In earlier posts, Maryland medication error attorneys at Lebowitz & Mzhen Personal Injury Lawyers have suggested that our readers always provide their health care providers with a full list of the prescription and over the counter medications they are currently taking.
The Institute of Safe Medication Practices (“ISMP”) has published a Universal Medication Form for patients to give to their doctors and pharmacists at each visit. On the form, a person can list their medication allergies, their immunizations, their current medications, the strength of their medications, and the frequency with which they take each prescription.
In order to avoid harmful drug interactions that can cause serious injuries or death, please take the time to accurately fill out this form or a similar one and bring it with them to all pharmacy, doctor, or hospital visits.
Our Maryland medication error attorneys will provide a free consultation to victims of medication errors in the Baltimore and D.C. metro areas.
