Scabies infestations put nursing home residents in danger

As other states do, Georgia has a regulatory agency that provides oversight to nursing home facilities. Such agencies should investigate reports of hazards and safety violations and ensure that these are corrected. According to the Washington Post, the Georgia Department of Community Health was notified of more than one scabies outbreak at a for-profit nursing home facility.

FMCSA compliance data identifies truck driver risks

Truckers on the roadways of Georgia are held to standards and regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The program, known as Compliance, Safety, Accountability, or CSA, gathers data from various sources so that the FMCSA can review this and give large truck operators a compliance score based on their safety violations, inspections and crashes.

Risks associated with driving a vehicle for the first time

There is a myriad of factors that can make a car collision more probable, from intoxication to ignoring other traffic laws such as failing to yield or staying under the speed limit. However, some less common factors may also be cause for concern, such as driving a vehicle for the first time. When some people get behind the wheel in a new car, or a new type of car (such as someone who operates a pickup when they have never driven a truck before), the likelihood of a collision may be higher.

Breaking your fall: What you need to know about wrist fractures

People who slip and fall on a slick surface in a Georgia restaurant, store or other commercial establishment will probably throw out a hand to try to catch themselves. This is the most common response, and Johns Hopkins Medicine notes that it is the reason that distal radius fractures occur more than any other broken bone.
