We Get To The Bottom Of Medication Errors In Nursing Homes
Individuals who reside in a nursing home, assisted living facility or other medical care facility may be dependent on a number of medications to maintain their health and well-being. It is the responsibility of the doctors, nurses and other qualified staff members at that facility to ensure that each resident is getting the proper medication. When a medication error occurs, it may result in a life-threatening situation.
If you believe a loved one has suffered injuries or has unfortunately passed away due to a medication error, let us help. At the Cleveland law firm of Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we have more than 59 years of combined experience handling medication error cases and other nursing home injury cases that have occurred in facilities across the state of Ohio. We understand the sensitive nature of these types of cases, and handle drug mistake lawsuits with the respect and compassion they require.
Types Of Medication Errors
Medication errors can take many different forms, including:
- Incorrect medication
- Incorrect dosage of correct medication
- Medication not given when it has been prescribed
- Lethal dose of correct or incorrect medication
Regardless of the severity of the injuries that result from a medication error, it is important to take action on behalf of your loved one to ensure the error is not repeated. We have taken action against nursing homes and other facilities when medication errors have resulted in heart attacks, strokes, hypoxia (lack of oxygen), loss of consciousness (leading to falls), and loss of blood flow to limbs (leading to amputation), among others.
The lawyers at Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A. have also represented surviving family members in wrongful death lawsuits when a medication error or other situation has resulted in a fatality.
