Medication errors in a residential treatment center (RTC) can have profound consequences for the patients involved. Administering incorrect medications to those who are already vulnerable can result in serious injury, worsening conditions, or even death.

Medication errors may often be hard to litigate, due to the numerous parties involved who are responsible for the act. Some residential treatment centers may put the blame solely on the staff for the error – when in fact the majority of the blame may be placed on the RTC and its negligent practices. The RTC Lawyers has the experience to navigate the legal tactics of these companies, ensuring you have an opportunity to seek justice.

Medication Errors Are Caused by Negligence

Medication errors have the potential to be incredibly dangerous. Even minor medications such as ibuprofen can be fatal if incorrectly administered. In RTCs, medication errors may include:

  • Incorrect dosages of medications
  • Incorrect medications administered
  • No medications administered

When any of these occur, the consequences can include a rapid decline in the physical, mental, and emotional health of patients rehabilitating from serious ailments.

Who is Liable for Medication Errors?

Due to the medical nature of an RTC, many parties may be liable for medication errors.

  • The staff may be liable for their negligent actions in incorrectly administering medication.
  • The center in question may be liable for not having proper procedures in place to ensure medication errors do not occur.
  • The company owning the center may be liable for not giving the proper training necessary to ensure the center and staff do not make errors in medication.

At the RTC Lawyers, we pursue compensation from any responsible parties on your behalf to ensure you recover the maximum possible damages.
