Medication Mistake at Annandale Care Center
Based on a preponderance of the evidence, neglect occurred when the facility failed to follow the resident’s physician order. The resident did not receive blood thinner (Coumadin) for 15 days and died as a result of complications.
Medication Error Leads to Hospitalization for Annandale Care Center Resident
A medication error for blood thinner was not provided for over two weeks and resident dies thereafter. This is a preventable error. Staff needs to be properly trained on medication administration and nursing must ensure the residents are receiving the medication.
