There are things you can do to decrease the chances your loved one becomes a victim of New Mexico nursing home abuse.

Visit the nursing home. While many New Mexico nursing homes offer tours, make sure you look beyond what they want you to see. If possible, talk to other residents and their families, see if there are any state reports, find out how long the nursing home has been around, compare the nurse and staff to patient ratio, ask if the nursing home is a restraint-free facility, do you notice unusual odors, are all hallways free of obstacles, are the trash receptacles overflowing or emptied, ask if there are visiting restrictions during evenings, meals, or other times. Careful analysis of nursing homes will hopefully precent the need to ever hire a New Mexico nursing home abuse lawyer.
