With the high volume of residents in nursing homes, it’s not entirely surprising that there are sometimes errors in the dispensing of medication. However, just because it may be common doesn’t mean it’s right or acceptable, and you shouldn’t have to put up with it if it has happened to you or someone you care about. Nursing home lawyers have experience dealing with a variety of nursing home neglect and abuse cases, including issues with medication errors that have caused health problems.

Types of Errors

There are a few different types of medication errors that can happen to nursing home residents. Residents can miss doses, be given the wrong dose, or be given the wrong medication entirely. Depending on the condition and health of the resident, each error can have varying degrees of impact. Regardless of the consequences of a medication error, it can also be an indication that there is neglect in other areas of the nursing home’s care. If you or someone you love has experienced a medication error while in the care of a nursing facility, contacting a nursing home attorney is the first step to make to correct the situation and pursue any compensation you may be eligible for.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

If you’ve been the victim of a medication error, or someone you know has, a nursing home attorney will know the best way to approach the situation and work for compensation from the nursing home. Individuals who try to fight for compensation on their own may not know the best tactics for how to deal with insurance companies and nursing homes, while trained legal professionals will.  It is in your best interest to talk with nursing home lawyers to find out what your options are in the event of a medication error situation. Once you’ve discussed the case, you will have a better idea of what you can do about the incident.
