Missing the Diagnosis of Cancer in Encinitas CA

The early and accurate diagnosis of cancer can have a significant impact on the outcome of a patient's life. Timeliness in correctly identifying the specific form of cancer and implementing the best treatment possible can make all the difference between a successful recovery, remission of the cancer, or a wrongful death. If a doctor, radiologist or facility has missed a diagnosis due to negligence citizens of Encinitas and North County may have a valid medical malpractice claim. A bad outcome isn't usually the result of negligence or malpractice, but even the best medical practitioners can have a bad day. If you are concerned about what has happened in your own case or that of a loved one we invite you to contact for a free consultation to discuss what has happened, and how we can help.

Study: A third of nursing homes may not meet basic care standards

"Once you're in a nursing home, if things don't go right, you're really a prisoner." That truth was recently pointed out by a woman with relatives in two nursing homes, prompted by a report just released by the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General. The report looked at sample patient records from nursing homes in 42 states and estimates that Medicare pays billions of dollars a year for nursing homes that don't meet the federal standard for reasonable care.
