Nursing Home Medication Mistakes

Elderly people often seem to take significant amounts of medication. Because of the number of pills they take each day, following accepted protocols for dispensing medicines is critical. An incorrect dose or the wrong medicine can be fatal or cause a rapid decline in a loved one's condition.

When this type of mistake happens because of negligence and causes injury or illness to your loved one, you may be able to take legal action to correct the situation that allowed the error and obtain compensation for your loved one.
