Radiology errors and how to reduce their likelihood

Residents of Hawaii who have an X-ray done may not have to worry much about the possibility of misdiagnosis, but those who undergo an MRI or CT scan are at a higher risk. Errors from false-positive readings can occur in 30% of diagnoses involving these two radiology exams. Radiology errors are among the most serious with 80% of missed diagnosis claims in radiology ending in either permanent injury or death according to Coverys.

Understanding the severity of birth injuries

Living in a first-world nation, you would assume giving birth in any reputable hospital would be fine. However, the United States has one of the highest infant mortality rates out of any first-world country. The U.S. sees 5.9 infant deaths out of every 1,000 births compared to 3.9 deaths out of 1,000 births in other developed nations. 

Report calls for changes to protect children in sports

Revelations about the prevalence of sexual abuse in elite sports, especially those involving children, have shocked people in Hawaii and across the country. The sexual abuse scandals in gymnastics and other sports have led to calls for major changes in how these sports are managed and governed, especially as many vulnerable young people participate intensively in these activities. Congressional leaders issued an investigative report criticizing the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee and USA Gymnastics for their inadequate safeguards to protect athletes.
