Medication Errors in Nursing Homes
Many nursing home residents are on several prescriptions and must take medicine throughout the day. While the medication regimen can be complex, it is the responsibility of nursing homes and their staff members to safely administer prescription drugs.
Examples of nursing home medication errors include:
- Dosage errors
- Administering the wrong medication
- Failure to account for adverse drug reactions
- Failure to account for harmful food interactions
Psychoactive drugs and anticoagulants are the most common source of injury, but any medication error can prove harmful. Our lawyers have the experience and resources to find the facts in nursing home medication error cases, and to identify responsible parties.
