by Administrator 26. July 2010 05:39

A case of mistaken identity after an emergency room error has left two families upset and confused. The incident occurred after a woman and her four friends were driving back to Phoenix after a trip to DisneyLand and they were involved in a rollover car accident.

The accident occurred after the tire in their car blew out causing the car to flip. The family of one of the women was told that their loved one had suffered serious injuries but she was at the hospital fighting for her life.

Later the family was informed that the hospital had made mistake and that the girl that was recovering was not their family member but one of her friends. The family is very upset and does not understand how the mistake happened. The family has made a statement that said that many mistakes were made which has made the tragic event even more horrific.

Hospital errors can cause serious injury and have traumatizing effects on all involved, our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victims.

Tour bus crash in Arizona could have been prevented

by Administrator 14. July 2010 07:37

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, a tour bus crash that occured last year could have been prevented if safety rules were put into place earlier.

Board members were fighting for tougher safety requirements be used in mid-size buses. For example, stronger windows and safer restraints for passengers in order to keep passengers safe and prevent them from being ejected from the vehicle if a crash were to occur.

Investigators have said that the bus crash in Arizona that killed seven people occurred when the driver became distracted while trying to shut the door while driving. The driver then ran off of the road and overcorrected causing the bus to flip over. During the accident, 15 passengers were ejected from the vehicle.

Our thoughts are with the families of the victims in the accident.
