Poor infection control linked to deadly viral outbreak

A deadly viral outbreak at a nursing facility sounds like the plot of a gothic horror novel, not a contemporary news story that could happen in or near Maryland in the 21st century. Nevertheless, this nightmare scenario for parents is currently playing out at a New Jersey long-term care facility for children with compromised immune systems where 25 children have fallen ill with an adenovirus, nine of whom have died. 

Risks associated with overworked hospital staff

Maryland residents rely on hospital staff for extremely important matters of health. However, hospital staff are human just like anyone else. They can make mistakes like anyone else, too. Unfortunately, the chances of these mistakes happening can be increased by problems in the industry itself.

Collision sends one vehicle into group of students

When people in Maryland send their children off to catch the school bus in the morning, they expect that the kids will arrive safely at school and then safely back at home later that day. If a problem would ever occur, parents would most likely assume that it would happen once their children were on the bus, not while they were standing on a street corner waiting for the bus. However, an accident can happen anytime and anywhere, including on a street corner. An example of this can be seen in an incident that happened recently in Aspen Hill.

New divorce laws simplify process for military couples

The divorce process was frustrating for most Maryland couples not just because of the emotional strain, but also because of the state’s requirements to get them done. Prior to October, divorcees in Maryland had to live apart for at least 12 months and both had to show up for the final hearing. It was long and tedious, as these spouses just want to move on with their lives and sign the papers as soon as they can. This was even harder for military couples given the varying nature of their living conditions.

Is joint-custody a better option?

Whether you have recently filed for divorce or you are simply considering the idea, there are many issues that arise. One of the most important is that of child custody and how you and your spouse will continue raising your children once you are separated. Traditionally, the child is put in the sole physical custody of one parent, and the non-custodial parent is given a visitation schedule. However, studies show that children who are raised in joint-custody arrangements may have advantages over those who are raised in sole-custody households.

One dead in three-vehicle crash on freeway

Most people in Maryland have at some time or another passed by a recent accident on the freeway or another road. Fortunately, many cases like this seem to involve only damage to vehicles and no immediate or evident harm to the people in them. However, this does not mean that great care is not still important when dealing with these crashes.
