In general, our case experience reveals the following about the types and reasons for medication errors.

The Most Common Types of Medication Errors

Our case experience at Horn Law supports other expert opinion that the most common medication errors include:

  1. Confusion caused by similar drug names
  2. Administering the wrong dosage
  3. Failing to account for a patient’s medical history
  4. Mis-communication between doctors, nurses, and pharmacists
  5. Failing to check patient identification to ensure a drug is administered to the right patient

The Most Common Reasons For Medication Errors

  1. Environmental Distractions – increasing demands upon nurses and/or pharmacists, work interruptions such as personal business, high noise levels, speakers, and telephones
  2. Staffing Issues – too few employees, many who may not be properly trained or supervised
  3. Safety Breakdowns – safety policies, procedures, and protocols are not followed
