Medical malpractice in nursing homes

The Chief of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School has recently published an article addressing the growing concerns about medication safety in nursing homes. Unfortunately, medical malpractice involving pharmaceutical errors is particularly prevalent among this vulnerable population of individuals currently residing at long-term care facilities in Massachusetts and across the country.

Massachusetts legislation to improve nursing home care
