  • Prescribing the wrong drug
  • Using the wrong route of administration for a drug
  • Drug dispensing errors
  • Drug labeling errors that can result in a patient taking too much or too little of a drug
  • Failure to warn patients about drug side effects
  • Failure to consult a patient’s medical history, resulting in drug use that causes allergic reactions
  • Failure to ask what other drugs a patient is taking, resulting in dangerous drug interactions
