Common Medication Errors in Chicago
One of the most common fatal medication errors is a mistake in the dosage administered. The difference between a safe dose and a deadly dose can be very small, depending on the condition of the patient and the drug being administered. Older patients and diabetic patients suffer an alarmingly high rate of medication errors.

Another common error is giving the wrong medication altogether. When the wrong drug is given to a patient, the results are unpredictable at best. Medication errors also occur when a patient is given two drugs that are not supposed to be given together, or that a patient is allergic to. Hospitals are required to maintain careful records and track exactly what medications every patient should receive and does receive, including the dosage and timing of the medication.
