Question:

Who can be held responsible for a medication error?

Answer:

Medication Error Liability Who can be responsible for a medication error in the Tampa Bay area if it occurs? Well, it can be the doctor who prescribes, if it’s the wrong medication that’s being prescribed, or if the medication is being prescribed with other medication that’s contraindicated with that medication, meaning those two medications shouldn’t be taken at the same time by that person, so the doctor can be held responsible for it. A nurse can also be held responsible for it, if the doctor prescribes a certain medication and the wrong medication is administered by the nurse or the medication isn’t administered at all. We’ve seen instances of that occurring, as well. You can also have a pharmacy that might be filling the wrong medication, meaning that they’re providing a medication that isn’t the medication that the doctor is prescribing.

All of those providers can be held responsible – the pharmacy, the physician, the hospital, and potentially the nurse— depending upon the circumstances.
