Identifying types of nursing home medication errors

When you move your elderly loved one into a Maryland nursing care facility, you hope that he or she will be given the proper medical attention. In addition to being fed and bathed regularly, most nursing home residents require a strict medication regimen. At Wilson & Parlett, we know that when nursing home residents do not receive their medication properly, it can cause serious issues that may have life-threatening consequences. Residents could experience malnutrition, organ failure, high blood pressure, blood clots, reduced immune response and other unexpected medical complications from not taking their medication.

There is no question that winter weather can be a serious hazard to drivers on the road. While some motorists are careful when navigating the streets in wind, rain, ice, snow and fog, others fail to slow down and drive carefully in these inclement weather conditions. This reckless driving can result in tragic car accidents, injuries and deaths in Maryland and throughout the country.  

Identifying the price of body parts in MD workplace accidents

When people have the poor misfortune of losing a body part during a workplace accident, they may be surprised to find out that the price paid to people who lose an extremity varies drastically depending on what state in which they reside. Maryland pays a significant amount more for a lost body part than a number of other states in the nation. Alabama, on the other hand, is one of the lowest paying states. The rate of pay for lost body parts is contingent upon the schedule of benefits listed for that specific state. These differences in workers’ compensation benefits has employees and employers alike arguing that a body part should be worth the same amount regardless of where it was lost.

Why driving at night may increase the risk of an accident

If you travel along Maryland roadways once the sun has set, you are not alone. Many people have errands and functions that require them to navigate the roads in the dark. What you may not know is that your risk of being involved in a fatal car accident is three times higher at night, according to the National Safety Council. At Wilson & Parlett, we know that driving in the dark can be deadly and believe the it is important for people to understand the dangers of nighttime driving.

Misdiagnosis can lead to serious injuries

When patients visit an outpatient clinic or the emergency room in Maryland and across the country, they may expect to receive a thorough examination, diagnosis and a possible treatment plan. In some cases, however, physicians may fail to provide a diagnosis or may misdiagnose patients altogether. This could lead to significant injuries. At Wilson & Parlett, we know that misdiagnosis occurs more often than some people think. This form of medical negligence can be extremely dangerous to patients across all types of health care settings.
