Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Prescription And Medication Errors

Most nursing home residents enter a facility with prescriptions for many different issues prescribed from multiple physicians. The fact is, many senior citizens have vision problems and cannot check their own prescriptions. Others do not want to complain and will take the drugs they are given.

It is important to realize that federal and state laws mandate detailed and specific record keeping regarding the on-time distribution of medication to patients given at the correct intervals.

Because of the number of doses, documentation requirements and administrative procedures, medication errors are all too common. When there is a medication error, the results can be injurious or in a worst-case scenario, deadly. If a loved one has been injured in a nursing home due to what you believe was prescription or medication error, it is important to inform yourself of your rights and obtain accountability. A skilled legal team is an ideal asset in this pursuit.
