The decision to put an elderly loved one in the care of a nursing home is likely one of the more challenging choices in any South Carolina resident's life. You have to put all your trust in people of whom you know nothing. A walk-through when you tour the facility might not give you an insight into the reality of the day-to-day treatment and care provided to residents.
Temporary workers in South Carolina should know that OSHA has released two bulletins aimed at staffing agencies and host employers to remind them of their duties to keep employees safe. This is part of the agency's Temporary Worker Initiative. The two bulletins, which are concerned with noise exposure and respiratory hazards, reiterate what OSHA already laid down in its Occupational Noise Standard and Respiratory Protection Standard.
If possible, South Carolina residents may want to avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon. The main reason is that doctors and nurses, like everyone else, often experience an afternoon slump. This is the sleepy feeling that develops around 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The result is that doctors and nurses tend to be less focused and less productive.
