The medical world can be highly frustrating for patients to navigate. Between scheduling appointments and trying to explain symptoms to the doctor, many patients feel like good treatment is out of their grasp.
When you visit a physician or health professional, you expect top-notch care. You’re ill, you have symptoms that have affected your health, and you want answers; the right answers that will lead you on the road to recovery. A knowledgeable doctor and staff will help, but sometimes that doesn’t always occur.
Driving on Tennessee’s interstates poses a number of safety hazards. With their vast size and incredible weight, commercial trucks are one of the greatest threats to vehicle drivers. A study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that approximately 55 percent of commercial trucking accidents are caused by truck drivers. Therefore, almost half of trucking accidents could be avoided if vehicle drivers responded differently. How should you be safely sharing Tennessee’s highways with trucks?
When we go to the doctor’s office or a hospital, we expect correct diagnoses and effective treatments for a condition if needed. While doctors are usually able to help, they are not perfect. They may make mistakes that could lead to even more medical problems for you. Doctors have a responsibility to care for you properly but you can also take steps to help prevent errors.
