Nashville Overmedication or Undermedication Lawyers
Nearly all nursing home residents depend on various medications to regulate their physical and/or mental conditions. Because of this dependency, accuracy in medication is essential for the overall health of residents. Unfortunately, reckless or negligent nursing home staff members all too often provide too much or too little medication, resulting in serious harm to innocent and unsuspecting residents.
Our attorneys at Pohl & Berk, LLP, know the dangers posed to Nashville nursing home residents due to overmedication and under-medication, and believe that victims of such mistreatment should not be the ones to shoulder the consequences. In fact, those nursing homes and residents who allow such abuse and neglect of residents should be held legally accountable for the repercussions their actions have.
Dangers of Overmedication or Undermedication
Overmedication or under-medication can lead to a number of serious side effects for nursing home residents. Sadly, some of the effects this type of oversight can cause include:
- Mental instability
- Delusions / paranoia
- Irregular / uncontrollable bodily functions
- Stomach illness / vomiting
- Internal organ damage
Sadly, many of these consequences of getting too much or too little medication is often exacerbated due to the fact that residents do not know what is going on or are unwilling to report the negligence when it occurs.
