FDA seeks to avoid patient injury from medication errors

People in Illinois and across the U.S. who go for treatment to a medical professional expect to receive the right care to improve on their illness or condition. Part of that is often receiving medication. Unfortunately, one of the most common mistakes that affects people negatively and causes injuries and fatalities is if there is a medication mistake. To combat this, regulatory agencies are constantly trying to find ways to improve safety. Such is the case with the Food and Drug Administration, which gives guidance to manufacturers, pharmacists and practitioners to reduce this danger.

Fatal car accident reveals read-end driver had meth equipment

Losing a loved one in a car accident is never easy. Those in Illinois who face the loss of a loved one in a fatal car accident need to know how and why the accident happened. This is why it is imperative that a full investigation into the actions that precipitated the automobile accident must be conducted in the event that the family left behind has the basis to move forward with a legal filing.

Research examines the risk to a patient due to medication errors

When a patient is receiving treatment for a medical issue in Illinois, he or she might not realize the frequency with which medical professionals make a mistake. These errors can run the gamut from giving the wrong diagnosis to a negligent surgeon performing surgery on the wrong patient or the wrong body part to making a mistake with medication. A fatal mistake is the third most common cause of death in the U.S. While experts are trying to put a stop to this, information is coming to light that computer systems to keep track of medications are not catching all the errors before they happen.
