Seeking a second medical opinion

Have you or a family member received a potentially serious or scary medical diagnosis? Do you believe you may be experiencing a serious problem but your doctor cannot find anything wrong or all treatments seem ineffective? Now may be a very important time for you to get the input of a different doctor or medical provider.

Questions to ask before having surgery

Massachusetts residents who have been recommended to have surgery may understandably feel nervous about this prospect. Before proceeding blindly, people should take the time before a procedure to ask questions and learn as much as they can. Doing this can help to ease fears and may also improve patient safety.

What is Erb’s palsy?

As an expectant or new parent in Massachusetts, you should be educated about some of the potential birth injuries that may occur during labor and delivery. Some injuries may not be visibly obvious immediately so your watchful eye at the time and after you are home with your baby is important. This can give you the best opportunity for taking action and seeking help as soon as a problem is suspected. One injury to learn about is called Erb’s palsy.

Area hospitals known for high risk of infection

Many Massachusetts residents receive care through the Harvard Medical School system or Johns Hopkins University. For many patients, the association with a highly reputable academic and medical institution may provide a sense of security or trust in the level of care received. While there are many positive things about these two institutions and their facilities, there may also be some lesser-known dangers.

Elder abuse and its warning signs

If you have to face the difficult decision of putting your parent, grandparent, or other elderly relative into a care facility, you are not alone. Countless other residents in Massachusetts and throughout the nation must navigate this situation every day. The process of selecting a facility is one step but the ongoing concerns about the safety of your loved one remains even once a move-in has taken place.
