Medical Professionals Are Held To A High, Ethical Standard
Remember, medical professionals must uphold the highest standard of ethics because they are dealing with life and death situations. If they make mistakes, they should be held accountable. There are generally three types of medication errors:
- Too much medication: If a nurse or pharmacist gives you an accidental overdose, the results can be liver failure, kidney failure, respiratory depression or death.
- The wrong medication: When the wrong medication is administered, patients are harmed twice: first, for possible reactions to the wrong medicine; and second, for not receiving the actual medication they need.
- Improper timing of medication: Patients depend on health care providers to dispense medication on time. When providers fail to do so, complications can occur, especially when patients have conditions such as diabetes.

We know how these mistakes can result in life-changing symptoms. That is why we provide our clients with the quality representation they deserve.
