Medication errors by registered nurses are a big problem

The upcoming February 2017 print version of the Applied Nursing Research journal has a very interesting report about medical errors committed by registered nurses. These nurses are often considered the hallmark employees for patient care. This doesn't mean that they are immune to making errors that can impact patients in a negative manner.

Birth injuries are traumatic and can have lasting effects

Childbirth is a very dangerous event, even when things are all going according to plan. There are many variables that affect the outcome of the birth. As we discussed last week, one of these variables is the need to have the delivery assisted with forceps. This is sometimes necessary to safely deliver the baby, but it can also be dangerous if it isn't done properly.

Forceps deliveries are sometimes necessary but dangerous

Some women who are in labor will need the extra help that comes from forceps. These deliveries are sometimes necessary to get the baby out without having to go through a cesarean section delivery. This isn't to say that the delivery with forceps is fully safe. There are very real risks that are present with these deliveries.

New rule gives nursing home residents the right to sue

As parents and grandparent s age, their children often take on the tasks of caring for their needs and supporting them. When this burden becomes too great or medically impossible, it sometimes becomes necessary to place the elder in a nursing home with experienced caretakers and nurses. While this can provide some relief, there is also often a new burden of wondering whether or not the family member is safe and properly cared for.

Sepsis can go from bad to worse quickly without treatment

Sepsis is a serious infection that can turn fatal quickly. It is imperative that doctors who have a patient that might be septic take appropriate action to determine if sepsis is present so they can determine a proper treatment plan. Understanding sepsis might help patients and their loved ones to know what is going on.

Wet weather safety tips

The mix of cold temperatures and wet weather often creates nightmarish driving conditions for motorists. According to the AAA Exchange, each year the number of car accidents that occur from wet pavement is almost 1.2 million. To keep yourself from becoming a statistic, here are some with weather safety tips to keep in mind.

Diagnosis errors aren't acceptable, action must be taken

We have recently discussed some pregnancy complications that can affect the mother and her unborn baby. In the cases that involve those issues, it is crucial that a proper diagnosis is made so that steps can be taken that might help to save the mother and child. This is also the case with all sorts of medical conditions.
