The Dangers of Prescription Medication Errors

A recent Fox News article highlighted an episode where a Mother (who was fortunately also a Nurse) figured out that the prescription they were given for their child was in error potentially putting the child’s life in danger if the medication was taken. Fox News went on to say that 1.5 million Americans are affected each year by prescription errors, either by the Doctor or filled incorrectly by the Pharmacy. This accounts for over 7,000 deaths a year, clearly more deaths than the entire 7 years that the Iraq War accounted for.
