New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer – Surgical Black Box Helps Prevent Errors & Medical Malpractice

New York City – 10/31/2015 — Several states throughout the country have bills pending which would give patients the right to have surgical procedures videotaped or otherwise recorded. One such bill, called Raina’s Law, is being considered in New York and is named after a woman who died during surgery as a result of anesthesiologist negligence. Another, Assembly Bill 255 or the Julie Ayer Rubenze Law, is being considered in Wisconsin. That bill is named after a young woman who also died due to anesthesia complications during surgical procedures.

The bills aim to help prevent surgical errors and to make it easier for patients and their families to pursue malpractice claims when mistakes happen. However, while these bills could have an impact if states pass these laws, some are concerned action on the state level is not sufficient to prevent surgical errors.

The Hill recently published an article by the brother of Julie Ayer Rubenze, for whom the proposed Wisconsin law is named. He argues federal lawmakers should make several fundamental changes applicable to the entire country to bring down the rate of injuries and fatalities during surgical procedures.

Proposed Laws and Legal Changes to Prevent Surgical Errors

The brother of the Wisconsin woman killed during surgery met with the Wisconsin State Representative who introduced the bill named after his sister, which is also being called the “Surgical Black Box Bill.” The bill is being called the “strongest patient safety bill in generations,” because it allows all data obtained on the video recording to be used in a court of law.

The data from the video recording would also be used by disciplinary boards so bad doctors could be identified. However, if it goes into effect, it would only impact Wisconsin- and if New York’s law goes into effect, it would only protect patients in New York. At the federal level, and in other states, patients would continue to be limited in their ability to understand what goes on during their surgical procedures.

CNN reports surgical “black boxes” are currently under development, and could even go beyond just simple video cameras to make a major impact on patient safety. These black boxes would use microphones and cameras to record interactions among surgical staff, communications among medical providers, and actions of the surgeon performing the procedure.

Patients nationwide should be provided with the right to have these black boxes used in operating rooms if they wish to understand what surgeons are doing during procedures and patients nationwide should be able to use the information recorded on these videos when problems occur during surgery.

The brother of the Wisconsin woman also argues certain other changes need to be made on the federal level to positively impact patient care during surgeries. For example, a national provider database should be created so patients can research the history of their surgeons and a national tracking system should be created for doctors who are found liable for malpractice. Doctors who lose their license in one state are currently resurfacing in other states as well, with patients unaware their doctor has made serious mistakes in the past.

While Federal laws dealing with malpractice in general might sound attractive, there are powerful anti-plaintiff forces in Congress that might seek to tie such measures to limitations on damages . For the moment at least, it is probably in the interest of patients to have this issue dealt with on a state by state basis.

The Secret to The Secret Aka “The Gamer”

Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, 10/30/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

THE SECRET TO THE SECRET

Millions of people have read The Secret. And though the book contains relevant and dynamic information designed specifically to help others succeed in life, there is perhaps another little known book that has even greater significance than that. This book has often been called by some, The Secret to the Secret and its actual title is The Gamer. It is indeed a very powerful book that shows the readers specific things they can actually do to become more successful in virtually any endeavor they desire to pursue.

Dr. Robert L. Lawson, the author, has researched many volumes of success literature to uncover those ideas that are the most effective. For example, the famous author of Walden’s Pond, Henry David Thoreau, provides this advice to any seeker of success. “If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

The Gamer, an approximate 100 page book, is filled with important advice about success from leading historical figures to those individuals who represent modern day success gurus. William James Tilley, author of the 1889 best seller, Masters of the Situation: Some Secrets of Success and Power says, “Work, work, work is the secret of all great achievement and distinguished success.” And then, there’s Michael Jordan’s famous quote about what it takes to become successful in life. He says, “I’ve missed over 9,000 shots in my career, I’ve lost over 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been asked to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”

This book, a quick read, shares ideas and success strategies that have been proven to work from some of the greatest minds of all time. Anyone who has hopes and dreams of making it big or just has a desire to improve his status should own and read a copy. This is the kind of book that will encourage and inspire you to reach for and achieve higher levels of excellence. And, as Dr. Lawson, the author of this outstanding book would say, “If indeed you would take the time to apply the principles written about in The Gamer to your own life, you can and you will succeed which actually means that your best is yet to come. Order your copy of The Gamer today and improve your chances of becoming even more successful than you are today.

