My father is in a nursing home and has been in the same one since 1/06. This past week he received the wrong medication which caused him to go into a comma and be hospitallized for one week. The medication he was to receive was heparin instead he got insulin. He is now in a different nursing home and it looks like he will make a full recovery. When I went to pick up his belongings at the original Nursing Home I found the nurse who made the mistake still working there. This was very disturbing to see. I spoke with the Nursing Director who really had no answers. I would like to report the home and the nurse to the State. I also would like to know if this is worth persuing a lawyer just so the nurse and home are responsible for the mistake. Anyone have any ideas?
