When a doctor writes you a prescription, you assume that he or she has carefully analyzed your medical needs and has selected a medication and dosage that will help you cope with a medical issue, rather than create a new problem. However, doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and other medical providers often commit medical negligence when writing prescriptions and this can cause devastating harm of which a patient is not made aware until it is too late. When a doctor commits medical negligence and medical malpractice in failing to monitor your medication dosage, fails to prescribe the correct medicine or fails to continuously check up on you to make sure that your prescription is still the right one, it can result in an existing medical problem getting worse or a new medical problem being created. Pharmacies who fill prescriptions can also be held responsible for medical negligence for filling prescriptions in a medically negligent manner that harms your health.
