Determine Who Is Responsible for Your Loved One’s Medication Error
Among the essential responsibilities of a nursing home caregiver is ensuring patients and residents receive the right medications at the right times and in the right quantities. If they err on any of these variables, the results could be disastrous – even deadly.
The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology describes the process of prescribing fault when someone makes a medication error. If your loved one was injured or lost their life because of a medication error, the fault could fall on multiple parties, and none of them would be your loved one.
First of all, a nursing home resident should never have access to their own medicine. It should always be administered by a caregiver who can monitor the process and dispense the proper quantity. The caregiver must see to it that whenever your loved one takes their medicine, your loved one must also take it correctly.
In addition to the caregiver, other parties who may be held liable for your loved one’s injury or death include:
- The caregiver’s manager or supervisor
- The facility director
- The facility itself
You May Receive Damages and Compensation for Medication Error Injuries
An injury or illness caused by a medication error can lead to a number of economic and noneconomic damages. In Florida, you may recover compensation for both types, and the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may be able to help you pursue a monetary award package that pays you what you need to recover your losses. For more information, call our law firm at 1-800-747-3733.
Compensation packages may include money for:
- Treating your loved one’s condition
- Transferring your loved one to a different nursing home
- Covering the cost of therapy and rehabilitation
- Compensating both you and your loved one for pain and suffering
- Covering funeral and burial costs in the event of a wrongful death
- And potentially more if you qualify
