Medication Errors are Common and Costly
Seniors rely on their medications to keep them healthy, but complex medication schedules can lead to mistakes: missing doses, taking incorrect amounts, or taking medicines at the wrong times. These mistakes could lead to unnecessary doctor or hospital visits, illness and even death.
For seniors, approximately 1 out of 10 hospital admissions are the result of the incorrect use of medications.
Not taking medications correctly can have serious consequences, including increased discomfort, inadequate disease prevention and possibly even death.
