What Are Prescription and Medication Errors? Are They Common?

Medication errors encompass all mistakes involving prescription drugs, over-the-counter products, vitamins, minerals, or herbal supplements. According to The National Academies Institute of Medicine, medication errors are among the most common medical errors, harming at least 1.5 million people every year.

Errors are common at every stage, from prescription and administration of a drug to drug monitoring. It estimated that on average, there is at least one medication error per hospital patient per day.(2) Studies indicate that 400,000 preventable drug-related injuries occur each year in hospitals, another 800,000 occur in long-term care settings, and roughly 530,000 occur just among Medicare recipients in outpatient clinics.(3)
