How Common Are Prescription Errors?

It has been estimated that over 51 million dispensing errors by pharmacies occur every year. These errors can take many forms: An incorrect dose or the wrong medicine may be sold by the pharmacy, the pharmacy may fail to recognize a dangerous drug interaction, or may fail to follow laws requiring counseling about certain dangers posed to the patient about the prescribed drug. The reasons for the prevalence of pharmacy errors are many, and include overworked and under-qualified pharmacy staff under pressure to fill prescriptions quickly.
