Pharmaceutical mistakes

 

Improper use or prescription of these drugs can cause significant damage. Negligent care, clerical oversight, and corporate greed are sometimes behind these mistakes. Some cause injury while others lead to wrongful death. Trust our dedicated attorneys to help you with your losses. Mistakes happen for many reasons, including:

 

• Mistakes at diagnosis, such as the wrong medication being prescribed or drug interactions not taken into consideration

• Written prescription mistakes, such as hard-to-read prescriptions or pharmacy misinterpretations

• Medication instruction mistakes, such as not providing the proper dosing or effective amount

 

Drug errors can cause long-term effects. In the U.S., an estimated 100,000 Americans die each year from adverse reactions to drugs. This doesn't include patients making mistakes while taking them. If you've suffered loss or complications related to pharmaceutical negligence, contact our attorneys.

 

Nursing home abuse

 

An assisted care facility promises to provide a stable, healthy environment for those using the facility. Many residents, however, receive poor care. In some cases, negligence occurs leading to long-term damage to the health or well-being of the patient. In some cases, this may even lead to death.

 

The causes of nursing home negligence are numerous, and can include:

 

• Misdiagnosis/failure to diagnose

• Medication mismanagement

• Failure to take measures to prevent falls

• Improper prescribing

• Failure to respond to call lights or emergency alerts

• Insufficient training of nurses and medical staff

• Failure to ensure compliance with procedures designed to enhance patient safety and care

• Failure to prevent infections and poor infection management

• Improper maintenance of medical equipment/malfunctioning medical devices

• Failure to assist in personal hygiene

• Insufficient sanitation

• Failure to turn patients in their beds

• Failing to adequately monitor patients

• Failure to help patients to the restroom

• Failure to take sufficient precautions to prevent patient injury

• Failure to contact emergency medical help in a timely manner

 

When these types of incidents happen, the results can be numerous, including:

 

• Bedsores

• Injuries resulting from falling

• Malnutrition

• Fractures

• Medication injuries

• Head trauma

• Infections

• Gangrene

• Abdominal injuries

• Dehydration

• Weight loss

• Burns

• Preventable accidents

• Ulcers

• Untreated illness progression

• Death

 

In many instances, negligence is the sole cause of your loved one's health concerns. In other cases, nursing home abuse takes place. Abuse or mistreatment is a growing problem. A 2001 federal study found that 30 percent of nursing homes in the U. S. were cited for abuse between 1999 and 2001. These abuses may include:

 

• Physical abuse: Inflicting physical pain or injury on a nursing home resident or depriving them of a basic need.

• Emotional abuse: Inflicting mental or emotional anguish or distress on a resident.

• Sexual abuse: Non-consensual sexual contact of any kind or coercing a resident to witness sexual behaviors.

• Neglect: Failure by caretakers to provide food, shelter, medical care or protection to a resident.

• Abandonment: The desertion of residents by caretakers who have assumed responsibility for their custody.

• Exploitation/Financial Abuse: Inappropriate handling or stealing of seniors’ personal finances.

 

Let us aggressively fight to protect the rights of your loved ones if you suspect abuse. We'll handle the investigation in every instance.

 

Hospital medical mistakes

 

It is estimated that 1 out of 10 hospitals patients are affected by an adverse event during their hospital stay, which is any type of injury to a patient that is the result of medical intervention. Many of these are preventable. Some hospital errors include:

 

• Emergency room errors

• Amputation errors

• Anesthesia errors

• Birth injuries

• Lab errors

• Limb loss resulting from negligence

• Medication errors

• Radiology errors

• Spinal cord injuries

• Surgical errors

• Falls resulting from negligence

• Bedsores that result from negligence

• Wrongful death

 

When mistakes like these happen, the results can have a long-lasting impact on the well being of the patient. Mistakes can lead to:

 

• Failure to take reasonable steps to prevent falls

• Failure to respond to call lights or emergency alerts

• Improper prescribing

• Failure to assist in personal hygiene and routine cleanliness

• Failure to turn patients in their beds

• Failure to help patients to the restroom

• Failure to provide standard medical care

• Failure to take sufficient precautions to prevent patient injury

• Failure to call higher-level staff in a timely manner

 

Hospital errors are common. That's unfortunate. However, you do not have to suffer the long term repercussions from these types of incidents. Talk to our dedicated attorneys today about your case and let us further investigate the cause.
