Health care workers in Arizona hospitals increasingly depend on electronic health records to manage patient care and pharmaceutical prescriptions. Researchers have been analyzing user errors within these systems to identify ways to improvement them and avoid medical errors.
Wrong-patient errors and wrong-medication errors represent two prevalent sources of mistakes within an electronic workflow.
Many Arizona hospitalizations are triggered by a diagnosis of cellulitis. The bacterial skin infection occurs when a person has a wound, cut or skin irritation that becomes infected by streptococcus or staphylococcus. One of the most dangerous forms of cellulitis is a methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, infection.
Doctors in Arizona and other parts of the country have been slowly moving into the world of computer-assisted diagnosis. As the technology matures and continues to prove itself, more and more medical professionals are willing to trust the interpretation of manifest symptoms to computerized databases and algorithms.
When you hear DUI, you likely think of drinking and driving, but “under the influence” has more than one meaning. Arizona has rejected the passage of Prop 205, the law that would have allowed recreational marijuana, but it doesn’t remove the instances of drugged driving and allegations of this behavior.
As the use of marijuana has become more widespread and legalized, a great deal of attention has been focused on its effects on drivers and vehicle accidents. Arizona DUI laws do not in general differentiate between marijuana impairment and being under the influence of alcohol.
