Medication Administration Errors

San Diego Medication Error Lawyer

Medication administration errors can have devastating consequences for elderly individuals, especially those residing in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. This page aims to shed light on the prevalence of medication errors in elder care settings and the legal recourse available for victims of such negligence.

These errors typically occur when medications are improperly prescribed, dispensed, or administered, leading to adverse effects on the patient's health. These errors can include giving the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, missed doses, or drug interactions, among others. Elderly individuals are particularly vulnerable to medication errors due to age-related changes in metabolism, multiple chronic conditions, and polypharmacy (taking multiple medications).

Medication errors in nursing homes can take various forms, including administering the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, missed doses, administration of expired medications, drug interactions, and failure to monitor for adverse effects. These errors can result from negligence, lack of communication among staff, inadequate documentation, or improper storage of medications.

Consequences of Medication Errors in Elder Care

The consequences of medication errors in elder care settings can be severe and may result in serious health complications, hospitalization, or even death. Elderly individuals may suffer from adverse drug reactions, worsening of existing health conditions, falls, cognitive decline, or organ damage due to medication errors. Additionally, medication errors can erode trust in the healthcare system and compromise the quality of life for affected individuals and their families.

Identifying Medication Administration Errors

Identifying medication administration errors in elder care settings can be challenging, as many elderly individuals may not be able to communicate or recognize the signs of medication errors. Family members and caregivers should be vigilant for signs such as unexplained changes in behavior, confusion, drowsiness, falls, or unexpected health declines. It's essential to document any observed medication errors and report them to the appropriate authorities.
