Grasping the Nuances of Wrong Prescription


Grasping the Nuances of Wrong Prescription
Prescription errors can manifest in multiple ways:

  1. Incorrect Medication: Being prescribed a drug that isn’t suited to treat the diagnosed
  2. Dosage Mistakes: Receiving a prescription for the right medicine, but at an incorrect dose –
    either too high or too low.
  3. Drug Interactions: Being prescribed medicines that, when taken together, can produce
    harmful side effects.
  4. Allergic Reactions: Being prescribed a drug that the patient is known to be allergic to.
  5. Medication for the Wrong Patient: Instances where there is a mix-up, and a patient receives
    medication intended for someone else.
    Impacts of Wrong Prescription
    Prescription errors can lead to:
  • Adverse drug reactions.
  • Aggravation of the existing medical condition.
  • Development of new medical complications.
  • Emotional and psychological distress due to the harm caused.
