Medication Errors

Was Your Loved One Given the Wrong Medication?

Medication errors can be one of the most dangerous instances of medical malpractice, especially when the patient is already dealing with a serious illness and/or ailment. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), an estimated 7,000 people die from medication errors every single year. This issue can be particularly dangerous in nursing homes where many of the patients are already dealing with a weakened immune system and any number of other ailments. If your loved one suffered serious harm because of a medication error, it may be in your best interest to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