It’s a Wrap: Aidan Gray Opens with a Bang at High Point Market

Dallas, 10/30/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Aidan Gray unveiled its new four-story, 7,000-square-foot showroom at High Point Market this fall. Located at 201 Main Street, on the corner of Kivett and Main, the showroom featured Aidan Gray designs focusing on the company’s latest inspirations. The one-of-a-kind layout of the historic building proved to highlight the unique presence of Aidan Gray pieces.

High Point is located in North Carolina and is known for furniture and textiles and is also known as the “Furniture Capital of the World.”  High Point Market happens every 6 months and attracts over 75,000people – furniture buyers, interior designers, media and distributers.

·         Photos of the showroom can be found here

·         Video of the showroom can be found here

“With four floors of lifestyle decor, furniture, antique accessories and the best internationally-inspired lighting collection at High Point, Aidan Gray’s new, impossibly chic showroom is sure to be The Destination for designers in the know visiting the USA’s largest furniture fair. On my next trip to High Point Market,T it will be my first stop!” says Toma Clark Haines, CEO and global tastemaker, The Antiques Diva & Co European Tours.

Pam Anglin, of Antique Shops of Jackson, was also impressed with the new showroom. “I loved how from floor to floor, you could absorb the progression of light in a truly unique setting for such a fabulous collection. Especially as a first-time attendee to High Point Market, I really didn’t know what to expect. I felt like I was walking into inspiration.”

Aidan Gray founder Randal Weeks was excited to share an eclectic collection with customers in High Point.

“Our collection in High Point offers something new to our customer base. They can still expect us to stay true to our brand, but we’ve created some great designs that showcase an edgier style. We think High Point gives us the chance to let these pieces speak for themselves.”

Anglin adds, “I sell a lot of Aidan Gray and that’s because Randal (Weeks) doesn’t do ordinary. His style has its own identity.”

Recognized for its European grandeur style, Aidan Gray showcased a new collection that reflects a gradual evolution of design. With accent furniture playing a greater role in the collection, the showroom featured a prominent array of tables in all sizes as well as dressers, benches, chairs and accent pieces. Aidan Gray also offered a unique display of signature home décor including candle fixtures, lighting and garden pieces. The collection, inspired by European cathedrals and distinctive gardens, stayed true to the Aidan Gray spirit and tone.

Iris Boswell, director of new membership and programs for the High Point Chamber of Commerce, noted at the ribbon cutting, “We are always happy to invite companies to develop and grow in High Point. I know that Randal and his family are investing their time and focus on High Point with year-round infrastructure, and we couldn’t be more proud to welcome Aidan Gray to the neighborhood!”

Since 2003, Aidan Gray has been expanding business around the country with representative groups in Atlanta; Dallas and McKinney, Texas; and Northern and Southern California. With core values focusing on textural finish, graceful lines and understated elegance, all of Aidan Gray’s designs allow customers to express their own style. Aidan Gray’s motto – “our details, your style” – was surely reflected in High Point’s showroom.

Landmark Huntington’s drug trial begins

Huntington_s_Disease_Association_logo.png

, 10/29/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

U.S. – The first drug with the potential to correct a defect that causes Huntington’s disease is now being tested. As reported by BBC News, the landmark study is being led by doctors at the University College London.

The Huntington’s Disease Association has regarded the trial as “very exciting.” As noted in the BBC report, current medication provides treatment for the symptoms of Huntington’s, but does or prevent or slow progression of damage to the brain.

With the disease, the brain produces a mutant protein that destroys brain cells. With progression of it, patients experience changes in behavior and cognitive functioning, and life expectancy after a diagnosis can be limited to 10 years.

Cath Stanley, the chief executive of the Huntington’s Disease Association, is quoted a stating of the current study of the drug, which was developed by ISIS-pharmaceuticals. “There’s a lot of different trials and avenues of research, but this is the most exciting… This is the first, potential, major breakthrough in terms of delaying symptoms of Huntington’s disease, it’s such an exciting step forward.”

