My Mom is in her late 80s and stays in her own suite in a retirement home and during the day she is independent. However at night she gets confused and therefore stays in the clinic section of the retirement home where she is monitored by qualified nursing sisters or staff nurses. The charge for the overnight stay in the clinic is added to her monthly account. As she is being looked after by qualified nurses at night can she claim this amount as an out of pocket medical expense?

Yes she can, this will most certainly add to the out of pocket medical expenditures claim.
