Many nursing homes lack qualified social workers

Residents of nursing homes here in New Mexico rely on social workers to develop plans addressing their health needs, which can change quickly and often. Social workers help residents cope with severe mental and cognitive issues, such as depression and dementia, and can be important advocates for them and their families.

Elder care agencies fail to investigate complaints in time

Many nursing homes in New Mexico and across the U.S. are the subject of complaints regarding the quality of elder care. Residents of these homes may be neglected, abused or financially manipulated. The condition of many homes can even be unsanitary. One auditor in Massachusetts has found that many complaints linked to nursing homes are not being investigated as promptly as they should be.

Even one passenger can distract a teen driver

Teens driving on New Mexico roads and others throughout the country may have a harder time dealing with distractions. Therefore, it may not be a good idea for young drivers to have passengers in their vehicles. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), teen drivers have a 44% greater chance of getting into an accident when they aren't riding alone. Therefore, parents shouldn't rely on their newly licensed drivers to provide rides for their siblings.
