Medication errors are on the rise at an alarming rate, and many medication errors can cause significant personal injury or even death. In 2010, there were approximately 17,000 medication errors, and in 2016 the error rate increased to 94,000 according to data from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
This number is based on self-reported claims; thus, the 462 percent increase is likely underestimated. Medication errors injure 1.3 million Americans each year and kill one patient every day.
