Nursing homes were in the past restricted to the provision basis health care to the elderly and the young one who may be under their responsibility. This may have been due to the difficulties that are associated with running a medical institution. Today, it is possible to come across some nursing homes that have stuck to the old fashion way of operating by continuing to run without their won medical institution. But, the story is different today among many nursing homes. Nowadays, nursing homes can now have medical institutions of their own for as long as they have the capacity that is required to run them. As such, they are also liable to suffer various medical negligence claims including surgical error claims as well as cancer misdiagnosis negligence claims. All such claims can fall under nursing home negligence claims if the medical institution that was responsible for the error is run and operated by a nursing home. Here are some of the examples of cancer misdiagnosis negligence claims that are filed as nursing home negligence claims.
