Each year, several nursing home residents become victims of prescription drug mistakes. These types of mistakes can be deadly or cause patients to sustain significant personal injury. If you or a family member has suffered due to a prescription mistake, we strongly urge you to speak with a skilled nursing home abuse and neglect lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your legal rights are safeguarded. Nursing home abuse lawyers often work with physicians in order to identify prescription errors, which is crucial in pursing a lawsuit against a negligent nursing home facility.
Another common type of prescription drug error is overmedication. Overmedication can result in severe injuries and harm such as fractured bones, head injuries, and even death because the effects of certain drugs can make the nursing home resident more prone to falls. Too many prescription drugs can affect an elderly individual’s balance and coordination, resulting in a serious fall .
