The Institute of Medicine estimates that the cost of treating medication-related injuries that occurred in U.S. hospitals alone tops $3.5 billion annually. The cost can be even higher for patients and their families.
Examples of medication errors include prescriptions that fail to account for known drug allergies or cross-interactions with incompatible medications, serious side effects from wrong medications, deprival of the right drugs, and adverse reaction to a super-charged dose. Some of the serious injuries that can result from medication errors include:
- Brain injury / neurological damage
- Organ failure / organ damage
- Sensory damage
- Cardiac arrest
- Disfiguring skin eruptions
