Errors in prescribing medication can have very serious consequences for the patient. An error can occur on the part of the doctor writing the prescription, or on the part of the pharmacist dispensing the drug. A doctor may make an error in the dose of the drug, or the actual name of the drug, as well as prescribing a drug to which the patient is know to be allergic. A pharmacist may issue the wrong drug, or the incorrect dosage. These can all result in the patient sustaining a significant injury.
