Medication errors in the UK are fortunately rare. There were 10,000 reported incidents of medication errors last year. This is against a backdrop of 1 billion prescriptions being written. However, 10,000 is still too many.
As advances in medication increase, so do the number of options available to medical professionals. This can lead to mistakes being made. If a patient is prescribed a large amount of medication, the chances of a mistake increase.
Also, as the number of medication options increase, the level of knowledge of medical professionals may decrease. It is obvious that if there if more options for a doctor to remember/know about, there is a higher change the a mistake may be made.
Medication / prescription errors can leave patients with short term health injuries or can have long term consequences such as a permanent disability or even death.
