Examples of Medication Errors: Pharmacy Errors, Doctors’ Errors, Nursing Errors
Medication errors can occur at every level of nursing home care. The law office of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman represents clients in regard to all types of prescription mistakes:
- Filling the wrong prescription
- Misdiagnosing the condition leading to prescription error
- Prescribing too high of dosage
- Giving the incorrect dosage
- Mixing up residents’ medications
- Failing to give the medication with food or water
- Mixing medications leading to serious side effects
- Failing to warn residents of the side effects
We offer strong, compassionate representation when these errors have harmed – or killed – your loved one. It is not enough for the nursing home to explain the matter away. We negotiate with the insurance company for the highest compensation possible, and if they do not give us what you deserve, we will take them to court. There is simply no excuse for negligent care in a nursing home.
