Regulators said on Thursday that the hospital allowed filming to continue even after a medical professional asked that it stop. At the same time, regulators clarified the rules regarding the filming of patients, prohibiting health providers from inviting crews into treatment areas without permission from all patients who are present. That could end popular television shows that capture emergencies and traumas in progress, getting … [Read more...] about New York Hospital to Pay $2.2 Million Over Unauthorized Filming of 2 Patients

She bought a birthing ball, hired a doula and even practiced hypnotherapy. Her plan was to deliver at the Mount Sinai West Birthing Center, an area of the hospital marked by pastel curtains, family-size beds and large birthing tubs. Separated from the regular labor and delivery floor, it is for women who want a natural … [Read more...] about Why New York Lags So Far Behind on Natural Childbirth

More than 30 research studies produced over more than a decade contain falsified or fabricated data, officials concluded, and should be retracted. In 2017, the hospital paid a $10 million settlement to the federal government after the Department of Justice alleged that Anversa and two members of his team were … [Read more...] about He Promised to Restore Damaged Hearts.

John Fauber and Matt Wynn, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and USA TODAY NETWORK Published 11:07 p.m. UTC Aug 16, 2018 In the fight against cancer, you won’t find a mixture known as Allesgen on the long list of drugs approved as safe and effective by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But a doctor in California has been peddling his own $1,800-a-month “cure” to desperate patients for years. Despite four years of warnings from the FDA, a patient lawsuit, scathing online reviews and a raid by federal agents, the California medical board has not taken action. Benedict Liao is one of 73 doctors around the country with active medical licenses who got FDA warning letters over a five-year period alleging serious problems. Only one was disciplined by his state medical board, an investigation by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and MedPage Today found. The warning letters, which get scant public attention, are sent after FDA officials conduct … [Read more...] about FDA warning letters to doctors flag serious problems, but state medical boards do nothing
Sleep = big, big money. Kaitlyn Flannagan for Observer/Getty Images The first conversation with my professional sleep coach veered into late-night hot dog consumption around 30 minutes in.Luckily, I slept fine after July Fourth, I told Dan Daly, who works for Equinox, the up-up-upscale gym chain that recently launched an intensive 12-week program to help its members sleep better. But even on non-holidays, I (and all Americans, I suggested patriotically) sometimes overdo it. How should I handle that situation? Belly full of meat, thrashing around, staring at the ceiling, desperate for sleep? Daly, a blonde and fit former college swimmer, told me that, sure, evening snacks are often a problem. But, it’s not always that simple. “We want to look for the biggest rock,” he said. That rock could be food or perhaps my sputtering A.C. unit. Either way, “move it, then the path becomes clear.”Absorbing such mantras was difficult while also thinking deeply about the … [Read more...] about A Solid Night’s Sleep Is the New Luxury Good.
