When a doctor or other medical professional fails to suspend your or a loved one’s medication when the time is appropriate to do so, severe side effects can result. You may be eligible for compensation for  

  • medical costs;
  • pain and suffering; and
  • lost wages through a medical malpractice suit. 

When a Failure to Suspend Medication Error is most likely to Occur

A medication suspension error can occur at any time, and the mistake can happen anywhere in the chain of drug distribution, be it

  • at the diagnostic stage;
  • in the administration of the drug;
  • at the pharmacy; and
  • even in the labeling of the drug.  

Whatever the circumstances of the error are, the consequences can often be quite serious for patients and their families. There are certain instances in which a change of medication is traditionally expected and as such, instances in which the likelihood of a failure to suspend error is also increased.

The following conditions generally call for some sort of modification or suspension of medication treatment: 

  • preparation for, during, or shortly after, a surgery (even a minor operation);
  • during pregnancy or while breastfeeding;
  • in the case of severe side effects to a currently prescribed drug or treatment; and
  • in the event of the onset of new symptoms or a new condition.

Contact a Louisville medical neglect lawyer who can investigate the facts of the negligence that impacted you and mount a compelling, demonstrative case that conveys those facts in a meaningful way.
