Pompano Beach Pharmacy Negligence
Pompano Beach is a South Florida city situated in Broward County. The city is currently experiencing a building boom, thanks to efforts to revitalize the area and bring more jobs to the city. There are already many attractions that lure residents and travelers. For example, Sample-McDougald House is one of the oldest historic buildings in Florida. Pompano Beach is also home to one of only four Goodyear Blimps in the world; residents and visitors can even arrange a ride on the Spirit of Innovation. Pompano Beach Air Park offers a number of aviation services, including air taxi, scenic rides, charters, and other services. An offshore coral reef and a beach allow for plenty of water recreation, including diving, swimming, boating, and fishing.
Like all cities, Pompano Beach sees its fair share of personal injuries and resulting legal claims. One of these types of personal injury claims is the pharmacy negligence case. This occurs when a pharmacy is reckless in its duties and dispenses the wrong medication or the wrong dosage to the wrong patient. In some cases, negligence occurs because patient information is not checked or because the patient does not receive the right medication information. In all these situations, serious injury can be the result.

The most common causes for pharmacy negligence and malpractice include:
- Overworked staff
- A focus on speed over pharmacy safety
- Technicians and pharmacy assistants doing work that only licensed pharmacists should do
- Pharmacy professionals who are paid by volume rather than by time spent on the job
- A distracting workplace
- Inadequate policies in place at the pharmacy to prevent errors
- Distracted pharmacy professionals
- Medical malpractice resulting from doctor’s errors
Proper patient counseling is an important way to prevent pharmacy errors. In many cases, when patients discuss their medication with a pharmacist, any possible discrepancies between what the pharmacist notes on the prescription and what the patient was told in a physician’s consultation may come to light. For example, if the doctor told the patient that she would be taking one type of medication at a specific dose and the prescription seems to be for another medication at a different dosage, catching this error and clarifying it with a physician can help prevent a dangerous medication mix-up.
