Pharmacies are required to follow a number of procedures to ensure that prescriptions are filled correctly and safely. These procedures are generally outlined by government organizations, and if a pharmacy fails to follow these procedures, they may face criminal or civil charges.
These procedures include checking to make sure the person has the appropriate health insurance coverage, maintaining patient records of new and returning customers, and require customers to confirm that they understand the risks and dangers associated with the drug.
If a pharmacy fails to follow these procedures or incorrectly fills a prescription, then it may be liable for damages. If you or anyone you know has been injured because of a pharmacy error, contact the Kenosha pharmacy malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
