Overmedicating Nursing Home Patients

Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Washington

Overmedication occurs when a patient takes unnecessary medication or more of a medication than what is required by a doctor. Some nursing homes resort to overmedicating elderly patients in order to better manage them. This is a dangerous practice and an obvious sign of neglect and abuse. Overmedication is also considered a form of improper chemical restraint and it is prohibited by federal law.

If you have reason to believe that your loved one is being overmedicated, don't hesitate to discuss your concerns with our Washington nursing home abuse attorneys at Schroeter Goldmark & Bender. We can answer all of your questions and offer you advice on what you should do next. Our team understands how frustrating it is to learn of your loved one's abuse, but we are here to stand by you every step of the way.
