The Tide Pod Challenge: Why Are Teens Eating Detergent?

detergent products.pngTeens are placing their health in jeopardy by ingesting toxic laundry detergent pacs in the Tide Pod Challenge as social media spreads the message that "all the cool people are doing it." This trend can cause chemical burns, central nervous system reactions and other serious personal injuries that could result in wrongful deaths.

Shocking Number of Patients Not Really Brain Dead

Thumbnail image for hospital patient-840135_640.jpgStudies from Canada indicate that approximately 20% of patients misdiagnosed as "brain-dead" are in fact conscious and have the potential to recover from traumatic brain injuries.

New technology that detects brain activity could be the answer.

Recent studies have confirmed what professionals have long feared. Many nursing homes, in an effort to make staff members' jobs easier, will occasionally overprescribe medication or prescribe unnecessary medicine to their residents. One investigation conducted by NPR found that an excessive number of nursing home residents received antipsychotic drugs even though they did not have a condition that warranted such medication.

Hydroplaning can occur when even a small amount of water is present on the road surface.

Should you talk to nursing home staff if you suspect abuse?

There are around 1,200 long-term care facilities in the state of Illinois. According to the state's Department of Public Health, these facilities assist over 100,000 citizens. While most of these facilities are perfectly reputable, abuse has occurred in the state before and will most likely happen again.
