Is incorrect drug dosage a form of medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice affects patients in many different ways and can range from surgical errors to pharmaceutical mistakes. Sometimes medical malpractice takes the form of incorrect drug dosage. Taking too much or too little of a medication can worsen an existing problem and create a host of new medical issues. Thus, pharmacists are responsible for ensuring that you are given the correct dose of any medications you need. Sadly, though, they can fail in this duty to you.
