Medical Health News

We have some real problems and they are only going to get worse. We have a right to know what we are eating. People are getting allergies, this isn't normal folks. If we don't pay attention to what's happening, in our food supply, to our farmers, the plants, and ultimately our grocery store we are going to wake up one day and realize we trusted the health of our children and the health of our families to the government. And the government let us down.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources is being sued by six families who claim the agency can't impose new vaccine requirements for schoolchildren.

Beginning in the fall, seventh-graders and 12th graders must be vaccinated for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis and meningitis. Those who aren't vaccinated cannot attend public schools. The lawsuit recently filed with the state Supreme Court claims the DHHR overstepped its authority. Delegate Patrick Lane represents the plaintiffs. The Kanawha County Republican say the DHHR can't require vaccines without the Legislature's approval.

The House voted to remove country-of-origin labels on beef, pork and chicken sold in the U.S., hoping to prevent a protracted battle over the labels with Canada and Mexico.

Thanks to a little-known congressional bill, it may soon be impossible to tell whether your Fourth of July burger is all-American Angus or beef imported from the Amazon, according to a Facebook meme. "The House of Representatives just voted 300-131 to remove 'country-of-origin labeling' on chicken, pork, and beef sold in the United States," the meme says. "Sorry but you don't deserve to know where your meat is coming from." Buy Local!

Pittsburghers have not heard much about the flu yet, but another miserable ailment, called norovirus, or the stomach flu, is knocking folks down right and left.

Norovirus commonly breaks out on cruise ships and is easily spread throughout contaminated food, water and dirty hands. This potentially deadly virus is easy to get, and is hard to kill. It lives on toys, telephones, doorknobs and desks for days.

People on Medicare who spend one or two nights in the hospital are finding out, and often too late, that they weren't really "admitted" to the hospital. This can be a costly discovery.

Even though they were in a bed in a hospital room, the hospital may have categorized them as being there for "observation," rather than being formally "admitted." But patients being "observed" might face some unpleasant surprises when they leave the hospital. For example, Medicare might not pay the tab for a rehab facility or a nursing home, even if a physician releases the patient to an outside facility to recover from a fall or stroke. Or Medicare might not pay for a visiting nurse when the patient goes home.

If you wondered how a Virginia State Trooper can drive quickly up onto a sidewalk beside a Virginia Commonwealth University dorm, hit a skateboarder and not face serious charges, all you have to do is meet the skateboarder himself.

Tim Crawford is a 17-year-old Richmonder with some refreshingly old-fashioned values. While it would be cool if he could make some kind of career skateboarding, he said, Tim's dream is to be a herpetologist. He never dreamed of trying to profit from his few famous seconds on the hood of a trooper's car - a few seconds that was captured on video that has gotten hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube. "It was really fast," Tim recalled Friday while taking a break from his restaurant job at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. "I went up on the hood and I was like, 'Wow! I'm on the hood of the car right now.' I don't remember falling to the ground. I just remember being back up on my feet."

Within seconds a friendly visit to a front door by police turned violent.

Capitol Heights Police say one of their officers was forced to shoot a dog that came running from a house straight at a cop. The dog survived and now all those involved are telling their side of the story. Last night was National Night Out, when local police came out into the community to educate the public about what they do. Officers were going door to door handing out leaflets, and that's when things turned ugly.

DC Fire and EMS officials are explaining why an ambulance had to stop, in the middle of the transport of a suspect who was shot by police.

The ambulance the suspect in stopped short of the hospital, where he later died. Fire officials say it wasn't because of an attempt to let a suspected cop shooter die in their care, but because a new piece of equipment on their truck meant to reduce diesel emissions forced the ambulance to shut down. The device which is mandated by the EPA to be on all newer model diesel vehicles is designed to burn of diesel toxins. It does it either automatically or manually. If neither of those happens during a common cycle known as a "re-generating cycle" warning lights will go off and eventually force the vehicle to lose power and shut off.

The state of Wisconsin says it will soon roll out a new health care system for children in foster care. They often have far more serious medical and mental health needs than peers.

In the first of a two-part series, WUWM's Erin Toner reports on a big shortcoming of the current health care system for foster children - their medical records are scattered and incomplete. What the state plans to do to address the problem, is create for each child, a "medical home."
