Congress probes nursing home abuse

Many people in New Mexico are deeply concerned about the threat of nursing home abuse or neglect, especially if their own loved ones are cared for in a facility. U.S. Congress is looking into the problem across the country after media attention has shed new light on the types of abuses that people can suffer inside nursing homes. In particular, a woman in a coma for 14 years gave birth at a nursing home, proving that she was subject to rape and sexual assault while in the facility.

Policy changes lead to lower fines for nursing homes

The White House has changed the way it is fining nursing home for violations. According to NPR, these changes have caused the average fine to drop to $28,405 from the average of $41,260 during President Obama’s last year in office. Some experts worry lower fines will mean nursing homes will have less reason to end practices that endanger nursing home residents.

Documenting a car crash as soon as it occurs

There are several steps that New Mexico car crash victims will want to take immediately after the incident, however shaken up they may be. Accurately documenting the collision can help the police write up their incident report and can clear the way for victims to file their insurance claims.

How to spot signs of nursing home neglect, abuse

New Mexico residents depend on nursing home staff to provide competent, professional care to their loved ones. However, it doesn't always turn out that way. Incidences of nursing home abuse and neglect are relatively common throughout the United States, and knowing the signs can help protect family members from serious harm.
