The Consumers section of the ArizonaCERT web site has tools to help patients use medicines and other medical products. Although prescription drugs are safe when used correctly under the care of a physician, they have the potential to cause harm to patients. The good news is that the majority of problems can be prevented or greatly lessened when patients and health care providers work together.
Patients and their caregivers play an important role in keeping medicines safe. By taking an active part in their health care in the doctor's office and at home, patients and their caregivers can avoid mistakes or problems with their medicines.
