Preventable Health Care Harm Is a Public Health Crisis

Preventable Health Care Harm Is a Public Health Crisis Preventable harm in health care is a public health crisis, with estimates placing it as a leading cause of death in United States. The National Patient Safety Foundation calls on health care leaders and policymakers to initiate a coordinated public health response to improve patient safety and drive the collective work needed to ensure that patients and those who care for them are free from preventable harm.

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer

Women who regularly use talcum baby powder on their genital area increase their risk of ovarian cancer by 24 percent, according to talc cancer research.

The spider-like filters are implanted in patients who are at risk for a pulmonary embolism, when they are unable to take anticoagulants or when those medications have failed.

Essure Fetal Deaths Lead to Rise in Lawsuits

A growing number of reports are linking Bayer Healthcare’s popular permanent birth control device, Essure, with serious complications including Essure fetal deaths. Essure is a form of permanent birth control approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002.

The coils are allowed to set for a few months, allowing the tissue to grow in around them. At this point, once the tissue has grown in completely, the fallopian tubes are blocked entirely, intended to prevent pregnancy. The Essure device...

What consumers do not realize is some of Dollar General's motor oil is obsolete, meaning it should not be used in certain vehicles. On the back of Dollar General's SAE 30 motor oil, in small print, it reads that it's not suitable for automotive engines manufactured after 1930. Two other types, SAE 10W-30 and SAE 10W-40, are not suitable for automotive engines manufactured after 1988. Using DG motor oil in your vehicle can damage your engine, engine components,...

increased

An increased number of Xarelto lawsuits have developed recently, bringing the total number of  Xarelto lawsuits to over 13,000. Plaintiffs allege Xarelto’s manufacturers failed to properly warn them about the risks of bleeding associated with the anticoagulant drug.

That order consolidated 21 separate Xarelto lawsuits into a single action, to be overseen by U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon...

More than 60 million non-repaired recalled vehicles remain on our highways

Recalled

More than 60 million non-repaired recalled vehicles remain on our highways today, this according to Carfax, who recently released data showing facts supporting these recent statistics. It makes you wonder, if vehicle owners are not getting their vehicles fixed as often anymore, or do we have more open recalls on vehicles? The current data collected by Carfax suggests that people seem to have less free time to bring their vehicles to the dealership, as minivans and SUVs make up the majority of the non-repaired recalls. According to a Carfax spokesman, having a recall on your vehicle should make getting it repaired a top...
