Medication errors occur with alarming frequency in nursing homes. Since many seniors take drugs for chronic conditions on a daily basis, mistakes can be repeated for weeks or months, leading to serious injury and, in some cases, death.
At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience helping people who have been injured in nursing homes. If your loved one has been injured due to a medication error in a nursing home or long-term care facility, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. We serve clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, as well as Greater New York.
Protecting Our Most Vulnerable Citizens From Drug Errors
Some of the most common drug errors in nursing homes include:
- Dispensing the wrong medication
- Dispensing the wrong dose of a medication
- Crushing pills that are designed to be swallowed whole
- Excessive use of drugs to make residents more docile
- Dispensing dangerous drug combinations
Many senior citizens have vision problems and are unable to check their own prescriptions. Others are hesitant to complain and simply take the drugs they are given. As a result, prescription drug errors can go unchecked. If you or a family member has been injured or has died due to a medication error, contact our lawyers for a free and confidential case evaluation. Our nursing home injury law firm has obtained tens of millions of dollars in compensation for our severely injured clients.
