Psoriasis prescription error case
Prescription error client
A man suffering from psoriasis developed an infection and a dermatology clinic advised his GP to prescribe him with antibiotics.
However, even though it was documented on his medical records that he was allergic to penicillin, his GP prescribed him with penicillin-based antibiotics.
He took the prescription drugs and suffered an allergic reaction; his psoriasis worsened and, as a result of the allergic reaction, he was admitted to hospital for 10 days while his symptoms were brought under control.
He contacted us for advice and our medical negligence experts successfully made a claim for compensation on his behalf.
One of our clients, who is allergic to penicillin, secured compensation after his GP prescribed him drugs to treat an infection that contained the antibiotic.
