Lexington Nursing Home Medication Negligence Attorneys

If a nursing home uses medication to subdue a resident or makes errors with prescription medications, the results can be fatal. If your loved one’s nursing home has caused them injury or illness due to overmedication or medication errors, Ross Mann Law PLLC, can help you.

We handle nursing home abuse claims in Lexington, Louisville and the surrounding communities. Our team of medication error attorneys has handled more than 1,000 elder abuse claims and recovered millions of dollars for our clients.

Why Nursing Home Medication Mistakes Happen

Most nursing homes do not have doctors on-site. The law does not require nurses to administer medication. As a result, care attendants without medical training regularly administer prescription medications and make terrible errors while doing so.

Successfully managing a prescription medication claim is not easy. You need attorneys who can prove that a medication error caused someone injury and that, as a result, they have damages. Our team has experience handling complex medical malpractice claims as well as elder abuse cases. We prepare for litigation, and we do not settle for less than what you deserve.

Overmedication In Nursing Homes

Some forms of medication negligence are not accidental. The deliberate overmedication of a patient is also known as chemical restraint. It is an abusive method that nursing homes sometimes use to sedate a disruptive patient. It is not only incredibly dangerous but also against Kentucky and federal laws to administer psychotropic medication without the patient’s informed consent.