TVM Litigation Update: Defense Verdicts Because ‘Pain Is Just Pain’

greg.jpg

Sacramento, CA, 10/30/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Two consecutive wins for mesh manufacturers Ethicon and Boston Scientific are having a stinging effect both on plaintiff attorneys and the most injured sufferers of the transvaginal mesh debacle.  A failure to satisfy the burden of  ‘Specific Causation’ in both Winebarger, et al. v. Boston Scientific and Cavness v. Ethicon is evidence that jurors are demanding more evidence for proving that the device is defectively designed.

‘Specific Causation’ is evidence of why the particular design defect of the medical device caused the specific injury to the Plaintiff.  The Reasonable Juror understands the basic proposition that anytime a device is implanted in the body, there will be a risk of pain related to the device and the body to some extent will react against the device since it is a foreign substance.  The Reasonable Juror will see an injured woman walking into the courtroom looking quite well but complaining of severe debilitating and disabling pelvic pain.  The injured will not be missing an extremity, she won’t be in a wheelchair, and she won’t have any obvious bodily injury. The Reasonable Juror in the above cases were demanding more medical evidence than the attorneys representing the injured women were prepared to present to overcome the burden of proving ‘Specific Causation’.

Injured women must understand what the Reasonable Juror understands and they must understand that ‘Pain Is Just Pain’ to the Reasonable Juror and any device implanted in the body can cause pain.  The Reasonable Juror is demanding more from the Plaintiffs.    

The Reasonable Juror wants to understand what specific structure in the body is injured?  They want to understand why the device injured that specific structure?  They want to understand what bodily functions these injured structures are responsible for?  They want to understand what treatments has the patient received to help with pain caused by injury to these specific structures?  They want to know what treatments are required over a lifetime to treat the injury to the specific structure?  They want to understand the disability related to the injury that was directly caused by the design defect?

Injured women must understand that a well developed vaginal mesh case takes two to three years to develop from a medical standpoint.  It takes specialized care, it takes targeted treatments, and it takes a rational treatment plan documented to the injured woman’s life expectancy.

If there are symptoms of Pudendal Neuralgia the injured must travel to the experts in the field for diagnosis and treatment.  If there are symptoms of  Myofascial Pain the injured must be evaluated by clinicians with the skills to both treat and diagnose the problem.  If symptoms and disability related to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is present it must be diagnosed and treated.  Only with specific diagnoses the Reasonable Juror will be able to understand why the device is defective, how it puts nerves in peril, how it puts muscles of the pelvic floor in peril, and how key functions involving sexuality, mobility, bowel and bladder function are compromised by the multiple design defects.  Otherwise, ‘Pain Is Just Pain’.

Early in 2013, I had the opportunity to participate in focus groups that brought in twelve Reasonable Jurors from the street and it was quite clear that  ‘Pain Is Just Pain’ to the Reasonable Juror.  Only after there is a diagnosis of which structure is damaged using targeted treatments can models and videos of the female pelvis be utilized to describe how the design defect damaged the specific structure and caused pain.  Only if the injured woman is medically worked up and treated over time by the leaders in the field of pelvic pain will the evidence for proving ‘Specific Causation’ be available.

For the most injured, the message must continue that you must seek the care of the experts in the field for both health and the necessary proof needed in litigation.   For the attorneys who see pelvic pain on a medical record, ‘Pain Is Just Pain’ to the Reasonable Juror and these clients must find the experts in the field.

Tanzania Welcomes Climbers to Africa’s Seven Summit

Lone Tree, 10/30/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

TANZANIA, AFRICA–Mount Kilimanjaro holds prestige as one of the majestic seven summits, and its motherland now welcomes climbers from across the globe to scale its slopes before the glaciers disappear forever.

Zara Tours is the number one Kilimanjaro outfitter in the country, leading thousands up the peak that represents Africa in the assembly of the seven summits, the tallest mountains from each of the seven continents. As the world’s tallest walkable mountain and Africa’s highest point, it is still considered by many the most accessible of the peaks, as it does not require previous experience or special mountain climbing gear. Zara Tours employs the dozens of guides and porters to lead the way safely across a variety of routes that keep climbers safely progressing.

