Prescriptions and Illegible Handwriting

While the illegibility of many doctors’ handwriting has long been a joke, it is in actuality a very serious problem which concerns millions of Americans. When doctors give us prescriptions, our health relies on the ability of pharmacists to accurately read and process that prescription. If someone is given the wrong drug because the pharmacist has incorrectly read the prescription, that patient’s health may be in serious jeopardy. The result can be long-term illness, disability, or even death.

The Right to Refuse a Prescription

The effects of a wrongly filled prescription can be incredibly serious, including:

  • Illness
  • Worsening of pre-existing condition
  • Disability
  • Fatality

It is estimated that approximately 90% of prescription errors are preventable. Experts in the medical field have suggested that the best way to combat these preventable injuries is to demand legible prescriptions. If you cannot accurately read the prescription, it is entirely possible that your pharmacist will not be able to, either.
