Nursing home neglect may have New Mexico residents thinking twice

Many New Mexico residents may hope to be able to care for their elderly relatives when those loved ones are no longer able to care for themselves. Unfortunately, some individuals may need more care than their family is able to provide. As a result, relatives may become residents of nursing homes. However, nursing home neglect could lead families to think about other options.

New Mexico family members can help stop elder abuse

Most Americans will live to be approximately 79 years of age. However, average life expectancies have been rising steadily since 1950. Ten years from now, the average lifespan for individuals living in New Mexico and the rest of the United States should be more than 80. With more elderly people in the Untied States, we must be on alert for any instances of elder abuse happening to the ones we love.

Does allowing kids at gun ranges increase risk of serious injury?

A recent fatal accident at a Southwest gun range has led to a great deal of debate among New Mexico residents as to the wisdom involved in allowing kids to shoot automatic weapons. The incident has been widely reported in the media and has sparked increased discussion on gun issues within a wider context. In light of this serious injury that led to death, many across the nation are wondering whether restrictions should be placed on the age of individuals who shoot these powerful weapons, even within a controlled environment.

Medical malpractice claims related to birth injury

Hospital administrators in New Mexico are under tight budgetary guidelines, and they are often searching for any way to cut costs and achieve more with less money. This cost-cutting kind of situation can have the disastrous effect on hospitals, and some see it as the institutions caring more about saving money than they do about saving lives. In situations where an accident occurs and a surgical doctor or hospital staff commit medical malpractice and/or surgical errors during the birth of a baby, the employing hospital may be liable for damages.
