Medication Errors

Has Your Loved One Been Injured from a Medication Error at a Nursing Home?

Families entrust nursing homes and assisted living facilities to diligently and responsibly care for their elderly loved ones. In fact, nursing homes must maintain a medication error rate below 5%. Yet medication errors, including preparing and administering medications, remain far too common.

Improper or negligent drug preparation or administration can result in serious injury, falls and fractures, adverse reactions or interactions, and even wrongful death. Eisenberg & Baum's compassionate and skilled New York nursing home abuse lawyers will fight for your family and elderly loved one to get compensated for injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses. You don't have to go it alone, because our experienced attorneys will be at your side every step of the way.

Medication errors happen for a variety of reasons. Nursing homes and facilities are often understaffed, with nursing professionals feeling tired, distracted, and overworked. Some common negligent medication errors include:

  • Medication overdoses, under doses, omissions, or multiple doses
  • Giving the wrong medication or wrong strength
  • Giving expired medication
  • Mixing up patient documentation
  • Lab work errors
  • Patient monitoring errors
