The truth about hospitals and the infection rate in America

Infections are commonplace in hospitals, but they shouldn't be. With the right care and preventative measures, your environment should be as sterile as possible, preventing you from suffering from secondary conditions. Even visitors and doctors in the hospital setting can be exposed to these sometimes life-threatening infections, which is why it's so important to prevent them.

Deaths due to medical errors underreported

Death is inevitably a part of life. Most hope that when the time comes the end will be peaceful and follow a long, good life. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. At times, a life could be cut short by the negligent actions of others. It is possible those actions could even be at the hands of people who are trusted to provide lifesaving medical care.

Summit County looks for heirs to complete settlements

Many years ago, the damage that could be caused by asbestos was not understood. Today, it's much more clear that this material can cause serious health conditions. Workers who were exposed to asbestos in the past may have become seriously ill because of that exposure.

Are falls common in nursing homes?

Are falls in nursing homes really that common? Unfortunately, yes. Older adults can be unsteady, and they rely on the nursing care at the facility to support them and make sure they have what they need to get around the facility safely. Every year, around 100 to 200 falls take place in an average nursing home with 100 beds. Many of the falls that take place aren't reported since there are no injuries, but that doesn't mean they don't happen.
