Prescription malpractice often causes serious injury and even death. Manufacturers of prescription drugs have had massive recalls in recent years due to adverse effects being discovered after widespread patient use and injury. At least 400,000 patients are harmed by prescription malpractice every year in the U.S., some of them fatally.
There have been many high-profile cases (Fen-Phen, Rezulin, Baycol and others) where injuries were due to the drug being altogether unsafe. But even with prescription drugs that are proven effective and safe under proper conditions, several participants in healthcare delivery can still be negligent or reckless in the administration of medicine and medical devices.
