Forms Of Anesthesia And Medication Errors
When medication errors are made, a helpful drug can suddenly become a deadly toxin that can cause life-altering damage to the human body. Some of the most common types of medication and anesthesia errors include:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Failing to take a patient’s medical history or drug allergies into account
- Prescribing or administering an unsafe combination of drugs
- Administering the wrong dosage of anesthesia or medication
- Ordering or using an improper delivery method such as ordering an intravenous form of medication when an oral form is more appropriate
- Failing to monitor a patient under anesthesia
