Protect yourself from medication errors

Medications are now available to treat almost any type of disease thanks to ongoing research in the medical community. Doctors in New York City are typically well educated and careful when they prescribe medications for their patients. However, mistakes are possible in any situation. Unfortunately, the problems that can arise as a result of a medication error include serious health risks, and even death.

Laser pointers should never be used carelessly or maliciously

The ready availability and many potential uses of laser pointers in New York City make them a popular purchase, and anyone on the streets may have one. Some people may not realize that these beams of light are potentially dangerous.

Stretch limos should include standard safety features

Many people in New York City take advantage of transportation to and from events to continue the celebration and prevent potential drunk driving situations. However, according to the International Business Times, modified stretch limousines and party vans are not the safe alternative they are publicized to be.

Pedestrian program lowering the number of senior fatalities

Walking is an important form of transportation in New York City, but those on the city’s sidewalks are not necessarily headed to work or school. Older residents also take advantage of the walkability of their neighborhoods. Unfortunately, according to the New York City Department for the Aging, although seniors make up just 12 percent of the city’s population, they account for 36 percent of the pedestrian fatalities.

Window guards are required in many New York City buildings

Whether a window in an apartment building in New York City is three feet above the ground or thirty, a person who falls through it can sustain injuries, or even die. According to Medical Daily, it is children under the age of five who are most likely to be hospitalized with a head or neck injury after a fall from a window. To prevent this type of devastating accident, window guards are recommended for anyone who is babyproofing a home.

Bacterial sepsis symptoms, treatment and prevention in infants

Protecting an infant from the hazards of daily life can be a source of anxiety for parents in New York City, and for these people, safeguarding their baby from accidents and illnesses is a natural priority. One potential risk parents should be aware of is bacterial sepsis, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports was seventh in the top ten causes of infant death in 2013, affecting 578 babies.

Is computer-assisted surgery right for you?

If you are preparing to undergo gynecological surgery in New York, your doctor may suggest the use of a computer-assisted surgical system. According to the FDA, although this technology is often called robotically-assisted surgery, the controls are all manipulated by surgeons, and no part of the process is performed directly by the computer. This federal agency notes that the machines themselves are considered safe.

Software upgrades add self-driving functions to vehicles

Driving in the notorious traffic on the streets of New York City may be a significant cause for anxiety for many. However, that does not mean they would be willing to hand that task over to a computer. In fact, NBC News reports that a recent Harris Poll shows 52 percent believe self-driving cars are dangerous. Regardless of people’s feelings on driverless cars in New York, it appears that they may soon be a reality.
