Las Cruces New Mexico Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

Your family can visit Medicare.gov and the New Mexico Department of Public Health website to obtain a complete list of all violations, citations, and deficiencies identified by investigators and surveyors.

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of two out of five stars, including two out of five stars concerning health inspections, three out of five stars for staffing issues and two out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date July 1, 2016
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to keep residents free from accidents when they failed to lock a medication cart [and] failed to ensure medications were given to a resident at the time they were taken from the medication cart.”

    The facility also “failed to supervise a resident from becoming tangled in her window curtain” involving a resident that “could cause harm, impairment, injury, or death from becoming entrapped in a window curtain.”

  • Failure to Give Every Resident Sufficient Fluids to Keep Them Healthy and Prevent Dehydration – citation date #F327 date July 1, 2016
  • The facility “failed to offer fluids periodically throughout the day to [one resident] sampled for hydration. This deficient practice could likely result in the resident experiencing dehydration with thirst, mental status changes, and decreasing kidney function.”

    The state investigators interviewed a resident son who stated, “I complained to the nurses yesterday because my mother was not served anything to drink with lunch and supper.

    The investigators interviewed the resident’s daughter, who stated, “I came last week, and my mom looked bad. The nurse said she was not drinking anything, but my grandson sat her up and she drank two glasses of water right away.”

    A few minutes later, the state investigators observed the resident “sitting in the Geri-chair (recliner on wheels) in Activities. Her mouth was open, very dry lips are open and stretched over dry gums.”

    A Registered Nurse (RN) stated during an interview that the resident “was just out of the hospital a week ago for abnormal labs (blood test). She has been deteriorating. She refused medications yesterday. She was in the hospital almost a week, and they reported she was not drinking or eating much.”

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
