Medication Error

Medication Errors Kill Thousands Annually

Medication errors are far more common than you might think. In fact, nearly 1 million mistakes may occur annually. Of these, 7,000 contribute to a patient’s death.

Medication error is any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or harm. Over the past decade, the FDA has received nearly 100,000 reports of medication errors.

Medication errors may happen in any number of ways. For example, a physician might confuse drugs with similar names or prescribe an incorrect dosage.
