Parents and grandparents deserve the best treatment when they get older. Unfortunately, a very common problem in nursing homes and hospitals is errors in medication administration. Getting a patient’s medication wrong puts them at risk of injury or even death.
If an error regarding medication is being investigated in a nursing home or hospital, inspectors for the state will need to first identify the medication error rate of that specific facility. Each facility needs to remain below an acceptable percentage of medication errors to stay in business.
If the error rate goes above the legal standard, the facility will need to take steps to correct the cause of these errors.
