West Palm Beach Prescription Drug Error Lawyer
Prescription Errors and Compensation for Damages
A prescription is a written instruction issued by a medical practitioner that authorizes the dispensing pharmacist to issue the drug to a patient. The primary way these orders are relayed from physician to pharmacist is by handwriting the prescription on paper. Handwriting is often difficult to decipher. The glut of prescription drugs on the market has resulted in many drugs having very similar names. The potential for mistakes and abuse in this field are almost infinite.
