September 2018 Archives

Severe and fatal workplace injuries underreported by OSHA

The Department of Labor's Office of Inspector General released an audit report in September stating that OSHA has not been doing enough to keep track of serious and fatal workplace injuries. This is despite the fact that the safety organization had made changes to its injury and illness recordkeeping rule, which went into effect in January 2015. Employees and employers in New Jersey will want to know more about the report and how OSHA has responded.

Additional consultations could reduce lung misdiagnoses

People in New Jersey who are trying to understand their ongoing problems with their lungs and the ability to breathe may face issues receiving a correct diagnosis. However, by adding assessments for routine rheumatology issues, such as blood tests, to the process of diagnosing interstitial lung disease (ILD), doctors could help improve accuracy and prevent misdiagnoses. In the process, they could also reduce the need for invasive, painful procedures like biopsies or bronchoscopies, which can also have significant side effects.

Why construction work can be dangerous

Those who are on a construction site in New Jersey or anywhere else may face a variety of hazards on the job. For instance, they could be put in danger in the event of a trench collapse. To mitigate this hazard, a qualified person can inspect it while employers mark any utilities that may be encountered in the trench. Furthermore, trenches should be supported to help keep employees safe while working in them.

Preventable medication errors in hospitals

Some New Jersey residents are the victims of medication errors when they are patients in hospitals. There are several errors that are fairly common but also preventable. It is important for doctors, nurses and hospitals to take steps to prevent these medication mistakes from happening so that the patients will be protected.

The right of New Jersey residents to file a wrongful death claim

Motor vehicles are an integral part of modern American society. They provide people with independence and freedom, but they also create substantial risk for anyone on the road. Most people go about their daily lives attempting to ignore or overlook the potential risks that come from traveling in motor vehicles.
