- Incorrect substitution of measuring units
- Incorrect mixing of medication

Effects of Pharmacy Errors
Pharmaceutical errors fall under medical malpractice, and can result in serious complications and prolonged suffering for the patient. When a patient does not receive the appropriate medication for their illness or medical condition, not only do they continue to suffer with the current illness, but adverse side effects and other complications may arise. These complications may be due to a drug interaction with another medication they are taking, or could be the result of an allergy to an ingredient in the incorrect medication. In addition, the patient may suffer serious side effects of the medication, worsening their original condition that has still been left untreated.
Pharmacy and medication errors can result in dangerous drug interactions, overdose due to being given the wrong dose or incorrect instructions, serious side effects, dangerous allergic reactions, and more. These serious situations can cause lasting damage. The worst potential consequence of a pharmacy error is the wrongful death of a loved one.
