Why Do Medication Errors Occur in Nursing Homes?

Unfortunately, many nursing homes fail to provide their residents with the medications they require.

This may result from a variety of causes, including but not limited to:

  • Inexperienced or overworked staff members
  • Errors in your loved one's medical records
  • A staff member's failure to verify your loved one's prescription

Regardless of the cause, nursing home medication errors can lead to serious injury or death, either from the improperly dispensed medication or from the failure to provide the correct medication. The important thing is to know what you can do to protect your loved one’s rights. An attorney can help you. The Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights outlines the rights of patients in Ohio nursing homes. Our firm is familiar with these rights and how to protect you.
