Pain Infusion Overdose Attorneys
It is common when you are in the hospital to be administered a drug infusion pump, or more commonly known as a pain pump. These are electronic devices that deliver drugs or fluids, in very small amounts, at a regulated rate over a period of time.
When used for pain, the drugs are administered directly into the blood stream in the affected area for quick pain relief. Unfortunately these pumps are known to cause many issues and overdoses. If you are the victim of an overdose from these pumps, our Pennsylvania medication overdose lawyers can help.
Patients often have control of when the pain medication is administered as they are given a button to release a shot of medication when they feel necessary. It is the medical professionals’: doctors, nurses, home care givers, etc., job to ensure that the correct amount of medication is in the device so that patients are not over or under dosed during the time they are on the drug infusion device.
LOCAL PAIN PUMP OVERDOSES
In Allentown, PA a hospital was placed under extreme scrutiny after three of it’s patients overdosed as a result of pain infusion devices. The nurses administered too much pain medication into the device and failed to check it often enough to notice. The nurses at the hospital blamed lack of training on the devices and confusing instructions. As a result, the patients were given an excessive amount of pain medication in a small amount of time; one man even received 5 times the prescribed dosage.
THE CONSEQUENCES OF MEDICATION ERRORS ARE SEVERE
- bad reactions
- allergic reactions
