Medication Errors

Are your medications safe?

Medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure approximately 1.3 million people annually in the U.S., according to the Food and Drug Administration. Factors like the sheer number of drugs being prescribed and used, the popularity of at-home prescription administration and the many look-alike, sound-alike drugs all combine to make taking medicine a health care crapshoot.
