This was the 1st time I've used Zanes Law. It was a fantastic experience for having to go through a situation most would rather not. The attorney and staff were always available to answer my questions and explained things clearly and were obviously 100% in my corner. My attorney, Jim, was very genuine and made me immediately comfortable when I came in to speak with him about my case. Every case manager I dealt with was patient and helpful. I would definitely return to Zanes should the time ever come again that I need a personal injury firm.

car accident

Zanes Law was a terrific legal experience. I first went to a law firm that only wanted me to go to physical therapy and pad the bill, so they could utilize my insurance policy to its capacity. Once I went to Zanes, they were honest, professional and prompt with calls almost once a week. Sometimes I got a call just because we did not have contact for close to two weeks. Some calls were to just ask how I was doing. I also received more money than originally discussed. Great job Zanes Law!!!!! If need be I will use their services again. THANKS

Signs Of Polypharmacy To Look For Within The Nursing Home

If your loved one has experienced some of the above symptoms, but you are not sure that polypharmacy caused them, consider signs within the nursing home that this practice is occurring.

Some possible red flags include:

  • Sudden changes in new meds or dosages
  • New diagnoses
  • New prescriptions
  • Swift, severe reactions to meds
  • Drugs administered by RNs
  • Drugs administered by non-medical, unsupervised staff
  • Observations of inferior communications among staff
  • Conflicts on prescription labels

Arizona Nursing Home Law

Arizona’s laws on nursing homes require that nursing home managers have procedures in place for preventing, responding to, and reporting medication mistakes as well as unexpected reactions to drugs.

The law further requires that a medical practitioner reviews each nursing home resident’s medication regimen and method of administration. The facility’s manager should also ensure that medication is administered.

  • Under the direction of a medical practitioner
  • In a manner compliant with the medication order
  • With complete documentation in the resident’s medical record

When an Arizona nursing home neglects to uphold the above safety measures, as mandated by law, you can hold the facility and/or its staff liable for the damages that result. Zanes Law will represent you in this legal action, and a polypharmacy lawyer in Phoenix, AZ will do so aggressively to get the results you deserve.

Other Ways In Which A Nursing Home Can Be Negligent With Polypharmacy

When we admit our loved ones into a nursing home, we do so with the expectation that the staff is trained, capable, and willing to do what is required to keep their residents safe.

We expect the following:

  • The staff keeps residents on schedule with their medications
  • The staff does not mix up medications
  • The staff has a firm grasp of the drugs and their effects
  • The staff can clearly distinguish the effects of a medication from some other condition

A failure to uphold these expectations constitutes negligence, as the nursing home has breached a duty of care to its residents. In these cases, the nursing home staff may exhibit their negligence by:

  • Giving residents the wrong medication
  • Not giving residents their medication
    Giving residents their medication at the wrong time
  • Incorrectly assessing the resident’s condition—or not doing it at all
  • Not recording prescriptions on the resident’s medication record
  • Not reviewing the resident’s medication record before issuing a new prescription
  • Not assessing the resident for signs or symptoms of error in medication

When residents suffer some harm as a result of this breach of duty, the staff and/or the nursing home can be held liable for this suffering.

The nursing home, in particular, is responsible for the proper training of staff, a lack of which can result in mistakes being made. Errors also occur when a facility is understaffed or when staff is not supervised—both of which constitute negligence on the part of the nursing home.
