As we age, our medical needs often become increasingly complex and require professional assistance. This is one of the biggest reasons individuals are admitted to nursing home or hospice facilities. As we help our loved one enter a nursing home or hospice facility, we believe the facility will provide medical support and treatment.
Unfortunately, many nursing home and hospice facilities fall short of expectations, resulting in medical mismanagement. Some of the most common types of medical mismanagement with nursing homes and hospice facilities include:
- Medication omission or under dosage
- Medication overdose
- Providing expired or old medication
- Using the incorrect medical product, product form, or product strength to treat a condition
- Incorrect medication dosage timing or technique
- Lab errors
- Malfunctioning medical equipment
Patients involved in medical mismanagement incidents as a result of negligence or abuse at a nursing home or hospice may be eligible for compensation for; medical bills, physical, psychological, and emotional injuries.
What to do when a medical mismanagement incident occurs?
If you, or your loved one, is involved in a medical mismanagement incident at a nursing home or hospice facility, take immediate action to rectify the situation. Ensure you, or your loved one, receive proper medical treatment. Do not hesitate to remove your loved one from the facility.
Be sure to document any injuries caused by medical mismanagement with photographs, witness statements and medical records as applicable.
