Warming temperatures start off motorcycle season

Much to the appreciation of riders across the state, Ohio ushered in a warm and early spring, with temperatures rising to the mid 80s in May. The warm weather was an appropriate welcome to the month which also serves as National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Every year, drivers are reminded to share the road with motorcycles. Officials ask both drivers and riders to take every safety precaution possible to protect themselves from an accident.

The problem with electronic health records

Many doctors and health care offices have been transitioning their patient record systems to electronic health records. While this seems like a more streamlined, accessible system, it can also mean it's easier for errors to make their way on to patient health records, which may increase the risk of medical malpractice incidents.

How can I tell if my loved one is being abused?

Anyone who has had to put a loved one into a nursing home knows how difficult it can be to trust the health and well-being of a relative to a stranger. With more and more nursing home abuse and neglect stories making it to the news, ensuring your loved one's health and safety has never been a bigger priority. Doing your research and selecting the best facility you can afford is a good way to decrease the risk of abuse, but knowing the warning signs is also important to catch and deal with any issues promptly.

Briefly glancing away from the road increases crash risk

The Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety reported in April, coinciding with National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, that momentary distractions, including a glance at a mobile phone, delays the hazard anticipation of drivers and potentially increases the probability of traffic accidents. It could be surprising to Ohio drivers that a vehicle traveling at 70 mph moves about 67 yards, or more than half the distance of a football field, in two seconds.
