Big Pharmacies and Prescription Mistakes
It may seem that the bigger the pharmacy, the more oversight there will be. Most people tend to trust larger companies out of a false sense of security. While it is true that there may not be an entire corporation committee dedicated to combating prescription errors within a small pharmacy as there may be at large pharmacies, big pharmacies are far more likely to make prescription errors and to get away with it.
Bigger is not always better, and this is incredibly true when it comes to pharmacies. If you or someone you love has been seriously harmed by a pharmacy error, contact a Champaign personal injury lawyer at the office of Spiros Law, P.C. today at 217-328-2828.
Any pharmacy, no matter how big or small, is capable of making serious, potentially deadly prescription errors, and prescriptions should always be double checked to try and avoid a pharmacist’s or pharmacy tech’s negligence, but large pharmacies are faced with these additional problems that lead to pharmacy error:
Crowded with patrons–the more patrons there are to help, the more pharmacists get worried about filling prescriptions as quickly as possible.
Lots of pharmacy techs–there are more pharmacy techs who are not very knowledgeable to help deal with the crowds
Next time you take your prescription to a pharmacy, make sure to double check the medicine you are given to avoid a potentially deadly mistake.
