How Common are Medication Mistakes in Hospitals?
It is very common for medication mistakes to be made in larger healthcare facilities like hospitals because of how many people are involved in the process of getting medications prepared and administered to patients. More than 1.5 million Americans are injured every year by drug errors in hospitals and doctor’s offices, and at least a quarter of these errors can be prevented. Orders can easily be mixed up, the wrong medication can be given, a patient’s records may not be clear, drug interactions can occur, and various other issues that can lead to serious injuries, permanent disabilities and even wrongful death. A preventable medication error can easily add more than $5,800 to a single patient’s medical bill, and this adds up to be a staggering amount of wasted money every year.
