Improved tracking systems may create safer New Jersey workplaces

A yearlong analysis of existing programs dedicated to worker safety in the U.S. has resulted in a call from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to reconfigure existing information systems to create safer working conditions in a changing economy. Analysts say that the study illustrates a need for improved health surveillance systems as well as better tracking and monitoring of occupational injuries. Experts are also calling for a systemic sharing of information between agencies.

Autoimmune disorders can be ripe for misdiagnosis

For people in New Jersey dealing with autoimmune disorders, the process of getting them diagnosed can seem like an endless investigation into an unsolvable puzzle. While attempting to determine the cause of painful, disruptive and damaging symptoms, doctors and other health care professionals may pursue and even provide treatment for a number of incorrect diagnoses along the way. In some cases, autoimmune diseases are incurable. However, proper treatment and remediation can make a significant difference in the quality and even the length of a patient's life.

Biopsy robot could aid New Jersey breast cancer diagnoses

Each year throughout the U.S., cancer surgeons perform around 1.7 million breast cancer biopsies. Biopsies are known for being time-consuming and are not always accurate, but a 3D-printed robot that's in its final development stage in the Netherlands could revolutionize how they are performed.

A wrongful death lawsuit can offer justice after a crash

Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle collision is a heartbreaking experience. While any death is tragic, some are easier for survivors to process. Illnesses, such as cancer, provide families with a chance to come to terms with the impending death before it actually happens. While that won't reduce the grief the family experiences, it does allow an opportunity for closure for everyone involved.

Analysis finds lack of infection control common in nursing homes

An analysis based on a review of inspection records over several years has found that nearly 75 percent of nursing homes have notable lapses in infection control procedures. These lapses involve many basic infection control methods, such as hand-washing and keeping contagious patients away from other residents. This is coupled with a growing concern over the spread of antibiotic-resistant germs in healthcare facilities in New Jersey and throughout the United States.
