The age of abuse

Elder abuse is an unimaginable offense that has been going on for decades. It first came to be recognized as an issue of growing concern in the 1970s, and nursing homes have, since then, seen greater regulations and supervision. Even now, the problem may be understated. Research conducted by the US General Accountability Office demonstrated that among surveys conducted on a statewide level, there were commonly minimized problems occurring in licensed facilities. The study indicated that surveys commonly miss one or more deficiency as well as immediate jeopardy and harm of a resident of a nursing home.

If a person falls in a nursing home, does anyone hear?

We all hope that a nursing home will be an enjoyable place where we play cards and chat with friends while someone else reminds us to take our medicine, helps us get around and serves us three square meals a day. That should be the case. Even when our health fails and game playing becomes less likely, we should still count on the assistance we need. However, sometimes this doesn't happen the way we intend it. We all want to make sure that our loved ones are taken care of correctly.

Alcohol plays a major part in fatal boating accidents

There are few things more inspiring and fun than a summer firework show. And for boaters taking to the Hudson for the holiday weekend, the feeling is likely to be no different. However, firework displays are at the top of the list of concerns for local law enforcement officials as well as the U.S. Coastguard. Of particular concern is the conclusion of the show, when boaters all attempt to leave at once.

Is your company violating these safety requirements?

Employers and employees have a fairly symbiotic relationship. They need a job done, and you need to earn money. Naturally, just because you show up to work doesn't mean you will get paid. You have to earn your paycheck for hours logged. Why then, should you labor for a company that fails to uphold its end of the bargain, and provide a safe place for you to get your work done? And yet, almost 5,000 workers were killed in 2014, and that isn't even including those that were injured or became ill from job-related causes.
