Truck drivers need more sleep

Are truck drivers passing through Louisiana getting enough sleep? According to Forbes, line haul drivers all across the United States are suffering from sleep deprivation. There have been a number of legislations proposed, including the 34-hour restart, but many have failed to grab hold and truck drivers and their employers often find ways around the others.

Harmful effects of defective drugs

In January of this year, CNN reported that Torrent Pharmaceuticals had expanded their recall for medication used to treat diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease. Similarly, Aurobindo Pharma USA also recalled medication used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure. These recalls affected patients in Louisiana and all across America who were currently taking the medication to manage various health conditions.

Minimize the risk of drug interactions

Most of the time, medications work wonders for Louisiana residents who live with uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating symptoms. Medications help with pain relief, fight infections and control certain issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure. However, sometimes medications can cause unwanted reactions. This often occurs due to interactions. MedlinePlus details how interactions may occur and the possible side effects of them. 

What are the risks of getting an epidural?

Labor is an often difficult and painful process that, for many women, detracts from the joy of having a baby. To make labor a more comfortable and enjoyable experience, Louisiana offers a few pain relief options. One such option is an epidural block. An epidural block, which an anesthesiologist delivers via a tube in your back, blocks the pain signals before they can reach your brain. It may also cause you to temporarily lose feeling below the waist. Though epidural blocks are extremely effective, they are not without risks. Healthline details a few common and not-so-common side effects of this popular pain relief method.

Distracted driving is the new drunk driving

For decades, drunk drivers faced a lot of criticism and public outcry. Police officers and organizations did what they could to raise awareness and crack down on infractions. Gradually, the numbers came down. It's still a big risk, but it's not what it once was.

Are you protected from unisured drivers on Lousiana roads?

If you are like most people in Louisiana, you probably do your best to stay safe on the roads. You keep your vehicle well-maintained, follow traffic laws and carry appropriate liability insurance. The sad truth is that not everyone is as responsible. There are a small but significant portion of the population who drive their vehicles without active liability insurance.

Were you involved in a crash because of road flaws?

As a resident of Louisiana who has been involved in a crash, you know exactly how damaging these incidents can be. They can be particularly hard to handle when they're single-car crashes where faults with the road are the cause. MGM Attorneys are here to help you in your quest for compensation.

Do electronic health records prevent medical mistakes?

During the waning years of the 20th century and into the first decade of the 21st, there was a big, bipartisan, political push to implement electronic health records throughout the United States, including Louisiana. Republican leaders George W. Bush and Newt Gingrich were in favor of EHR implementation, but it was during the Obama administration that the government started offering financial incentives to health care facilities large and small to adopt the system, appropriating a significant portion of federal stimulus funds expressly for that purpose.
