Nursing home violations now reported this online website

People in New Mexico who are researching nursing homes for their loved ones will soon have an easier way to learn about violations related to abuse, neglect or exploitation. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is in the process of updating Nursing Home Compare's website to include an icon next to facilities with reported violations. This website tracks performance for all U.S. nursing homes certified to collect Medicare or Medicaid benefits.

IIHS study links road death surge with higher speed limits

New Mexico is one of 41 states that has increased speed limits since the 55 mph nationwide maximum speed was abolished in 1993. Drivers in the state can now travel at 75 mph on highways without worrying about a ticket, but increased speeds mean increased dangers. After studying traffic fatalities between 1993 and 2017, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety concluded that road deaths rise by 8.5% for every 5 mph increase in speed limits.

Nursing home abuse shared on social media

When loved ones can no longer care for themselves, New Mexico residents have to make tough decisions. Providing that care personally or through an in-home service is often not affordable or feasible. This leaves only one option for many: a facility for long-term care. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is a reality, and family members need to take steps to prevent it and recognize the signs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported an astounding 500% increase in fatal car crashes stemming from aggressive driving. While in 2006 there were 80 such crashes, there were 467 in 2015. Many drivers in New Mexico have probably encountered an aggressive driver, or perhaps they have fallen into a fit of road rage themselves.
