Pharmacy Malpractice Definition
A Pharmacist must be licensed to practice pharmacy. If he falls below the standard of care established by the industry, he will be guilty of malpractice. Malpractice generally occurs when the pharmacist provides the wrong drug, or the wrong quantity of a prescribed drug, or the wrong directions in taking the drug.
Pharmacists must also be aware of the interaction of drugs that have been prescribed by a doctor and warn the customer as to the possible side-effects of the combination of drugs.
