Prescription errors can be caused by any number of circumstances, including:
- Physicians prescribing the wrong medication for a condition
- Pharmacists failing to catch a doctor's mistake
- Pharmacists filling the wrong medication or dosage
- Pharmacists failing to detect a dangerous drug interaction
Pharmacists are under intense pressure to fill an enormous amount of prescriptions per day. It is not uncommon for a pharmacy to focus on productivity rather than personal service.
