Medical complications and injuries can be caused by number of things, including:
- Incorrect prescriptions
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Medical malpractice
- Dangerous medical devices
- Dangerous drugs
Many of these injuries and losses are completely preventable. When drug companies and pharmaceutical companies are cautious, they test drugs adequately and their products undergo multiple trials to make sure that the products are safe. Good companies also properly label their medication and disclose all information about their drugs, including the risk of potential side effects and interactions. In addition, if the drugs need to be compounded or mixed at the pharmacy, pharmaceutical companies and drug companies should be careful in ensuring that pharmacists have the information they need to compound drugs correctly.How Do Dangerous Drugs In Miami Gardens And Florida Get Into The Marketplace?
