How is a medical or pharmacy error defined?

by Lead Pharmacy Tech
(Major Chain Pharmacy )

I work at a retail pharmacy, one that probably everyone is familiar with-a major chain pharmacy.

We recently had a prescription error get past our pharmacist and go out to the patient.

How is a medical or pharmacy error or occurrence actually defined?

Are there any organizations or resources that can help with preventing errors and make our staff aware of things that can trip us up?

Any help you can be would be appreciated; thanks!
