In the context of medical malpractice, medication errors usually refer to mistakes made by health care providers. The error usually takes one of two forms: a nurse or doctor giving a patient the wrong medication or administering the incorrect dosage of the right medicine.
Both kinds of mistakes can have serious side effects like gastrointestinal problems, organ damage, brain damage, seizures, coma, or even death.
