The medicines you get from your doctor or pharmacist can improve your health and quite often make a positive impact in your life. But, if you’re prescribed the wrong dose or a totally different drug, severe damage can occur. Mistakes in medication can result in harm in two ways: either the medication results in injury or the incorrect dosage causes serious health problems. In either scenario the doctor who is negligently dispensing the incorrect medication is accountable for the harm the errors they made result in towards your health.
