The Importance of Preventing Medication Errors
It often seems like the first sign of getting older is needing to take pills every day. Indeed, according to a survey prepared by the independent polling organization KFF, 89 percent of adults ages 65 and older in the United States said they are taking at least one prescription medication. And 54 percent of seniors said they were currently taking four or more prescription drugs.
The problem is that the more medications a senior needs to take, the greater the risk that they will make a mistake. Medication errors are among the leading, preventable causes of emergency room visits in southeastern Pennsylvania’s elderly population. According to a 2019 editorial in the Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, some of the more common examples of medication error in the older people population include:
- Dosing mistakes — taking an incorrect, higher, or even double the prescribed dosage;
- Administering the wrong medication due to confusing or look-alike packaging;
- Misuse of a medication dispenser;
- Taking expired medication;
- Failing to store medication in appropriate conditions;
- Improperly combining medication with food, beverages, or herbal substances.
In far too many cases, even a seemingly simple medication error can prove deadly. That is where our professional medication management services can help. If you have a vulnerable family member who requires regular prescription medication, our team can ensure that all of their prescriptions are filled correctly, that they take their medication according to the prescribed doses and schedules, and that they are monitored for potential side effects.
