What is medical malpractice in nursing?

Medical malpractice is a term that is usually associated with doctors; however, it is a term that can also be used when referring to nurses who don't provide patients with adequate medical care. Patients who are injured by medical malpractice in nursing can seek compensation just like a patient who is injured because of a doctor's medical malpractice.

Circumstances must be considered in car accident cases

Being injured in an accident that was caused by another driver means that you will now incur unexpected costs. You might have to seek out medical care. You might have to take time off of work. You might suffer from emotional trauma. Each of those points plays a very important role in your claim for compensation. We can help you to put your case together in a way that shows the devastating effects of the accident and how those effects affected your life then and how they continue to affect your life now.

Wrong-way crashes on the rise in Ohio

Wrong-way crashes can be devastating partially because of the impact that occurs when the vehicles collide. New information shows that the number of deaths caused by wrong-way accidents has gone up in Ohio. In fact, the number of wrong-way crashes overall has gone up in the state.

Concussion diagnositic procedure might be changing

A person who suffers from a concussion often has great difficulties getting a definitive diagnosis unless the concussion is severe. Generally, a person who suffered a hit to the head is placed on concussion restrictions and monitoring protocol, which often includes keeping an eye on the person and symptoms at home. That strategy for treating people who seek medical care for a hit to the head might be changing.

What is elder abuse and what are the reporting requirements?

Elder abuse is something to which no elderly person should ever be subjected. For some elderly residents in nursing homes, the sad reality is that abuse and neglect do occur. When this happens, the incidents should be reported to the proper authorities so that action can be taken.
