Medication Error Injury Attorneys
Hospital and nursing home patients rely on nurses to accurately administer the medication prescribed by the doctor, and it can mean the difference between life and death. In order to ensure patient safety, nurses are taught to follow the Five R's or Five Rights of medication administration:
- Is this the RIGHT patient?
- Is this the RIGHT dose?
- Is this the RIGHT time for the medication to be given?
- Is this the RIGHT route (i.e, tablet, via feeding tube, injection)?
- Is this the RIGHT medication?
Despite these simple rules, at least 1.5 million people per year are harmed by medication errors according to the Institute of Medicine. The injuries can be serious and disabling or can even result in death.
