Q: Can the pharmacists blame the doctor for a pharmacy drug error because the doctor had bad handwriting?
A: No. It is the pharmacist's duty to call the doctor back and double-check that the prescription filled was the one written by the doctor. Errors can occur for many reasons, including bad handwriting but these are not excuses to breach a duty of care.
You have rights in these cases and an experienced pharmacy malpractice attorney can help you protect them.
