Your child's cerebral palsy may have been preventable

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a complex brain disorder that can involve both physical and cognitive disabilities. It most often develops at or near birth. It is often preventable if a physician recognizes the obvious risks that can lead to brain injuries at birth and takes the appropriate precautions.

Veterans receive terrible care in VA nursing homes nationwide

America's veterans age just like the rest of the general population -- and many of them end up in nursing homes run by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Many of these nursing homes are providing care that is substandard, at best -- outright horrible at worst.

How to stay involved in your parent's care at a nursing home

Putting a parent in a nursing home is never an easy decision. You probably worry often about the care your mom or dad is receiving, and for good reason. Nursing home abuse is a real problem in the U.S., and it is not only staff you have to worry about harming your loved one. According to the Office for Victims of Crime, almost a quarter of abuse complaints at nursing homes involve residents hurting other residents.

Bullying culture in health care can be detrimental to patients

Unfortunately, not everyone leaves bullying behind after their high school years. This can be especially true in the health care industry. In fact, some experts say that on-the-job bullying is more prevalent in health care than any other field across the country. You and other Ohio residents should be aware of this, because if bullying is present among your medical team as you are hospitalized, it can have an adverse effect on your health and safety.

Even though you have exceptional riding skills, you must worry about others who share the roadways. If you are in a wreck, you may need to act quickly to protect your legal rights. 

Why motorcycle collisions often cause serious injuries

As the snow melts and temperatures climb, you may be itching to dust off your motorcycle and hit the road. Before you do, though, you must think about your safety and well-being. After all, fatal motorcycle crashes are common in late spring and early summer, reveals the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

Why isn't a federal agency doing more to stop truck accidents?

It's probably not fair to say that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) isn't doing anything to protect the average motorist from accidents with large trucks -- but it definitely isn't doing what it could be.
