Patients can help reduce the likelihood of medical errors

Some New Jersey residents may have heard about a study done by doctors at John Hopkins University that looked at hospital records and found that up to 200,000 deaths per year happened because of medical errors. If their estimates are correct, it is the third-leading cause of death in the country. However, even if their figures are not entirely accurate, medical errors happen more often than they should. Usually, they occur because of a breakdown of communication during patient transfers or shift changes or due to other system failures such as medication errors.

Tips for safely administering multiple medications

Many New Jersey residents who take multiple doses of various types of medications daily or who give them to someone else understand how complicated this can be. In fact, thousands of people are harmed each year because they took their medications incorrectly or skipped them altogether.

Federal safety violation fines to increase on Aug. 1

Employers in New Jersey and around the county that violate the federal government's occupational health and safety laws will face far steeper fines after Aug. 1. The hike marks the first time that these fines have been increased in more than 20 years, and they will go up by more than 75 percent to account for inflation since 1990. The fines will now be adjusted annually according to the rate of inflation. The maximum fine for a single violation will increase from $7,000 to $12,471, and persistent violators could be fined as much as $124,709 for each violation.
