CDC investigates Legionnaires' disease outbreak

The Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have sent personnel to a Clermont County hospital to trace the source of a recent outbreak of Legionnaires' disease. Two patients at the Mount Carmel medical facility have already been diagnosed with the potentially deadly condition. A hospital representative said that the facility was cooperating with health inspectors and is continuing to provide medical services during the investigation.

Training could reduce risk of medication errors

When Ohio residents visit a hospital or doctor, they are relying on a professional's judgment. While prescription medication can be an important part of restoring health and treating illness, medication errors can also be a common cause of patient injuries. Because prescription medicines can have serious side effects or interactions with other medicine, it is important that the initial prescription be correctly dispensed. Side effects that may be tolerable for the drug's other beneficial effects may become intolerable if the medication is actually unnecessary or ineffective.

Lawsuits accuse Ohio doctor of fatally overdosing ICU patients

Lawyers representing the families of people who died after a doctor allegedly prescribed excessive amounts of painkillers plan to focus on wrongful death claims. Over two dozen lawsuits have emerged since Mount Carmel Health System informed survivors that errors or malfeasance might have caused their family members' deaths.

Possible nursing shortages raise patient safety concerns

Demand for nurses is going up in Ohio and other parts of the country. At the same time, there is a lot of turnover in this field, with a fair number of licensed nurses opting not to work in nursing. This raises the possibility of significant nursing shortages.
