image descriptionTreating for the elderly or handicapped requires great personal care and the type of dedicated attention that enables nursing home residents and rehabilitation center patients to receive proper medical attention. A large percentage of the elderly population in nursing homes depends on the services of medical professionals to treat their illness and the physical complications that come with old age. In turn, doctors and physicians may prescribe medications and dosages for individual nursing home residents. It may sometimes be the duty of nursing home staff members to provide the correct dosages and meet with medication schedules. Providing the wrong medication to the wrong patient at the wrong time can lead to serious health issues to nursing home residents that lack the ability to determine for themselves what medications they need to be taking and when. Improper handling of medications or negligence when administering prescribed pharmaceuticals to nursing home residents may cause personal injuries such as falls, stomach ailments, heart attacks, convulsions, overdose, and even wrongful death. 

The Personal Injury Attorneys at the Perazzo Law Firm that handle nursing home negligence and wrongdoing in Miami-Dade and Broward understand how the elderly can fall victim to under-staffing, poor facility infrastructure, maintenance, broken furniture, or medical equipment. Though it is difficult to determine fault in nursing home negligence claims for compensation through an insurance claim, an experienced and dedicated personal injury lawyer like Jonathan Perazzo will apply all possible resources for a successful result and full client satisfaction.

CORRECT ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION AND DOSAGE

A professional nursing home or rehabilitation center lawyer that best understands the risks behind improper administering of medications to treat illness or health conditions will be able to provide the right legal representation for accident and insurance claims for compensation for pain, suffering, or wrongful death. In nursing homes, the elderly may be undergoing medical treatment which involves a complex itinerary of drugs to a number of nursing home residents or rehabilitation patients. Negligence properly attending to each resident's or patient's itinerary may lead to physical or mental conditions that can end in suffering or wrongful death. A Miami lawyer from the Perazzo Law Firm will strive to provide the best legal counsel to determine fault by a nursing home and its staff, workers, or operators.
