Med. Malpractice Suit After Slow Removal of Lithium Batts.

Florida parents Cole Parsons and Courtney Thorne filed a medical malpractice suit on Wednesday, December 28. They filed against Jacksonville-based Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Dr. David Smith. The parents are claiming their baby suffered severe burns from the lithium battery she ingested because the physician took around five hours to remove said battery from the baby’s body.

According to data from the National Capital Poison Center, over 1,900 children swallowed button batteries in 2015. Among these cases, there were 20 deadly incidents in children younger than six. Parsons said other doctors noted their daughter may need continuous treatment to mend her esophagus. Because of the wounds in her esophagus lining, she can eat only pureed food.

Motorcycle accident causes death of two women in Johnston

Johnston Police Department Deputy Chief Daniel Parillo said last Monday they are uncovering some important test results. The results will help authorities discover the cause of death for two women. Patricia Manney Jones and Dolores Pagano allegedly died because of one man’s reckless motorcycle accident.

Jones lost her life in early October 2016 while Pagano died about a week ago. Parillo said both women died because of fire injuries, including severe burns. Authorities are working with the office of Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin and the medical examiner to definitively assess the cause of death.

The injuries of both women stemmed from a propane explosion set off by a motorcycle accident. After a barbecue at 60 Angelico Street in Johnston, Rhode Island, John Palermo was in a motorcycle crash. Neighbors said Palermo, a guest to the party, drove into a driveway and crashed into a large smoker and propane tank, setting off the explosion.

Bus Driver Did Not Brake in Fatal Tractor-Trailer Collision

According to Bristol Herald Courier, a bus and tractor-trailer collision occurred last Sunday, October 23 around 5:15 a.m. The accident happened along Interstate 10 near Palm Springs, California, killed 13 individuals and injured 31 others.

California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Jim Abele said the bus driver did not brake at all. Abele said, “There’s no indication whatsoever that the driver applied the brakes.” He added, “They just keep pulling bodies stuck in between the seats. It’s just due to this bus going so fast into the back of the truck. Why he did that, that’s what we’re trying to find out.”

USA Holiday had license to travel between states, which required bus driver Teodulo Elias Vides to drive within federal limits on regulated work hours. Under the circumstances police authorities described, Vides was within those limits. He departed Los Angeles at 8 p.m. and came back less than 12 hours later, which put the ceiling of the driving time at a 10 to 15-hour span.

Galaxy Note 7 Phones Banned on American Airline Flights

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are no longer allowed aboard airplanes. Specifically, the ban applies to passenger or cargo aircraft flying within, from, and to the United States. The announcement came from the Federal Aviation Administration on Friday, October 14.

The Department of Transportation said, “Passengers who attempt to evade the ban by packing their phone in checked luggage are increasing the risk of a catastrophic incident. Anyone violating the ban may be subject to criminal prosecution in addition to fines.” The FAA also informed airlines and an industry trade group of the new policy on Friday.

Apparently, Samsung Electronics America spokeswoman SungIn Cho welcomed the new policy. According to her, “We have encouraged airlines to issue similar communications directly to their passengers.”

The ban coincides with the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s announcement of a recall on Thursday, October 13. At the time, they had 93 reports of overheating batteries in the country.

Samsung Washing Machines Liable To Explode in the U.S.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning on Wednesday, September 28 about Samsung washing machines. Specifically, the machines are prone to explosion, especially units manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016.

Samsung is advising consumers to use a lower speed delicate cycle when washing water-resistant and bulky materials. Apparently, no explosion incidents occurred when using these cycles. The company clarified that models outside North America did not explode.

In a statement, Samsung said they are cooperating with the proper authorities. They noted, “We are in active discussions with the [Consumer Product Safety Commission] to address safety issues. In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage.”

One of the people who sued Samsung, 32-year-old Melissa Thaxton, said she could never forget what happened on the morning of April 8, 2016. “It was the loudest sound. It sounded like a bomb went off in my ear. Nuts and wires were everywhere. [The washing machine’s] cover was on the floor.”

Antibacterial soap ingredients banned by FDA

The United States Food and Drug Administration ordered a ban of 19 chemicals used as active ingredients in antibacterial soap, as well as hand and body wash.  On September 2, the FDA noted that companies have a year to take out these ingredients from their products. They banned nineteen chemicals as a result of this action.

Several companies have already done away with triclosan. Instead, they use one of three other chemicals – benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride, or chloroxylenol – as active ingredients in their antibacterial products. However, some companies are not budging. For instance, Dial’s “All Day Freshness” antibacterial soap, contains triclocarban as an active ingredient.
