Medication / Prescription Errors

CALL OUR FLORIDA NURSING HOME AND ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY NEGLECT LAWYERS

Medication is a common part of many elderly people’s lives, particularly for those in nursing home facilities. As a result, routine prescription regimens are critical to maintaining resident well-being. However, when these regimens are not treated with the vigilance they deserve, nursing and assisted living facility residents can be harmed due to medication or prescription errors. When negligence contributes to these errors, families may seek financial compensation for these inexcusable mistakes.
When these negligent medication or prescription errors take place, our team of nursing home and assisted living facility negligence attorneys are here to help. With over 150 years of combined experience, we know what steps need to be taken to substantiate your claim so that you and your loved one can get the justice that you deserve.

COMMON MEDICATION ERRORS

Implicating a beneficial medication regimen depends on precision and timeliness. Many nursing home or assisted living facilities have efficient, safe systems for distributing and administering medication, however, it only takes one error to put a resident’s health at risk.
Common instances of these prescription/medication errors include:

  • Delivering the wrong medication to a resident
  • Mislabeling or improperly storing medication
  • Administering the wrong dosage to a resident
  • Giving a resident medication they could be allergic to
  • Administering medication that has a known reaction to another prescription

If you believe that one of the above factors played a role in your loved one’s medication error, it may be time to seek legal counsel. Our nursing home injury and medical malpractice attorneys are ready to examine your loved one’s medical records, assess all relevant evidence and testimony, and develop a thorough and compelling claim for relief on your behalf.
