Q: What are the most common pharmacy errors that result in injury?

A: The most common errors are:

  • mislabeling drugs with improper directions for their use;
  • not counseling patients about side effects;
  • not performing DUR- Drug Utilization Review- cross checking for side effects;
  • contraindications and other alerts that pop up in the pharmacy computer system;
  • transcription errors, where a decimal point is put in the wrong place or is omitted in the dosage instructions;
  • giving a patient someone else's medication in their bottle; and
  • putting the wrong drug in the bottle--switching bottles of two medications with different directions for
  • use for one patient, or putting Risperdal in a Ritalin bottle, for example.
