Hospitals and other treatment centers are obligated to administer drugs within a certain standard of supervision and disclosure to the patient. In some ways, their obligation to adequately warn patients of potentially dangerous side effects or complications from a drug is similar to the responsibility of drug manufacturers.
Examples of negligent administration of drugs
Some examples of negligent administration of drugs include, but are not limited to, the following scenarios:
- Patient receives anti-depressant medication while in the hospital with no warnings.
- Doctor fails to identify patient allergies before prescribing a medication.
- Hospital does not provide patient with medication instructions at discharge.
- A medical professional makes a mistake on a chart that results in an overdose.
- After discharge, experiences serious side effects resulting in permanent injury.
Health care providers are also obligated to administer the medicine properly. This can be complicated when the drug is administered via intravenous drip or other injection. Appropriate monitoring of such administration is vital to avoiding infection or other problems in the injection area.
