Overmedication of the Aging is a Common Problem

One of the specializations of McKeen & Associates is pursuing medical negligence cases against health workers who prescribe too much medication, especially to the aging population.

"Polypharmacy" ("poly" meaning many, "pharmacy" meaning drugs) is a term that describes a patient who is prescribed multiple medications by one or more health workers. As patients age, reaching their 60's and beyond, polypharmacy is increasingly common and poses a significant risk of illness and death to patient. These patients may experience adverse interactions between multiple medications such as decreased functional status, cognitive impairment, falls, urinary incontinence, alteration in fluid and nutritional status and death. If you suspect that you, a friend or family member have been injured due to polypharmacy, contact McKeen & Associates, PC for a free case evaluation.
