Medication errors can cause serious harm to elders

If your loved one is in a nursing home or assisted living facility, caregivers are responsible for administering required medications, and you trust them to do that correctly. However, mistakes happen, and although hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities are quick to advertise the safety features they have in place, they do not provide specific information about harm caused to patients due to medical mistakes. However, you can help reduce the chance of medication errors by taking an active role in the care of your elderly family member.
