Tort Reform: Reigning In the Costs Of Medical Care

A tort is an action that results in harm to a person or property. Torts can be litigated, and the person who initiates the litigation can be awarded damages if the person accused of wrongdoing had a duty to act in a particular manner but breached that duty, and if damages or injuries occurred as a result.

Torts of negligence are careless acts that cause injuries or damage. Medical malpractice suits accuse healthcare providers of torts of negligence by causing harm to a patient through deviation from acceptable medical practices. Malpractice suits generally allege a medical error by the physician.

In order to win a malpractice tort claim, a plaintiff must first demonstrate that the defendant owed a legal duty to provide care, then that the defendant breached that duty by failing to conform to the relevant standard of care, then that the breach of duty was the cause of harm or damages, and finally that harm or damages actually occurred.

Post-operative care after plastic surgery

Plastic surgery has increased popularity nowadays. People are now more open to plastic surgery to enhance their assets and features. Maybe because of the newer and safer technologies being applied to plastic surgery. Personally, I’m all for all-natural beauty but if I have friends or family who wants to go under the knife, I’d say if that what makes them happy and they have the money to spend, go for it! But first, make a few assessment about yourself before undergoing any procedure.

The decision to undergo plastic surgery involves a number of different factors. To begin with, you have to decide which procedure is best for your needs or desires, and commit to it. Once you have made this difficult decision, you will need to find a surgeon that you trust, schedule your surgery, go through the proper preparation for the procedure, and make plans for your recovery. All of this needs to be done before you even undergo the surgery. However, the most important aspect of a plastic surgery procedure is its aftermath. More specifically, you need to make absolutely sure that you stay healthy following your surgery, as with any other type of surgical procedure. To help prepare for this, you may want to do some research on websites like www.AboutPlasticSurgery.com/.

Detox foot pads from Saizen

Saizen has recently opened a new branch in Trinoma inside True Value. I got excited for everything Japanese so I immediately went inside and browsed through their products. One thing that caught my attention in the Health and Beauty section is the variety of detox foot pads available for only Php 85 each. I’m familiar with these detox foot pads because my mother used a similar product before called Kinotakara pads, also from Japan, and believes on the efficacy of the product.

Detox foot pads or foot patches are used to cleanse the body from toxins and wastes through the principle of reflexology. Our feet has the most nerve endings and reflex points and is therefore the best part to use the sap sheets. Overnight, the foot pads will purify the body. It relieves fatigue, joint pains, migraines, headaches, promotes better sleep and relieves the body of heavy metals. My mother used these foot pads before to get rid of her arthritis and it worked.

I bought 2 samples of the detox pads or sap sheets and use this on my husband Jeff aka my guinea pig.
