Medication Errors

Medication errors are one of the fastest growing problems facing the elderly in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Many elderly individuals rely on prescription medications to regulate their health or treat medical conditions and, as a result, rely on nursing home staff to make sure they are receiving the correct medications and dosages.

We trust nursing homes to care for our aging family members because we believe they are equipped to make sure our loved ones are receiving proper care. It is understandably a crushing blow when we realize that these professionals have abused our trust and harmed our family members.

At Neustadt & Berriz, we seek full compensation for the victims of medication errors and other forms of nursing home negligence in Southern California. If you believe that a loved one has been harmed by a medication error, it is important to understand all of your options, including the possibility of pursuing a personal injury claim to recover damages.

Was It Negligence?

Most medication errors are entirely preventable and are the result of negligence. Examples include doctors writing prescriptions for medications that interact poorly with another medication the patient is taking, pharmacists filling the wrong dosage or wrong drug, and nursing home staff mixing up patient prescriptions.

If an individual or institution's negligence resulted in harm to your family member, they can be held liable for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and ongoing treatment.
