Medication errors are a violation of the trust a patient puts not only on the doctor but on the entire medical profession. The medical profession is filled with outstanding doctors that put forth a high standard in treating patients, prescribing medication, and following up with their patients; but sometimes the wrong medication or the wrong dosage is prescribed or administered by the doctor, hospital staff, nursing or pharmacy.
A 1990 study of prescribing medication errors detected an estimated 3.13 errors for each 1,000 orders written and a rate of 1.81 significant errors per 1,000 orders.
