What are some red flags of neglect?

It is upsetting when you learn that your loved in not being properly taken care of the people you entrusted him or her with. This is an unfortunate thing that can easily happen if your loved one is in a nursing home. While New Mexico has laws to help prevent neglect, it may still happen. The only way you can protect your loved one is to be aware of the signs of neglect.

New Mexico's nursing home condition realities

Most people in New Mexico know at least one family who has a loved one living in a nursing home. Many are in this situation themselves as more and more people in the baby boom generation move to ages where such care may be needed. Anyone who needs this type of care for a relative should be able to trust that their loved one is well treated. Unfortunately, that does not always happen.

The emotional toll of losing someone you love

Medical professional negligence takes a variety of forms and the consequences of these mistakes vary. Sometimes, people become seriously hurt or fall ill, while others may even lose their lives. When someone passes away as a result of a doctor's error or another medical professional's poor decision, their loved ones may never be able to fully recover from the loss. Sadly, the emotional toll of losing a loved one to medical professional negligence can be absolutely devastating, and it may even derail someone's life. As a result, we believe that the families of those who have passed away in Albuquerque and across New Mexico deserve justice.

What security measures should a nursing home take?

Making the decision to put your loved one in a nursing home in New Mexico is never easy. When you do have to make that decision, you want to be sure the place is well managed and will provide a safe and secure home for your loved one. One of the things you should check into is the safety measures the nursing home has in place.
