How can a medication error occur? Usually, this occurs because of a medical professionals’ inattention to detail or poor communication between the care providers. Medication errors, including nursing medication errors and prescription drug errors, can occur as a result of sloppy record keeping, a failure to properly monitor blood work, simple arithmetic errors, administering the medication in the wrong manner or prescribing the wrong medication for a medical condition.

A medication error is a serious form of medical malpractice. It’s important to find a Kentucky or Indiana medical malpractice lawyer who is not only familiar with Kentucky and Indiana medical malpractice law but who also has experience handling these types of cases.
