Pharmacists undergo extensive training and education to learn how to correctly dispense pharmaceutical prescriptions. Once a doctor has prescribed the appropriate treatment for a disease, condition or other ailment, it is the pharmacist’s responsibility to ensure the patient receives the correct medication in the precise dosage determined by the physician. It is also the responsibility of the pharmacist to communicate any pertinent instructions and warnings to the patient regarding the medication.
Many patients’ lives depend on the medicine they receive from a pharmacy. Still other pregnant patients rely on pharmacists to dispense the prescribed medicine that is safe for their unborn child. Neglectful administration of the incorrect medication or wrong dosage is known as pharmaceutical malpractice. A negligent pharmacist is responsible for the damage caused by the mistake, and a lawsuit may require this person to compensate the injured party or the family of a person killed by the incorrectly filled prescription.
