Asbestos exposure might have occurred at Ohio high school

A burst pipe led to an unsettling discovery at one Ohio high school. An untold number of students could suffer from asbestos exposure after the toxic substance was discovered in the school building. Cancer and other asbestos-related diseases typically take a significant amount of time to develop, and students who recently attended the school might not be aware of the full effects of the exposure.

Popular anti-nausea medicine linked to drug injuries

Prescription medication has the power to change a person's life for the better. With the right medication, a patient can experience less pain and injury and can even have a more fulfilling life. Most physicians in Ohio prescribe medications to patients who they believe can benefit from its use, but few are aware of the serious risks and drug injuries associated with certain prescription drugs.

Prince's death shines light on fentanyl's drug injuries

Prescription medication safety sounds as if it should be a rather straightforward matter. If a drug is both effective and unlikely to cause harm to the patient when taken as prescribed, many people in Ohio perceive it to be a safe medication. However, dangerous medication and drug injuries are far more complex than this, which was recently demonstrated by the fentanyl-related death of pop singer Prince.

Food and Drug Administration blamed for ongoing scope use

Despite safeguards that are supposed to prevent defective medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs from ever reaching the general public, dangerous products continue to sneak through quality control. It is not unreasonable to expect the Food and Drug Administration to act in a timely manner once these dangers are discovered, yet it is, apparently, not adhering to its responsibility to Ohio consumers. Inaction by the FDA has reportedly resulted in patients being repeatedly exposed to dangerous bacteria.

FDA alert: Powdered gloves pose risk

Health professionals in Ohio wear latex surgical gloves in order to protect both themselves and patients during a variety of procedures and examinations.

The FDA is now moving to ban the powdered version of surgical gloves in order to protect a greater number of patients.

Investigators claim that an untold number of patients were put directly at risk by Boston Scientific Corporation's unsavory business practices. The Food and Drug Administration is currently leading the main investigation into the resin that the company used to make its surgical vaginal mesh product. Female patients all across the United States -- including in Ohio -- were seriously injured because the resin used in the mesh was actually counterfeit.

Have you suffered from drug injuries in Ohio?

Ohio residents who purchase pharmaceuticals have the right to expect that the products they are using have been tested and approved for safety.

Such an injury can range from mild to tragic, with some dangerous products resulting in death to those who have used them.

Pharmaceutical litigation could follow EpiPen recall

Food and even some environmental allergies pose a life-threatening risk to those who suffer from them. Epinephrine injectors -- commonly referred to as EpiPens -- are often the first line of defense when a person begins to experience an anaphylactic reaction. However, a defect in a commonly used brand of EpiPen put people in Ohio and across the country in serious danger of not receiving their medication in the event of an allergic reaction, and could possibly lead to an onslaught of pharmaceutical litigation.

Cholesterol-lowering statins linked to drug injuries in patients

Statins are some of the most popularly prescribed medications in America, with millions of people in Ohio and across the country taking this medication daily in order to help lower their cholesterol levels. High cholesterol is well understood to increase the chance of suffering serious health afflictions like a stroke or heart attack, but taking medication to lower those levels might be doing more harm than good. Drug injuries associated with statin use is beginning to surface, with those affected suffering from an astronomically high risk of death.

Johnson & Johnson allegedly hid Risperdal related drug injuries

For nearly anyone in Ohio who requires the aid of a prescription medication, this information can play a key role in their overall health management. When a patient or consumer suffers serious or severe drug injuries from an undisclosed health risk, the outcome can be devastating.
