Holding Pharmacists Accountable for Mistakes

Florida’s medical malpractice statute does not designate pharmacists as practitioners like it does for doctors and nurses meaning they have a different set of state rules and duties. Florida’s courts have held pharmacies responsible for damages related to:

  • Dangerously high doses of medication.
  • Patient reactions, sometimes fatal, to drugs they were prescribed.
  • Adverse reactions from mixing prescribed drugs.

To legitimately claim malpractice against a pharmacist he or she must have acted in a grossly negligent manner. A personal injury attorney specializing in pharmacy mistake injuries in Stuart FL can help determine if you have a case that meets the legal threshold.

Under Florida law, pharmacists owe their customers “a duty to possess and exercise” a reasonable degree of skill, knowledge, and care. Fortunately, today’s technology has provided greater safeguards at the pharmacy but risks still exist and mistakes still occur.
