Today's pharmaceutical products are saving lives every day. But the wrong medication or the wrong dosage can be deadly.
Medication errors are common in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities and pharmacies where mistakes and mix ups can be made in dispensing medications and administering medications.

Serious medication errors also happen when a pharmacist misreads the handwriting on a doctor's prescription. For example, the doctor may have written "amoxicillin" for a child's ear infection. The pharmacist may have interpreted the illegible handwriting as "morphine." The results can be a wrongful death.
