6 warning signs of nursing home neglect

Is your loved one in a nursing home? Are you suspicious that something is going wrong? Unfortunately, elderly people sometimes suffer from mistreatment at the places they are supposed to be receiving care. In some cases there is a specific intent to abuse the elder. In other instances there is neglect, which involves sub-standard care and breaches of duty. Here are common signs that your loved one is being harmed by negligent actions.

4 common office injuries

When people think of workplace injuries, they often think of positions in warehouses or other physically intense jobs where a worker might suffer serious accidents such as falling, breaking bones or sustaining lacerations. You may not imagine an office to be a risky environment, but there are many work-related injuries that affect clerical staff every day. These four are some of the most common and serious.

What you need to know about brain injuries

Whether from a motor vehicle or work accident, a brain injury is a serious, long-term circumstance to deal with. According to Family Caregiver Alliance, brain injuries are the cause of about 5.3 million Americans now living with disabilities, and every year about 2.5 million more people will sustain a brain injury. If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, you need to be informed about it and the effect it will have on your life.

Study finds over 5,000 facilities cited for nursing home abuse

If you are considering using a nursing facility for a loved one, you are not alone. Over 1.6 million people are residents in nursing homes.

Hunter safety is up, but the need for vigilance remains

Western Pennsylvania has some of the best deer hunting in the country and is a hotbed for all kinds of game. This means that there will be nearly a million hunters out in the woods sitting in deer stands or camping out in duck blinds once again during the 2016 hunting season. Whether going after a trophy buck, a big turkey or a flock of ducks, every hunter knows that hunter safety and caution need to be the highest priority -- just this week, a Utah sheriff was shot in the hand while hunting geese near Soda Springs, Idaho. The sheriff obviously had a lot of experience around guns, yet he was still shot.
