Due to many factors such as unqualified pharmacy staff as well as illegible handwriting, a patient may receive an incorrect dosage of a drug or the wrong drug entirely. Furthermore, some patients are victims of harmful drug interactions when doctors and pharmacists have failed to identify and warn patients of the serious risks. Medical professionals have a responsibility to warn patients of risks as well as to insure that they are dispensing and labeling drugs correctly, and, many times, pharmaceutical negligence occurs where medical professionals have failed to follow the proper guidelines. Improper dosage of certain drugs and wrong medications can have severe, life-long reactions in some patients. Incorrect medications and dosages as well as drug interactions can result in permanent injuries to the heart and other vital organs, permanent disabilities, and even death.
