Minnesota Memory Care Medication Errors
Attorney Kenneth LaBore is an experienced litigator and elder abuse medication errors lawyer. Memory Care medication errors are usually not only considered personal injury or negligence claims they are also medical malpractices pursuant to Minnesota Statute 145.682, cases which require expert witness support for allegations of breach in the standard of care and how the mistake caused injury. Medication mistake cases can also be wrongful death cases under Minnesota Statute 573.01, which require evidence on cause of death, life expectancy and damages to the surviving next-of-kin.
Types of Medication Errors
I have seen many types of medication errors and mistakes that have lead to injury, hospitalization and even death. Some medication mistakes occur without long term negative effect but they may have been meant for pain relief or to assist with sleeping or some other condition and the resident had to suffer without. Other memory care and senior care facility medication errors are very serious. There is a mistake which fails to give life supporting medication or high risk prevention medications such as blood thinners and the lack of the medication leads to a complication or condition requiring emergency medical attention. Some mistakes involve giving the wrong medication to resident which result in injury or death.
