Medication Error Lawyers
Nursing Home Medication Error Lawyers
Medication is a necessity for elderly individuals. This becomes problematic for many as mental capacity deteriorates because they still need medication but they are unable to remember to take it or become physically unable to do it on their own. When this happens, they become dependent on their caregivers to give them their drugs. When caregivers are negligent administering medication timely, serious problems often arise.

The Serious Consequences Of Medication Errors
Nurses and other caregivers are not only paid to provide adequate healthcare services to their patients, but they are also required by law to do so when they take on that role. This means they are held to a higher standard than a family member or a friend helping them out. When elders are neglected and/or abused by care providers, the following medication errors can occur:
- Medication administered without consent
- Incorrect dosage
- Incorrect Medications
If you suspect your loved one has a lack of proper care in a long-term care facility or a nursing home and that lack of proper care has resulted in medication errors, you need to take legal action immediately.
