Homestead Pharmacy Negligence

Homestead is a community in South Florida, famous for being the home of Fruit and Spice Park, Coral Castle, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Monkey Jungle, the Homestead Sports Complex, and the Annual Homestead Championship Rodeo. Homestead is a great place to relax and fish, with visitors and residents enjoying the local Homestead Bayfront Park, John Pennekamp Coral Reef, Key Largo Hammocks Botanical Park, and other local parks for a variety of recreational activities.

Who is Responsible for Pharmacy Errors in Homestead and Florida?

Residents and visitors of Homestead rely on the local medical care system for treating injuries and medical conditions, but when pharmacy professionals are negligent in their duties, patients often suffer complications and in some cases severe injury. If you have been injured due to what you think may be pharmacy negligence, you can always contact the Flaxman Law Group for prompt, compassionate legal advice.

Depending on your case, you may have a medical malpractice claim in Homestead or your community if you've been injured by incorrectly dispensed medication or other preventable errors. In addition to the pharmacist themselves, there may be multiple liable parties in your case, including:

1) The doctor prescribing the medication. If a physician fails to fill out a prescription form correctly or fills out a form illegibly, medication errors can easily occur and the doctor may be held partly responsible if a patient is injured as a result.

2) The pharmacy. The pharmacy where the medication was dispensed may be held liable for any injuries that occur due to pharmacy errors if the pharmacy failed to provide adequate training or adequate screening of its pharmacists and employees.

3) The drug manufacturer. In some cases, patients who have been injured by medication may have a products liability case in Homestead or their community if a manufacturer failed to test the medication or marketed the drug incorrectly, failed to label a drug correctly, or failed to provide adequate information about a drug’s known interactions or side effects.

Preventing Pharmacy and Medical Negligence in Homestead and Other Communities

Any time that you have to take a new medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter medication – it is important to speak to your pharmacist and your physician about the new medication. Confirm whether the medication may contain any ingredients that you may be allergic to and confirm that the medication does not interact with any over-the-counter or prescription medication you are currently taking. You may also be able to reduce your risk of pharmacy error by always using the same pharmacy and by selecting a pharmacy and pharmacist that takes care to note your patient information, allergy information, and other medications you are taking. Some pharmacies have automatic systems that check patient records to ensure that drug interactions and allergies are less of a risk.
