Can I refuse a sobriety test?

After a night of fun, you find yourself on the side of the road, headlights in the rearview mirror. You’ve been pulled over and you’re worried you may be considered legally impaired. What can you do?

Electronic record systems can cause medical errors

Ohio patients may be vulnerable to safety errors when being treated by a medical professional. According to one study, electronic health records (EHRs) could be a reason why they occur. Specifically, issues with electronic records could result in medication errors including prescribing an inappropriate level of a given medication. These conclusions were drawn after looking at 9,000 patient safety reports from 2012 to 2017.

Divorce doesn't have to dampen a child's holiday spirit

Divorce is stressful for families across Ohio and the nation. Unfortunately, the holidays often bring out deeper emotions of sadness for those sharing custody. On top of facing the normal stress involved in the breakup of a family, divorced parents and their children also have to meet new challenges when it comes to visitation and custody. To add to this, younger children especially have a hard time understanding why they are unable to keep family holiday traditions alive with both parents. They may be averse to taking part in new traditions.

Medical errors are a leading cause of death

Preventable medical errors harm patients in Ohio every year. Over 40 percent of Americans feel that healthcare is a top political issue. However, neither Democrats nor Republicans have addressed preventable medical errors. The statistics regarding preventable medical errors are shocking. Reportedly, medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. A 2016 study found that over 250,000 patients likely die every year as a result of preventable medical errors, and a recent survey of nurses found that 35 percent felt not enough is being done to improve patient safety.
