Consider the real ramifications of texting and driving

When warning drivers about texting behind the wheel, it's easy to stick to generalities. You may say something like "It makes an accident more likely" or "You should always try to avoid distractions."

It's not that those things are not true. They are. It's just that they're so general that it's easy for people to ignore them or overlook the bigger issue. They know that it may make an accident more likely, for instance, but they still think that they're safe enough. Or they think that it will happen to someone else.

Back pain after a car crash can signal serious issues

A person who is involved a car accident might have back pain after the wreck. Many people will have nothing more than muscle soreness from the impact. However, pain in this area can sometimes signal a serious injury. Seeing a doctor after the crash can help determine what you need to do as your body heals from the incident.

Don't expect that your back will hurt at the scene of the accident. You might not feel the stiffness until the next morning or even a few days after. If you do realize that you have any pain, having an evaluation must be a priority.

Nursing homes today have improved greatly from ones in the past

There are many things that people might mistakenly believe about nursing homes. One thing that everyone should know is that the skilled care facilities today have taken great strides from where they were a decade ago. There are some points that anyone who is going into one of these facilities should know. Being aware of these points could help the resident avoid becoming a victim of nursing home negligence.

Some individuals might have a concern about the quality of care they will receive. Because of the implementation of care plan meetings and other oversight, there is only a slight chance that the resident won't receive quality care. One survey found that 88% of nursing home residents are satisfied with the care they receive at the facility they are living in.

Back injuries are a leading cause of lost time at work

Many occupations come with a risk of back injuries, but physical laborers have an increased exposure to danger. All employers must have protocol in place to reduce the risks on the job. It is their duty to provide workers with a safe working environment.

Back injuries are the leading cause of missed days of work in this country. This can cost businesses money, and it also impacts the employee's income. The only way to prevent this is for companies to have procedures and guidelines in place to address the dangers, and employees have to comply.

The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that General Mills has issued a nationwide recall of 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour with a specific use-by date over concerns the product could be contaminated with E. coli, the company announced Monday.

Social media could improve product recall effectiveness

The popularity of social media makes it an excellent tool for marketing, but some companies aren't utilizing it in a way that keeps consumers safe. These companies will post ads for the products to consumers on these networks, but information about safety hazards and recalls isn't posted on social media.

Some companies pick and choose which platforms to use to warn consumers of issues. Fisher-Price failed to alert the almost 540,000 people who follow it on Instagram of the recall of 4.7 million inclined sleepers. It did post a notice on Facebook and Twitter, which have a total of 6.7 million followers.

Malnutrition is problematic for nursing home residents; act now

Nursing home residents count on the facility to provide them with their meals. It is imperative that nursing home staff members take the time to evaluate residents for malnutrition on a regular basis. This isn't always easy, but it can save the residents from suffering harm that malnutrition can cause. It can also save the facility from facing legal action based on neglect.

There are many ways that nursing homes can evaluate residents for malnutrition. One of these is keeping track of which residents eat. Taking a roster at mealtimes or paying attention to who is having food delivered to them can provide a key look into how often each person is eating.
