New Orleans Pharmacist Malpractice Attorney

James L. Arruebarrena View My Attorney Profile

Pharmacists have a very important job. They have to make sure that the correct medications are dispensed by their pharmacy, in the correct dose and to the correct person. Pharmacist errors can result in serious health effects and even death. Mixing up the child and adult dose of an antibiotic or pain killer can be deadly. Failing to check for interactions between medications or confirm drug allergies can result in serious allergic reactions and side effects.
