Everyone procrastinates to one degree or another. For most people, it involves minor things such as putting off raking leaves or washing the car or visiting an optometrist. Sometimes procrastination can have serious consequences, however, as a professor of pharmacy law and policy at the University of Kentucky recently made clear.

How to prevent medical malpractice?

We hope and expect that at each hospital in the Covington and Cincinnati area, there are regular conversations about how to prevent medical malpractice. As we all know, medical negligence by doctors, nurses and hospitals leads to an unknown number of deaths each year in our nation. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association said physician and hospital negligence is the third leading cause of death in the country.

Children's dentist running "house of horrors"?

When many people think of medication errors, they likely think of medication interactions or allergies. For some people, however, medical conditions are what dictates what they can safely take. In some cases, even common over-the-counter medications can prove deadly. Such was the case for one man who was arrested in Carter County.
