Improving survival chances with a female doctor

According to a study published in Dec. 19 in a peer-reviewed medical journal, there is a clinical difference in the outcomes of certain patients who have female doctors and those who have male doctors. New York elderly residents who are sick and have to be admitted to a hospital to receive care may be interested to know that having a female doctor increases their chances of survival. In addition, such patients have less of a tendency to be re-hospitalized within a month of being discharged.

The layers of workplace hazard control

New York companies should take several steps to keep workers safe while they perform hazardous work. The 'layered approach" to workplace safety is recommended by the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety. Each layer of workplace hazard control is important, and employers should not think of the layers as a list of options.

Preventing slip and fall accidents caused by ice and snow

New York property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is safe for visitors or customers. However, when the cold weather approaches, keeping property free from ice and snow, which could lead to serious slip-and-fall accidents, can be a difficult task. Even so, there are things that property owners can do to avoid liabilities.

When New York physicians label patients with a penicillin allergy without testing for the condition, they could be denying people access to effective treatments in the future. During the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, attendees learned that approximately 90 percent of people diagnosed with penicillin allergies could take the drug without serious consequences. Physicians either misdiagnosed the people to begin with, or the people outgrew the sensitivity.
