Reputation for Results in Cases of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

  • Under-medication — the dispensing of insufficient pain medication that leaves patients in physical and emotional distress
  • Failure to properly administer a drug that should be taken with or without food could cancel the effects of certain medications
  • Failure to respond to drug side effects that can be life-threatening
  • Failure to monitor a resident and respond to changing conditions
  • Failure to check for drug interactions when multiple medications are prescribed by more than one physician