Record-seeking tourists and avid climbers alike travel up Kilimanjaro for the full experience of its snow-capped splendor. But, while still a breathtaking experience, the chill of the ice has been greatly reduced. And experts and visitors alike realize that the glaciers that have stood for centuries are now all but disappeared. Many experts anticipate the ice caps to be gone altogether by the year 2030, leaving precious little time to experience the mountain in all its glory.

As concern over political unrest across the continent rises, Tanzania has seen far fewer tourists grace her shores. But now, thanks to the efforts of the Tanzanian government, interested internationals are reminded that Tanzania is a beacon of beauty far from the center of the conflicts mentioned in the media. Its allure commands the interest of people from across the globe, keeping the small country alive both through agriculture and the tourism it fosters.

The mountain remains a pristine picture of the spirit of Tanzania, the height of which over 25,000 people attempt to achieve each year, although only 30% make it to the very top of Uhuru Peak when climb with others, here 97.7% make it to Uhuru Peak when you climb with Zara Tours. There is no better time than now to join fellow adventurers in an experience of a lifetime, don’t wait to witness Mount Kilimanjaro from storied base to celebrated peak.

About ZARA TOURS

ZARA TOURS, founded in 1987, is currently the No. 1 Kilimanjaro outfitter in Tanzania and one of the largest safari operators in the country. Proud to be known as one of the best operators in the region with a reputation for providing an exceptional, unforgettable and safe experience, ZARA TOURS owns and operates two hotels and four tented camps, has 88 safari and climbing expert guides who speak English, German and Spanish, and a fleet of fully-equipped vehicles that take tourists on safari adventures or treks up Mt.

King Mohammed VI Lays Out His Vision For A New African-Indian partnership

Bethesda , Maryland, 10/30/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

HM King Mohammed VI arrived this Thursday to  the “Indira Ghandia” stadium to participate in the third India-Africa Forum held in New Delhi from October 26-29, 2015.

On this occasion , the King delivered an important speech reflecting his vision of the India-Africa Strategic Partnership.

In his address,  the Monarch stressed that Morocco has become the top African investor in West Africa and the second  biggest in the continent, noting that South-South cooperation is now a  “pressing need”.

The Sovereign also underlined that both at the bilateral level and in the framework  of triangular cooperation, Morocco is keen to carry out tangible projects in  productive areas which boost development, create jobs and have a direct impact  on the citizens’ lives.

HM the King went on that the summit is “an opportunity for us to assess  South-South cooperation, which is the cornerstone of the African-Indian  partnership”, stressing that it should serve “as a platform to lay the  foundations for an efficient, solidarity-based, multidimensional South-South  cooperation model, through which we can make optimal use of the resources and  potential available in our countries”.

“Our cooperation therefore has to turn the page on the legacy of the past  and seek to serve our countries’ strategic interests”, the Sovereign  recommended, insisting that South-South cooperation “is neither a mere slogan  nor a political luxury”.

“This is a pressing need”, said the Sovereign, highlighting “the scale of  the challenges faced.”

“Indeed, we cannot rely on conventional patterns of cooperation that today  no longer help us respond to the growing needs of our peoples”, pointed out HM  the King

Furthermore , HM King Mohammed VI called countries  of the South to trust themselves and invest their assets and skills in the  pursuit of shared progress for their peoples and thus catch up with emerging  countries.

“Just as, on an earlier occasion, I pointed out that Africa should learn  to trust Africa, today, from this rostrum, I would like to call upon the  countries of the South to trust themselves and to invest their assets and  skills in the pursuit of shared progress for their peoples and thus catch up  with emerging countries”, said the Sovereign.

After recalling that Africa’s adhesion to a number of bilateral and  continental cooperation forums which are quite useful, although “some of them  suffer from overlapping and imbalance, which often result in a lack of  commitment and affect their efficiency”, HM the King noted that “Today, Africa  deserves fair partnerships, rather than unbalanced relationships and  conditional support.”

