Nursing home cases in Florida may be like other medical malpractice claims, or they may be another type of claim altogether, depending on what was done wrong, and by whom. A claim involving mismanagement of the patient’s medical condition involving the nursing home medical director, nurses, or other health care providers may be a medical malpractice claim and may have to follow all medical malpractice claims procedures. On the other hand, many states have adopted special procedures and remedies for nursing home problems and have even adopted a special “bill of rights” for nursing home residents.

It is important for us and our clients that we bring the right cases to help us improve in overall patient safety. We strive to make hospitals and doctors offices in Florida safer places for patients and family alike.
