Signs of nursing home abuse

Elder abuse is becoming a bigger problem in the United States for a multitude of reasons, and people are more aware of the issue. The National Center on Elder Abuse reports in 2014, over 2 million people resided in a nursing home or residential care community. During that year, about 188,000 complaints were made to a national reporting system. About 8 percent of the complaints involved abuse or gross neglect.

Diabetes must be diagnosed properly or damage can occur

Medical conditions require a proper diagnosis so that they can be treated accordingly. Patients who don't get a proper diagnosis can't get the help they need and they might end up in a downward health spiral that causes significant damage to their health and life in general. One disease that needs to be diagnosed early is diabetes.

Birth injuries can lead to life-long effects

We recently discussed how superobese women have considerations during labor and delivery that need to be studied more. Of course, this is also true for a variety of other situations that occur in labor and delivery. All women who are going to have a baby should understand the risks that they face. They need to be aware of the options they have regarding the birth process.

Understanding dangerous driving

When you are out on the road, you need to be able to keep yourself and your passengers safe. That means knowing everything you can about how to operate your vehicle and putting that knowledge into practice in ways that help you minimize risk.

More studies are needed on delivery types for super obese women

Women who are classified as obese face challenges when they are pregnant. They have to contend with more health issues during the pregnancy than women who aren't classified as obese. Women who are in the super obese and morbidly obese categories face a more increased risk of these issues than women in the obese category.

Medical facilities must have protocols to prevent errors

Medication errors are serious matters because they can have a negative impact on patients who are already having medical issues. Medical facilities should ensure that they have proper protocol in place so that people who distribute the medications provide patients with the proper drugs in the correct dosages at the ordered times.
