Extended Care Medication Mistakes

Protecting the rights of injury victims throughout Ohio

As the number of prescription drugs continues to grow, we have cures and treatments for many diseases and ailments that used to cause considerable pain or even death. Using the drugs, however, is not foolproof. Accidents happen, mistakes are made, and nursing home residents can be injured or even killed by receiving the wrong dose or the wrong drug.

Finding answers after a medication error

Medication errors include more than just receiving the wrong drug or the wrong dose. Someone could be allergic to a medicine or it could react to another drug the person is taking, with potentially devastating results. However, all these things are preventable. Doctors and pharmacists should ensure that prescribed medication does not negatively react with any drugs or conditions the person has, and nursing home staff needs to be very attentive when dealing with residents' medications. A simple math error or grabbing the wrong bottle could prove deadly.

After a nursing home medication error in Cincinnati, many people look for answers. Elk & Elk investigates to determine how the mistake occurred and whether it was preventable. By holding people responsible for their negligent behavior, we hope to decrease medication mistakes and nursing home neglect.
