Medications must be properly prescribed and dispensed

Whether you are being treated for a short-term medical issue like a sinus infection or a chronic condition like rheumatoid arthritis, you expect that the medications you receive are the correct medications in the correct dosages to treat the condition. You don't expect that the medications you are given will be incorrect or that they will harm you. In some cases, things occur that lead to medication errors.

Birth injuries can cause life-long problems for a child

No woman goes into a medical facility for her labor and delivery thinking that she or her baby will be harmed. Sadly, there are some instances in which the baby does get harmed. Birth injuries, including brachial palsy and cerebral palsy, can be the result of medical malpractice or negligence during the birth of the child. In those cases, claims for compensation are often forthcoming.

Interestingly, there are instances in which errors can be made and patients won't receive the proper medications. In some cases, this is because of packaging or labeling issues.
