Veterans' psychiatric maladies often misdiagnosed

Many veterans are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from a variety of mental ailments brought on by what they have seen.

Now such hospitals are finding their selves on the wrong side of accusations in their failure to diagnose mental and psychiatric issues that are being presented.

Birth injuries are all too common

Though many parents look forward to the birth of a child, the child birthing process is also immensely complicated and often results in injuries that can burden the child for the remainder of their life. As many as six out of every thousand children born suffer some sort of birth injury in the United States. Some of these injuries are mild, but many more are extremely severe.

Anesthesia and brain injury to children

This can come about due to simple miscommunication between nurses, anesthesiologists and their physicians.
