Medication errors occur in many different ways. One example would be a physician who is treating a patient who comes in for a painful condition and prescribes that patient too much pain medication. That would be one example where that patient may have some comorbidities or underlying medical conditions that put them at risk for dangerous condition if they’re given that pain medication. Another example would be a physician puts an entry into a medical chart, and that entry gets put down incorrectly by a nurse, and it goes to the pharmacy.
