Providing health care is a dangerous job

Health care workers are extremely important, but few people are aware of the fact that these workers face a risk of injury or illness that is higher than most other types of jobs. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hospital workers face more safety risks in one day of work than do people employed in construction or manufacturing.

Doctor injured several patients state medical board says

With so much attention being placed on organ donation, it is not uncommon for people to decide to share one of their kidneys with someone else. It is likely that more than one person in Corinth has undergone surgery in order to help another. The last thing they expect, however, is to be the victim of surgical errors. When mistakes are made in the operating room, patients can suffer long-lasting effects such as pain, a worsened condition or new health issues that require additional medical treatment.

Faster highways may come to Mississippi

We have dedicated a number of our posts to auto accidents. In a majority of our stories, two factors are dominant: excessive speed and inclement weather. Because of this, we have reminded our readers across Western Tennessee and Northern Mississippi that when weather conditions deteriorate, it is best to slow down.

Child injured by errant shot from hunter

Tragedy was averted when a child riding a school bus was only grazed by a passing bullet. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that a child riding in a Panola County School bus with other students was hit in the back. The bullet reportedly went through a side window and struck the student. He was taken to a local hospital and treated. He is expected to have a full recovery.

Icy conditions can lead to tragic results

In a prior post, we warned our readers about the perils of winter driving in Mississippi and Tennessee. Essentially, black ice is an unpredictable and unforgiving road condition that can lead to tragic accidents. With the recent cold weather passing through our region, we find it prudent to remind our readers of what they can do to avoid accidents.

New safety technology should be offered in all vehicles

In our last post we reported on how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed new rules regarding engine noise on electric and hybrid vehicles. The Administration was responding to claims that the lack of noise from these vehicles created a hazard to bicyclists and pedestrians who often relied on the sound of a car coming to determine whether it was safe to cross the street.

NHTSA proposes engine noise requirements for hybrids

Imagine the commanding growl of a V-8 engine coming from a Toyota Prius, or the throaty roar of a sports car coming from a Nissan Leaf. Indeed, these are far-fetched comparisons, but they are examples of some of the sounds contemplated through a new proposal set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in an effort to reduce the risk of pedestrians being injured by electric cars and hybrids.

Celebrity photographer hit and killed by SUV

The relationship between photographers and celebrities will likely become more complicated in the new year after a 29-year-old photographer was killed trying to take pictures of Justin Bieber's car. The California Highway Patrol stopped his Ferrari on the 405 Freeway just before 6:00 p.m. on New Year's Day. The photographer stopped his car on a windy portion of Sepulveda Boulevard and crossed the road to get a prime shot of the pop superstar. A picture of a high-profile celebrity in legal trouble could yield more than $100,000.

How to drive safely during the holidays

While Old Man Winter pummels the Midwest, we find it fitting to remind our readers of how dangerous road travel can be during the holidays. The forecast for our region calls for heavy rain and the possibility of ice, which can become challenging compared to normal road conditions. With many of our readers driving to see relatives this week, our post this week will center on helpful safe driving tips.
