Medication mistakes made by pharmacies

Patients in Connecticut can and do suffer severe injuries from medication errors. Whether a patient is given an incorrect dosage of medication or the wrong medication altogether, the patient could experience adverse side effects that are temporary, permanent or even fatal.

Avoiding medication errors in Connecticut infants

According to one study, over one-third of poison center calls related to children six months or younger were caused by medication errors. This was the finding of a study entitled U.S. Poison Control Center Calls for Infants 6 Months of Age and Younger. The study looked at 10 years of data from the National Poison Data System to come to this conclusion.

Study compares the safety of home and hospital births

Expectant mothers in Connecticut will generally be taken to a hospital or other medical facility when they are ready to give birth, but a comprehensive Canadian study indicates that home deliveries may be just as safe for women with uncomplicated pregnancies. The study compared the outcomes of 11,000 hospital births and approximately 11,000 planned home births in Ontario. The results of the study were published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Avoiding medication errors in Connecticut

Medication errors are all too common in many hospitals and medical facilities, but there are some basic steps that medical practitioners can take to prevent these mistakes from happening. Along with ensuring that medications and dosages are appropriate for a patient, medical staff should also ensure that individuals being transferred from another facility are given correct medication and that medication orders are clear.
