Reasons for Drug Mistakes in Michigan Nursing Homes

Medication mistakes occur with alarming frequency in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Since many elderly 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, even death.

At Buckfire & Buckfire P.C, our attorneys have the most experience with helping people who have been injured in nursing homes. If your loved one has been injured or even died due to a medication mistake in a nursing home or long-term care facility, you can pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Protecting Your Loved One From Medication Mistakes

Some of the most common reasons why medication mistakes occur in a long term care facility include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Verbal order
  • Poor communication within the health care team
  • Poor handwriting
  • Improper drug selection
  • Missing medication
  • Incorrect scheduling
  • Polypharmacy
  • Drug interactions
  • Availability of floor stock (no second check)
  • Look alike or sound alike drugs
  • Hectic work environment
  • Lack of computer decision support

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 your family member has been injured or has died due to a medication mistake, contact our lawyers for a free and confidential case evaluation.
