How Do We Detect the Atypical Ebola Case

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.

Probiotics May Protect Pregnant Women from Mercury and Arsenic

Study provides the first positive evidence for the use of probiotics to combat toxic heavy metal exposure in vulnerable human populations. Mercury and arsenic stand as two of the world’s largest dietary threats. Pregnant women especially, who must care for two bodies simultaneously, may fall ill as a result of tainted fish and contaminated water.

Employee Training and Retention: The Debate between Expense and Investment

Many employers do not provide adequate training or employee development to realize the advantages of proper training. Most employers have some form of training implemented for their new employees and some even have programs designed for ongoing employee development. If asked, many employers, if not all, will say that training and employee development is important. But when truly evaluated, many employers do not provide adequate training or employee development to realize the advantages of proper training.

The disconnect lies in the fact that training and employee development comes at a price -financial resources, human resources and time. Employers view training as a cost or expense rather than an investment. They are hesitant, and some even resistant, to spend too many resources on an employee that may take that training elsewhere.

Legal History of Correctional Nursing – Part II

Once again, I refer heavily to William J. Rold’s excellent and understandable article in the Journal of Correctional Health Care (JCHC).
