Medication Error Claims in Oceanside

Fraser was an experienced respiratory therapist before she became an attorney, and she maintains strong ties with the medical community in and around Oceanside. With a solid understanding of how medications react and interact in the human body, Fraser knows when medical professionals should be held responsible for the medication errors committed under their watch, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Prescribing drugs that negatively interact with other medications
  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication
  • Prescribing or administering the wrong dosage
  • Gathering inadequate information before prescribing
  • Providing illegible or incoherent instructions
  • Dispensing wrong medication or dosage at the pharmacy

While many instances of medication error may be attributed to the mistake of one or more individual medical professionals, some others may be the result of more systemic problems within a hospital or medical practice in Oceanside, including incidents that occur under the following circumstances:

  • When hospital or clinic staff make errors because they are understaffed
  • When gaps of knowledge exist because of inadequate training or access to information

Through her Oceanside personal injury practice, Fraser is committed to helping patients and their families hold negligent physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and any other medical professionals accountable for any undue pain and suffering associated with these preventable medication errors.