“As I indicated in my address in Abidjan, Africa does not need assistance  as much as it needs mutually beneficial partnerships as well as human and  social projects”, the Sovereign stated noting that “securing a bright future  for our peoples is a responsibility that we must shoulder.”

“Our countries should continue to work together and uphold the principle of  solidarity in order to serve their interests, otherwise, we will, once again,  miss a historic opportunity”, insisted the Sovereign who warned that “this  would be tantamount to a leap into the unknown.

HM The King also voiced “appreciation to India and its Prime Minister for  making sure this Forum Summit is different from previous ones in terms of its  objectives and general orientation as well as the nature of its recommendations  and follow-up measures.”

In addition ,  HM King Mohammed VI called African  countries to adopted a “comprehensive approach rooted in close cooperation with  India”.

“Given the mix of development challenges and unprecedented terrorist  threats they face, the Member Countries of this Forum should adopt a  comprehensive approach rooted in close cooperation with India”, the Sovereign  said .

After expressing Morocco’s readiness to set up “a joint working group to  ensure coordination and information sharing”, HM the King said he firmly  believes that the “promising” African-Indian partnership can grow and prosper  thanks to the complementary nature of resources and skills, and “thus help us  achieve our objectives and serve our peoples.”

The sovereign also argued that security and stability are the bedrock of  development, insisting that “without them, our countries cannot achieve social  progress nor undertake meaningful development initiatives.

HM King Mohammed VI expressed “appreciation” for  India’s “constructive” position on the Moroccan Sahara issue and support to the  UN process to resolve this artificial conflict.

“I should like to express our appreciation for the Republic of India’s  constructive position concerning the Moroccan Sahara issue and for supporting  the UN process to resolve this artificial conflict”, said the Sovereign on  Thursday at the opening of the third India-Africa forum summit in New Delhi.

HM the King regretted, on the other hand, “that some countries have been  unable to move forward, they continue repeating obsolete discourses and theses  that date back more than 40 years.”

The Sovereign also expressed admiration for India’s “pioneering  development model” that has enabled it to become one the emerging global  powers, noting that this evolution makes “India’s ambition to play a key role  within UN agencies in charge of global peace and security all the more  legitimate.”

HM the King further lauded India’s “balanced, responsible foreign policy  based on respect for international legitimacy and for the territorial integrity  of states, as well as on the defense of developing countries’ interests and  just causes”, praising Morocco-India “outstanding relations” dating back to the  time of “His Majesty King Mohammed VI – may he rest in peace – and of the great  leader Jawaharlal Nehru, who were both engaged in the struggle for the  liberation and independence of African States.”

The Sovereign recollected “fond memories” of his first visit to India in  1983 to lead the Moroccan delegation to the Conference of the Non-Aligned  Movement and also of his first official visit here in 2001, stressing that  Morocco is looking forward to “launching joint initiatives with India, within  the framework of this Forum, in areas which are a priority for our peoples and  in which our two countries have gained extensive expertise.”

“An example of fruitful partnership between our two countries is our  cooperation in the field of phosphates and their derivatives, which we seek to  expand to include food security programs, putting our know-how at the disposal  of some African countries”, pointed out HM the King who also voiced Morocco’s  resolve to expand prospects for bilateral cooperation, particularly in such  sectors as agriculture, the pharmaceutical industry, research in science and  technology and the training of managerial staff, making sure we build on that  experience to serve African peoples.

Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer Rand Spear Discussing Your Rights

thumb-3.jpg

Philadelphia, PA, 10/29/2015 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer Rand Spear Discussing Your Rights with a Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall victims must take it seriously because serious injuries could result and legal rights need to be protected, according to attorney Rand Spear. Most common types of slip and fall cases have following questions:

 

  • How Much Money is My Philadelphia PA Slip and Fall Case Worth?

  • What To Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

  • Do I Have a Valid Slip and Fall Case?

  • Do I Actually Need a Lawyer for My Philadelphia Slip and Fall Case?

  • Who is Responsible for Slip and Fall Accidents?

