Holding Nursing Homes Responsible For Medication Errors
Although the age and medical condition of nursing home residents make providing the right medications and dosages critical, nursing homes sometimes make medication errors that can cause serious injuries or death. If your family is in this situation, you need an attorney to help you seek compensation from the facility.
The lawyers at Wise Morrissey, LLC represent Illinois nursing home patients and their families in medication error cases. We know how to hold nursing homes responsible for their medication errors and work to recover the maximum compensation for the unnecessary pain and suffering such errors cause. You and your family can rely on our investigative experience and our ability to build strong cases for compensation for losses such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and wrongful death.
Medication Errors Can Be Catastrophic Or Fatal
Making a mistake with medications can be harmful to patients of any age, but it is especially dangerous when it happens to an older, more vulnerable person. Frequent types of medication errors include:
- Administering medications late
- Missing a medication or dose
- Giving double dosage at a later time
- Administering the wrong medicine
- Overmedicating patients
Understaffing or inexperience is no excuse for medication errors. We know how to determine what happened and hold the nursing home responsible. We have recovered compensation in many of these cases through settlements and verdicts.
