Medical Malpractice: Medication Errors Lawyers

Serious medication errors also happen when a pharmacist misreads the handwriting on a doctor's prescription. For example, the doctor may have written "amoxicillin" for a child's ear infection. The
pharmacist may have interpreted the illegible handwriting as "morphine." The results can be a wrongful death.