  • Philadelphia PA Slip and Fall Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and when you least expect it. Serious injuries could result and depending on the circumstances, there may be legal liability by the responsible party for the harm done and financial losses due to the fall. Rand Spear, Philadelphia’s accident attorney, gives the public facts and advice on what to do after an injury due to a slip and fall in a recent Philadelphia Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer Rand Spear Video on YouTube

 

Fall has started and winter will soon be here. Rand says winter is hazardous for pedestrians because weather plays a big role in creating unsafe conditions that can result in a fall. “Winter is especially dangerous. Ice, snow, unshoveled sidewalks. That’s a very big part of it,” Rand says. Other contributing factors to falls on sidewalks could be that it’s uneven and broken up by tree roots.

 

He says that in his experience many fall victims don’t get medical attention quickly enough. “A lot of people don’t want to go to the doctor, especially in this day and age because of the expense,” Rand says, despite the fact many fall injuries could be very serious.

 

“They could have a tear in their shoulder, a tear in their knee and end up with a fracture,” he says, “When you fall it really could create a long term problem. That’s why it’s important to go to the hospital, get prompt medical care, find out what’s wrong so the doctors can really help you and it doesn’t have to linger any longer than it has to.”

 

Rand says these types of cases are similar to other negligence cases in that doing an investigation and finding the facts are critical. “We like to get photos. We want to see exactly what happened. We look at all the client’s medical records,” he says, “If it doesn’t settle we file a lawsuit, proceed to a hearing, have the client testify about their fall, their damages, their injuries and how it affected their life.” Possible defendants could be property owners, property managers, tenants or government entities.

 

Because it can be difficult to prove liability in a slip and fall case Rand says he needs help from clients. “Proving the defect and that it was the source of the fall is a challenge but something we need to do to prevail and recover money damages. That’s why it’s so important to take prompt action. Take a photograph, take some pictures with your cell phone,” Rand advises, “Preservation of evidence is so important in slip and fall accidents.”

 

Slip and fall victims need to take quick action for several reasons, including,

 

·       Video surveillance images may show your fall and be obtained from the police or private businesses near the scene of the accident, but they may be erased if a request for them comes too late.

·       The state or a municipality may have played a role in creating the unsafe condition. While injury lawsuits can normally be filed within two years of the accident, a notice of claim to a government entity must be filed within six months in Pennsylvania and ninety days in New Jersey.

 

If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident, get medical attention and to protect your legal rights contact slip and fall attorney Rand Spear’s office at 888-373-4LAW. He helps those injured in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

ADDISON (Oct. 28, 2015) – Solis Mammography, is getting an influx of calls from women asking if their mammograms are covered by insurance in light of the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) new recommendations announced last week. Solis wants to reassure all women that insurance coverage has not immediately changed, and that its radiologists strongly recommend that women still begin getting an annual mammogram at 40 (unless high risk factors exist which might cause her to start earlier than 40.)

Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest independent provider of mammography services, has centers in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Phoenix, Columbus, Ohio, and Greensboro, N.C., markets.

“We want the public to know that currently, a standard 2D screening mammogram is covered at 100 percent by almost all healthcare plans,” says Connie Oliver, Solis VP of marketing and client relations. “Last week, the ACS recommended that women between the ages of 40-44 not get mammograms. This has confused many patients who worry these recommendations give insurance companies the right to deny payment for mammograms to women under 45.”

What the community needs to know about the out-of-pocket costs for mammograms, as it stands today:

  • A standard 2D screening mammogram is covered at 100 percent by almost all insurance plans.
  • 3D screening mammograms, also known as tomosynthesis, are 100 percent covered by Medicare and by select major insurance providers including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. Coverage by other providers vary by plan and policy. If a 3D mammogram is not covered, out-of-pocket costs at Solis Mammography range between $50 and $100.
  • As of today, the ACS announcement has not had any impact on mammography coverage by insurance providers. However, that risk does exist in the future if the public and the healthcare community do not speak out. Solis Mammography does everything it can to ensure the insurance landscape does not create an unfavorable financial hardship for women who proactively want to take ownership of their health.

If there are other specific coverage questions, Solis recommends that women call their health insurance provider. Or, Solis representatives are always available for questions at 866.717.2551.
