Medication administration must be handled safely

There isn't any reason why patients should think that they have to do a nurse's or doctor's job. However, when it comes to medication administration, patients can do their part to make sure they are getting their correct dosages.

You can check the way the medication looks, ask questions about why you are getting the medications you are and have a nurse or doctor read out the dosage instructions to you. It might seem excessive to you that you have to do this, but your life is worth it.

We understand that when something does happen and you get the incorrect medication or dosage, you might suffer negative health effects. In these cases, you might decide that you are going to seek compensation for the error and the damage it caused. This is done through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

One thing that you have to remember is that these cases usually involve a lot of investigating. We can review your case and look for weak points in the medication administration process that might have contributed to the issue that you are facing. We want you to be informed at each step of the process, so we will make sure you are actively involved in the case.

We will need to determine the depth of damages that you are dealing with because of the medication error. This can mean the medical issues, as well as the social, family and career issues. Some of the questions that we will consider include:

  • Did you have to take time off of work?
  • Did the error mean you needed invasive medical treatment?
  • Were you hospitalized because of the error's effects?
  • How has your family life changed?
  • Have your abilities changed?

Once we have these answers, we can proceed with putting your case together. Due to the time limits that apply to these cases, we have to work swiftly to get the necessary documentation all together and the lawsuit filed.
