Lowering the likelihood of errors in radiology

Radiologists in Pennsylvania, as elsewhere, often suffer from long shifts and an excessive workload. When radiologists read an image, a cognitive bias may lead them to only look for those things they were trained to look for. All of these can contribute to missed diagnoses and other errors. Missed diagnoses resulting from a false-positive reading make up a startling 30% of all diagnoses involving CT scans and MRIs.

Is the scaffolding you are on really safe?

Nearly every Pennsylvania construction worker will spend at least some time on scaffolding during his or her career. You may trust that it is constructed properly and adheres to regulations, safety standards and requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration -- at the very least. Unfortunately, OSHA's third most common citation involves improper scaffolding.

Nurses are vulnerable to making mistakes

Nurses in Pennsylvania and throughout the country take pride in doing their job without making mistakes. However, they will eventually make an error, and that error could have negative consequences for a patient. Each year, 1.5 million Americans are harmed by medication errors, and medication is generally given to a patient by a nurse. To avoid such a mistake, a nurse should confirm a patient's identity and physical characteristics before administering a drug.
