What Are Prescription Medication Errors?

When you go to the doctor’s office, hospital, or any other medical facility, you should expect to receive quality care from doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical staff. Part of that care includes prescribing the medications necessary to help you recover from your illness or injury.

This behavior is considered medical malpractice, and Scaffidi & Associates is prepared to fight for any damages and losses you or someone you know sustained as a direct result of prescription errors and other forms of medical malpractice.
