To treat cancer or not to treat cancer: that is the question

For most people, when they are diagnosed with a condition the automatic response is to treat it. It makes sense, if something is wrong, it should be corrected, but sometimes treating a condition exposes someone to far more risk than if they were to just leave the illness alone. When people are diagnosed with cancer, the first question that should be asked is how dangerous the cancer is, not what the treatment is.

Bethlehem truck crash leaves women's basketball team injured

A recent accident in Bethlehem Township has left a considerable number of women injured, although many of the injuries appear to be minor. According to The Lehigh Valley Express-Times, a bus carrying Army women's basketball team was hit by a tractor-trailer truck on Route 33 North. Initial reports apparently indicate that the truck accident was caused by the truck hitting the bus from behind. What the trucker was doing to prompt the accident, remains to be seen.

Montgomery County man will go to jail for killing pedestrian

Though we have talked extensivley about the importance of paying attention to the road, today's story shows just how dangerous distracted driving can be. This past May, a 24-year-old was driving in East Norriton when he said his daughter dropped her bottle. Instead of waiting until he was home to get the bottle or pulling over and searching for the bottle, the father took his eyes off the road in an effort to get the bottle. Unfortunately, that mistake cost a man his life.

Montgomery County crash sends Reading woman to the hospital

Although anyone in Pennsylvania with a driver's license is expected to know how to operate a vehicle safely, it is professional drivers who should be held to an extremely high standard. Not only do these drivers need to have a driver's license, but they often have to go through courses or trainings that teach them how to be even safer. Moreover, they are paid to transport goods or people safely. Unfortunately, a school bus driver in Montgomery County did not take that responsibility to heart, causing a four-vehicle accident that sent a Reading woman and a Phoenixville woman to Phoenixville Hospital.

Hospital dress code could prevent infections

Patient safety is supposed to be a hospital's number one priority in Pennsylvania, and many hospitals continue to change their policies to make sure patients are safe during their stay. Hospitals should be aware of new recommendations by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America to revise current dress codes to prevent the spread of infections.
