Every year, pharmacy error results in the death of more than 100,000 individuals. While most people think of surgical errors as the most dangerous medical mistakes possible, the consequences of certain pharmaceutical errors can be just as devastating. One unfortunately common form of pharmaceutical error is incorrect labeling.
Incorrect labeling is when a pharmacist makes a labeling error when he or she fills a prescription. Just the slightest mistake on a prescription label can result in the death or serious injury of an innocent individual.

The Most Common Labeling Errors
Pharmacy negligence is typically the cause of most labeling errors, but no matter the cause, the outcome is rarely good and is never acceptable. Some common labeling errors that can result in serious harm or even death to a patient are:

- Overfull prescriptions and dosage time period errors
Labeling errors can lead to a number of issues including drug over dose.
