I say “Yes, we tell folks with dementia about the death of their spouse….at least once”

It is a tricky decision whether to tell patients who have dementia that their husband or wife of many years has passed away. 
A new study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, found no significant correlation between high sodium intake (more than 2,300 milligrams daily) and an increased risk of death among adults in their 70s who were followed for a 10-year period. Current U.S. guidelines recommend that everyone aged 2 and up consume no more than 2,300 milligrams per day (mg/daily). That’s about a teaspoon of salt (which is about 40 percent sodium). These guidelines also urge certain groups — people aged 51 and up, African-Americans of any age, and people with high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease — to restrict their sodium intake even more, to below 1,500 mg/daily. 
 In a nutshell:

1) Tamiflu reduced influenza symptoms by only half a day- from 7 to 6.3 days
2) A complete cure was achieved within 2-3 days within nearly 90% of control subjects using Elderberry extract

Tamiflu and Relenza, the most commonly prescribed antivirals used to shorten the duration of the influenza virus have been shown in an independent study by the Cochrane Institute to be ineffective- Tamiflu (the antiviral drug oseltamivir) shortens symptoms of influenza by half a day, but there is no good evidence to support claims that it reduces admissions to hospital or complications of influenza.  
The following video reports of an 8 year old girl’s life that is saved by a school nurse’s quick actions and knowledge of the use of  an AED or Automated External Defibrillator. 
Ebola can be spread through an asymptomatic person and 13 percent of those infected with Ebola do not have fever. Ebola is not a new disease and we have a lot of data and knowledge of this disease from years of experience with it.  As we keep hearing the screening guidelines for Ebola as issued from our own CDC are based in “fact”. These “facts”, as reported by the CDC do seem to be evolving and changing frequently and there seems to be some important “facts” that are being left out of the equation.

Currently the CDC states that so long as an individual's temperature does not exceed 101.5 degrees and there are no visible symptoms of Ebola, health authorities say it should be assumed the person is not infectious. 
Jails, Prisons – What’s the diff?
If you don’t work in corrections you might not know that there is a big difference between a jail and a prison. The type of healthcare services you provide and the patient community is varied – although there are similar components to each.
Bullying, sometimes called harassment, can be defined as persistent health endangering personal abuse that humiliates and demeans a person.  In many cases in the workplace this type of behavior is overlooked or downplayed as personality conflicts, or simply “attitude” issues.
Nationwide, spending on health care and on corrections is putting serious pressure on state budgets. Medicaid—the largest component of states' health care spending—has been the fastest-growing part of state expenditures over the past two decades, with corrections a close second.

Inmates' health, the public's safety, and taxpayers' total corrections bills are all affected by how states manage prison health care services. Effective treatment of inmates' physical and mental ailments, including substance abuse, improves the well-being of prisoners and can reduce the likelihood that they will commit new crimes or violate probation once released.
Alcohol dementia is the most common form of substance-induced persisting dementia. Let's find out more about this preventable form of memory loss.

First, what do we mean by heavy drinking?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), for men, heavy drinking is generally defined as consuming an average of more than 2 drinks per day. For women, heavy drinking is typically defined as consuming an average of more than 1 drink per day.
If you work in a jail, it is in your best interest to become an expert at assessing and intervening in alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS). It is the most dangerous type of substance withdrawal and the most prevalent. The recently published Behind Bars II: Substance Abuse and America’s Prison Population  identifies 85% of all inmates have substance involvement. Over half of American inmates are incarcerated due in some way to alcohol. Once behind bars, withdrawal begins with potential dangers.
