  1. Legal liability and drug prescribing.

    Article - En anglais

    Approximately 20% of drug-related requests for medico-legal assistance are associated with the prescription of dangerous drugs of addiction.

    Pharmacists and nursing staff may become partly liable for failing to contact the prescribing doctor to clarify what is intended where there is any doubt about the prescribed drug or its dosage.

    Serious prescribing errors may give rise to criminal proceedings.

    Patients need to be informed of the material risks of any proposed treatment.
