Is fast shipping making the roads more dangerous?

It's proudly touted as a perk with major online sellers: free two-day shipping. Buy it today and it will be on your front step two days from now.

In the past, people didn't like online shopping because of the delay. Waiting seven to 10 days just felt too long. With two-day shipping, though, the game changed. Now, unless someone was considering driving to a brick and mortar store that very night, it's actually just as fast to buy something online.

Urgency can lead to medical mistakes

If you've ever spent time in a hospital, you know that medical professionals often appear to be in a hurry. They work in a fast-paced environment. They rush from room to room, from procedure to procedure. When a call comes in, they hurry to the next appointment.

This is even more pronounced in an emergency room or another part of a hospital dealing with emergency procedures. Things like this are impossible to predict and harder to prepare for. Doctors cannot count on a set schedule and have to react to the current crisis.

Documentary explores reasons for medical errors

How much do you trust your doctor? How comfortable do you feel going in for surgery? Are you confident that the medical team will give you the best possible results?

These days, people are starting to wonder, despite advances in medical science. The reason is that reports have shown just how common serious mistakes still are. In the Information Age, it's easy for statistics and stories to make the rounds, and people generally do not go to the hospital with the naive idea that the staff has such a high level of professionalism that no one will make a mistake.

7 signs that you need to break up with your business partner

You and your business partner have worked together for a few years now, and you want this business to thrive. You're not sure if staying with the same partner is the key to making that happen. You've seen too many red flags, and you think it may be time to end this professional relationship.

It's a tough move to make. You both got into this together. You wish you could go back in time to the day when you launched and everything felt positive and optimistic. But you can't ignore your concerns, which could ruin everything you worked for.

Tips to help reduce the odds of a medication mistake

When you get a new prescription medication, do you know what the pills should look like? Or do you trust that the little orange vial that you get from the pharmacy is the right one and take the contents as directed?

We all know that we should understand exactly what we're taking, but the reality is that a lot of people assume that the doctor got it right, they assume that the pharmacy got it right and they assume that they can take that medication without worry.

5 critical driving distractions

You've heard it over and over again: Distracted driving kills. It causes accidents and takes lives every day. The news all across New Jersey is filled with the names of people who lost their lives or suffered serious injuries because someone else got distracted behind the wheel.

But what are these distractions, exactly? What types of behavior should you avoid or watch out for in others? A few key examples include:

What can you do about improper medical records disclosure?

Protecting your privacy may seem like a minor matter to some, but when it comes to confidential medical records, breaches of privacy are often quite serious. In today's increasingly connected world, it is easier than ever to share information, and harder than ever to keep our personal information secure.

This is especially true when it comes to medical records. For most patients, the advances in collating and sharing medical records between care providers is a crucial part of maintaining good health or fighting an ailment, but what if someone improperly discloses your sensitive medical records? What steps can you take to fight back against it once the cat is out of the bag?

Does your surgeon look too tired to be safe?

If you want to ensure that you're safe through your surgery, it may be wise to take a close look at your surgeon when you arrive. Do they look too tired to safely operate? It's a real concern and must be taken seriously.

After all, trusting someone to do surgery means trusting them with your life. Mistakes, even non-fatal ones, can lead to complications that haunt you forever. That's not a risk you want to take, especially because your surgeon is just too tired to operate.

One common way that doctors miss cancer

While cancer awareness campaigns do a lot of good, the reality is that the general public is already fairly well aware of the danger cancer poses. It's one of the leading killers in the United States, and it has many forms: skin cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer. Most people know someone who has the disease or they have lost a friend or family member to it.

Even so, doctors still miss cancer all the time. Wouldn't you think that something this common and this serious would never go unnoticed?

Does your child have cerebral palsy? Early signs

Cerebral palsy is one of those disorders that does not always show up immediately. Doctors can identify potential risks and figure out which children may be more likely to have the disorder, but you may not know at the moment of birth if that is true.

As such, it is important to look for early signs and symptoms so that you can better prepare moving forward. Below are a few common symptoms to note:
