Medication Mistakes & Wrong Dosage | Michigan Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Our experienced Michigan medication mistake and wrong dosage attorneys handle cases for victims of malpractice against doctors, hospitals, and clinics. A recent study states that 44,000 – 98,000 deaths annually occur due to medication mistakes. These mistakes are serious and are “avoidable” medical errors. If a doctor makes a mistake when prescribing a medication or there is a medical mistake due to the medication prescribed, you may have means for a medical malpractice lawsuit. We represent patients and family members who suffer serious and fatal injuries due to medication mistakes and errors caused by nursing home neglect.
Misadministration of medicine and medication mistakes is a frequent and serious problem at nursing homes. Residents are given the wrong medication or not given the medication in the dosage or frequency as required by the physician’s order. Often this happens due to the carelessness of the staff, lack of supervision of the nurses administering the medications or not having enough properly trained and supervised staff to administer the medications.
Studies have shown delayed or missed treatment of medication and the administration of the wrong dose or the wrong medication are the two most common medical mistakes made in the hospital setting. Studies also show that nursing home medication error occurrences are widely under reported. It is estimated that only 1.5% of all medication errors are actually reported.
