There Is No Excuse for Prescription Errors in a Nursing Home
Every resident in a nursing home is required to have a medication plan on file and updated with each new prescription. Nursing home managers are required by law to ensure that staff members are properly trained and qualified to administer prescription medications and medical treatment in strict accordance with the plan. There is no excuse for missing medication times, improper doses or mixing up prescriptions with another resident.
