Pharmacies and their staff have a very important role in providing the correct and safe dosages of medication. Pharmacist must understand the physician’s order and fill it accurately. Most pharmacies today utilize state of the art computer programs to help identify potential problems with the prescriptions or errors in the order.
Patients also have a responsibility to take medications as prescribed. Our Florida patient safety attorneys recommend that you confirm that you are in fact taking the right dose of the right drug, at the right time, every time. Ask your pharmacist to provide dosage is information if you are uncertain.
