Elder Overdose in Nursing Homes

Passionately Representing Those in Need of Advocacy

As our loved ones age, caring for them becomes harder and harder to do. As a result, many people often send their elderly loved ones to nursing homes in the hopes that they will be well taken-care of. We never expect our elderly loved ones to experience any form of discomfort or abuse while in the care of a medical professional, but these cases happen more often than many would like to believe. At Jordan Law Center, our personal injury lawyer has helped countless clients find the retribution they deserve following nursing home abuse.

Overdose is a very common form of nursing home abuse, as it is done so in a malignant and purposeful manner. While there are instances in which a medical professional accidently gives a patient a double dose, some of these occurrences are led with a far more negative intent. This is done in certain cases to keep a patient sedated and thus less of an obligation, especially if they feel the resident is particularly needy, disruptive, or unruly.

The following are signs to look out for if you fear your elderly loved one has been abused in the form of overmedication or overdose:

  • Fatigue and exhaustion, more so than normal
  • Disorientations
  • Unexpected medical complications
  • Oversleeping
  • Lack of appetite
  • Dehydration
