It is also recommended that patients taking high-alert medications should conduct some research of their own to determine the possible side effects of the drug.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of a medication error, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and damages.
