Serious injury to the brain to be studied at new center

Over two million visits to the emergency room, along with hospitalizations and deaths, occur every year as a result of brain injury throughout the United States, including in New Mexico. Serious injury to the brain remains one of the most critical medical issues today, but it also continues to be an enigmatic one. However, in another state, a sports arena will serve as the new home for a center that will focus on the study of the brain and the nervous system.

Nursing home neglect suit filed after man breaks neck, dies

A woman recently filed a lawsuit against a nursing home in another state after her husband died in the nursing home's care. The nursing home is also facing a government fine that is six figures. When a person in New Mexico has lost his or her life due to nursing home neglect, the surviving family members have the right to take legal action.

Brain injury in young children may stem from serious accident

Sometimes head injuries in young children result from serious accidents in New Mexico. For example, a serious accident involving cars may occur on a highway, or an accident could take place due to faulty equipment on a playground. The traumatic brain injury that occurs as a result may go undiagnosed for a while but can result in learning issues that manifest themselves later.

Nursing home neglect allegedly due in part to understaffing

A nursing home in another state was recently investigated after the state's department of health and welfare received three complaints concerning understaffing, mistreatment and neglect at the facility. The issues discovered at the facility were reportedly so serious that the facility has stopped taking new Medicare and Medicaid patients. When residents of nursing homes in New Mexico experience nursing home neglect, it is within their rights to take legal actions through the civil court system.
