Preventing pressure sores

One serious problem faced by many people in nursing homes is that of bedsores or pressure ulcers. These sores damage the cells of the skin. People who cannot freely move about are at the highest risk for bedsores. Pressure against the skin causes bedsores. The pressure does not even have to be that great; it simply has to cut off the blood circulation to a particular area. Common sites where bedsores occur are on the tailbone, shoulder blades, heels, backs of arms and legs, or on the hip. 

Incorrect diagnosis can come from lab reports

People who go to the doctor rely on the doctor and others who are involved in their care to get an accurate diagnosis. Many people tend to think about incorrect diagnosis situations occurring when a diagnosis is missed. For example, a person who has cancer not being diagnosed with cancer so the disease is left unchecked. This isn't the only way that an incorrect diagnosis can occur.

Labs sometimes provide incorrect results to patients

When you realize that you have a lump somewhere on your body and it doesn't go away, you might decide to make a trip to the doctor for help determining what is going on with you. This is a situation in which you are actually putting your trust in your doctor with something that is very serious. But, did you realize that you are putting your trust in complete strangers?
