Nursing Home Abuse and Overmedication of Nursing Home Residents

The proper administration of medication is a life or death situation for elderly patients. Unfortunately, too many times a nursing staff fails to give the right dose, right medication or even intentionally overmedicates the patient. Overmedication is common in patients who require high levels of care, such as Alzheimer's or dementia patients. Nursing staff will intentionally overmedicate the patient with antipsychotic drugs in order to keep him or her in a practically comatose state to easily manage. Some patients are even overmedicated and tied down. This is negligent behavior and can lead to serious injury to the patient. Repeated overmedication can lead to serious health and mental complications.

If you believe your elderly loved one is being overmedicated, we can help you. We will investigate your case and seek maximum compensation for damages suffered.
