Medication errors can occur if a physician prescribes the wrong drug or if a pharmacist dispenses the wrong medication. Nurses can also make medication errors if they give the patient too much or too little of a drug. Medication errors have the ability to cause severe injuries and sometimes can lead to wrongful death.
Another type of medical malpractice is surgical errors. Surgical errors can occur from anesthesia errors, doctors operating on the wrong body part, the use of unsterilized equipment or if a tech leaves surgical tools in the body.
