Medication Errors Are A Sign Of Abuse And Neglect
For many nursing home and assisted living residents, their prescription drugs can make all the difference in their quality of life. Not being given the correct medication or the proper dosage in a timely fashion can even mean the difference between life and death.

Factors Leading To Medication Errors
A number of factors go into most prescription medication error cases, among them:
- Failure to provide medication
- Understaffed nursing homes
- Lack of proper employee training
- A basic lack of caring for patients
As with all instances of nursing home abuse and neglect, there is no excuse for patients to suffer as a result of medication errors. Instructions are clearly given regarding each prescription and it is the responsibility of the nursing home and its staff to ensure that patients receive the appropriate drugs at the appropriate times in the appropriate doses.
