Not true. A civil lawsuit in New York has no effect on whether a doctor does or does not lose his license to practice medicine. In order for a New York doctor to lose his license, the New york State Department of Health investigates a complaint of wrongdoing. After extensive investigation and after a hearing where the physician gets to explain what happened and why, the Department of Health reaches their own conclusions about whether treatment was rendered in accordance with good medical care or whether there were deficiencies.
Iodine tablets come in a brown bottle to help protect them from large temperature changes. Keeping the tablets dry helps them remain more stable. The tablets will last for up to four years unopened, and seem to work more quickly if they are fresh. They degrade with air, water, or light exposure, but since they are inexpensive, they can easily be replaced every year. The manufacturer of the tablets suggests against switching to a smaller bottle. So, with that warning, if you make the switch, be sure to use a tight, brown bottle that keeps the tablets dry. Even the original cotton in the bottle is meant to absorb any moisture that may be present. If you re-package the tablets to a smaller bottle, try to keep a little of the cotton.
The Parks Department began the weekly training at the beach last year with little fanfare to test the waters. The experiment worked, attracting some 45-50 swimmers weekly, Wakeman said.
The weight of a bottle of iodine tablets is 1.1 ounces. If you purchase the PA Plus that neutralizes the taste and odor, you’ll double the weight. If you re-package the tablets into an one-dram (1/8 oz.) brown bottle, the weight of the bottle is just .2 ounces and will hold 40 tablets, for a total weight of only .3 ounces. If you want to add your own vitamin C and keep the weight down, remember that powders in small ziplock bags can get in the re-sealable closures of the bags and make them difficult to use. You may want to use the smallest, lightest plastic container you can find.
A total of ten counties in Illinois have reported having positive mosquito samples this year. Those counties are Cook, DuPage, Jackson, Lake, Lee, Macoupin, Saline, Sangamon, St. Clair and Tazewell. Three counties, Cook, Dupage, and Sangamon, have had positive bird samples. The East Side Health District collected a positive West Nile virus mosquito sample in East St. Louis on August 9 and the Jackson County health department collected and confirmed a positive mosquito sample in Murphysboro recently on August 13th of this year.
Contrary to popular opinion, (or at least from the doctor’s insurance company) this is not an accurate statement. Most people living in a civilized society recognize the right to sue. The fact that a doctor has been or is sued is not that significant. If you ask a doctor if they’ve been sued, they will often be quick to explain how the case had no merit. Importantly, the physician will still continue to practice medicine and there will usually be no disciplinary action taken as a result of a civil medical malpractice lawsuit. The belief that a doctor’s reputation will suffer a blemish if sued, is simply not correct.
Vacuum everything within your home. Vacuuming must include your mattresses, your box springs, the carpets and the heavy curtains. Make sure that you place your vacuumed dirt in a tightly sealed plastic bag.
