Patients of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are highly susceptible to errors in medication. Staff and health care providers are responsible to provide patients the right type and dosage of drugs. Mistakes can lead to serious complications, untreated illness and grave side effects, or even death. These mistakes can range from an over-prescribing, incorrect prescription or dosage to miscommunication between staff to an inaccurate dosage. Aging patients with poor vision may be unable to know that they are taking an incorrect drug or dosage. The results can be grave.
