Pharmacy Malpractice is a Serious Issue

Prescription drug use in America has doubled since 1989, butthe number of pharmacists has remained relatively the same. This allows eachpharmacist twice as many opportunities to make a mistake.

Only two states require pharmacies to report dispensingerrors. Georgia requires reporting dispensing errors that cause “significant”harm to a patient. North Carolina requires reporting only errors that result indeath.

While doctors may be responsible for diagnosing a diseaseand prescribing treatment, it is the role of a pharmacist to ensure that thepatient receives the correct type and dosage of medication.
