Nursing Home Medication Errors

Charleston Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Protecting the Elderly

When a loved one is entrusted to the care of a nursing home, it is expected that the nursing home will properly care for the health of its residents. When the nursing home staff fails to fulfill that obligation, elderly patients can be seriously harmed by medical errors.

The nursing home medication error lawyers at Pierce | Sloan can effectively handle your claim against the nursing home facility. Call our law firm or fill out a free case evaluation to discuss a incident of medication error at a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Medication Errors Cause Health Complications

After an illness or injury where medication is prescribed to remedy the ailment, it is expected that nursing home staff will appropriately disburse the medication. That doesn’t always happen though.

Serious side effects can occur as a result of medication errors and negligence, such as:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Skin irritation and rash
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wrongful death

Our nursing home abuse attorneys have experience holding nursing home facilities accountable for their negligent or intentional errors. When you contact our Charleston nursing home abuse lawyers at Pierce | Sloan, we can move quickly to investigate the cause of the medication error by reviewing patient charts, prescription documentation, and previous safety violations. It is important that you get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Failure to Screen Nursing Home Employees

We also have experience holding nursing homes responsible for negligent hiring, training, and / or supervision. If the staff member who gave improper medication was not qualified for the job or had a criminal record or professional license violation, we may be able to hold the nursing home responsible for a failure to screen employees. Discuss this option with your attorney.
