Dehydration and nursing homes

Nursing home service providers have a lot of responsibilities. They must ensure that residents are properly monitored, that they receive their medications in the right dosage and at the right times, and that they are adequately fed. Though these issues are often addressed, there is another matter that is often overlooked: dehydration.

Floridians lack access to physicians compared to other states

Providing medical care is serious business. Medical professionals are often left with the success of one's health in their hands. An attentive, thorough, knowledgeable and skilled doctor may be able to diagnose a condition and treat it effectively, minimizing the effects of a serious injury or medical condition and perhaps saving a patient's life. However, adequately treating a patient requires time, and according to new reports, Florida's doctors may be strapped for time thanks to a doctor shortage.

How common are inadvertent punctures during surgery?

Many Floridians who have to undergo a medical procedure feel uneasy about the idea. They may feel queasy about being rendered unconscious and then being cut open and prodded. Yet, with today's medical technology and knowledge, many operations go off without a hitch, and patients are left better off. No system is perfect, however, and when mistakes occur during a surgery, the results can be tragic.

Medication errors and how the FDA tries to prevent them

Adequate healthcare often incorporates several elements. A patient must be thoroughly examined, accurately diagnosed, and appropriately treated, whether that means prescribing medication, conducting an operation, or both. Many Miamians undergo medical care with no issues. Others, though, are subjected to negligent care that can leave them worse off than they were before treatment.
