Senate bill would allow nursing homes access to employee database

Each year, thousands of New Mexico families make the difficult decision to place a loved one in the care of a nursing home. In doing so, they must trust that the facility has thoroughly vetted its employees, ensuring they don't have a history of abusive behavior or criminal activities. To help make this process easier, a U.S. senator is pushing to give nursing homes access to a national background checks database.

Nursing home violations and consumer visibility

Any resident in New Mexico who has had to search for a nursing home to help provide care for their parent or another aging relative knows how difficult this process can be. Among the challenges associated with finding a facility that fits in a person's budget and that has an available room when it is needed, families must try to assess the quality of care their loved one will receive. 

Ethical considerations for nursing home webcams

If you are the adult child of a parent in New Mexico who may be getting to the point of needing care beyond what you and other family members can provide, you may well have given thought to finding a nursing home or assisted living facility for your parent. This can be a very scaring proposition for many families as there are a number of residents who experience some form of neglect or abuse at the hands of those tasked with caring for them.

Falls kill about 1,800 U.S. nursing home residents annually

Placing a parent or other elder loved in a New Mexico nursing home or assisted living facility is hard even under the best possible circumstances, but if your loved one also has mobility issues, you may justifiably feel even more trepidation about doing so. At The Harvey & Foote Law Firm, we understand that your concerns may well be justifiable, because falls that lead to serious injuries and resident deaths are alarmingly common in these environments.
