Elder Abuse – Los Angeles, CA

Stopping Neglect or Abuse
of Vulnerable Patients

It is estimated that for every reported case of elder abuse, at least five more go unidentified and unreported. Unfortunately, elder abuse is something that pharmacy professionals must pay attention to, especially in California, where by law pharmacists are considered “mandatory reporters.” We can help you recognize when medications are being misused or when an elderly patient is being under or overmedicated or abused through conversations with the caregiver or patient, records of filled or neglected prescriptions, and other methods.
