Nursing home neglect may also be the result of staffing issues

When a family chooses to entrust a care facility with the health of a loved one, a certain standard of treatment is often expected. Patients in New Mexico and across the country who reside in similar facilities often have pre-existing medical conditions that can deteriorate severely if they are not given the proper care. Nursing home neglect is a serious issue, and many patients have suffered serious injuries or worse under similar circumstances.

Identifying signs of elder abuse and guidance on how to proceed

Neglect and abuse are often a significant concern to many families in New Mexico and elsewhere that have loved ones that reside in a care facility. Patients of nursing homes often have a limited ability to protect themselves from such harm, and they may also have difficulty expressing similar concerns. Those that have concerns about the safety of a family member might find it beneficial to be aware of the potential indicators of elder abuse.
