COMMON MEDICATION ERRORS

Implicating a beneficial medication regimen depends on precision and timeliness. Many nursing home facilities have efficient, safe systems for distributing and administering medication, but 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 patient
  • Mislabeling or improperly storing medication
  • Administering the wrong dosage to a patient
  • Giving a patient 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. At Brooks, LeBoeuf, Bennett, Foster & Gwartney, P.A., we’re ready to examine your loved one’s medical record, assess all relevant evidence and testimony, and develop a thorough and compelling claim for relief on your behalf.
