- Committing Prescription Medication Errors

Many hospitals hire physicians and surgeons by the day, which means that these practitioners may be unfamiliar with the particular procedures and staff at the hospital they are working at. In addition, hospital administration sometimes fails to adequately oversee the doctors who only work on a temporary basis. Both these factors can lead to errors.
