Why you should take a motorcycle training program

In Virginia, motorcyclists do not have to take a training course in order to get a license. However, according to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, it does make a difference in how riders may attain a Class M motorcycle designation on their driver’s license. For those who do not complete the Virginia Rider Training Program, there is a knowledge exam and a road skills test. Those who do take the class will have these two requirements waived.

How nursing home understaffing leads to neglect

When it comes to choosing a nursing home in Virginia for your loved one, you should look past the amenities, cost and location. You should also take into consideration its staffing levels. Understaffing is a chronic issue that affects many nursing homes across the nation. 

Warning signs of bedsores to watch for

Pressure sores, often known as bedsores, are common in patients who are bed- or wheelchair-bound. A bedsore occurs when the skin presses against something which limits the blood flow to the skin. This pressure doesn't even have to be very much; it just has to lessen the blood flow to that part of the body. This kind of pressure typically happens in places which are not well-padded, such as an elbow, the shoulder blades or the tailbone, but it can occur on any place on the body. 

Identifying the symptoms of brain injuries

Whether motorists are involved in a catastrophic collision or minor car accidents, they run the risk of receiving a brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries occur more often than some people may think. Every day in the United States, 153 people die from injuries involving traumatic brain damage, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, these injuries contribute to approximately 30 percent of all injury deaths in the country. Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries often go undiagnosed as a number of people are not aware of the signs and symptoms, and never receive medical attention.

Computerized records may cause medical mistakes

Whether you have visited a health care provider in Virginia one time in the past, or dozens of times, that information should all be in your medical records. This should be reviewed every time you go to a facility or provider because past issues may inform the present diagnosis and treatment. At Cranwell & Moore P.L.C., Attorneys at Law, we often advise people whose health has been compromised by misdiagnoses and other medical mistakes.
