Sedatives are often given to the elderly to calm them, prevent complaints, or make them more agreeable.

Because many elderly residents often take multiple medications at the same time, it is extremely important that when sedatives are given to residents, nursing home or assisted living facility staff carefully monitor the amount used and that they are aware of potential adverse reactions caused by the sedatives. Failure to document and monitor all drugs administered to elderly residents may lead to adverse drug interactions that can result in permanent injuries or even death.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of improper sedation, the nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospital may be held accountable. Our attorneys have experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by nursing home, assisted living facility, and hospital neglect. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
