Nurses may make mistakes in administering medications to patients; pharmacists may make errors filling prescriptions; doctors may misdiagnose a condition and prescribe the wrong medication or there may be a communication error with a pharmacy. Additionally, the wrong medication or an inappropriate dose of anesthesia medication could be administered during surgery.
