Driving while drowsy in Arkansas

Studies indicate that driving while drowsy may be very similar to driving while intoxicated. Much like when someone is intoxicated, when someone is fatigued, they are likely to have reduced reaction times, limited ability to pay attention to the road and decreased awareness of their surroundings. This may cause an Arkansas driver to fail to take evasive action to avoid an accident.

Hospitals as a source of sickness

An individual facing a stay in an Arkansas hospital may want to investigate the facility's ratings in terms of certain high-risk infections. Although hospitals are typically viewed as locations for healing, some conditions can increase the risk of coming into contact with dangerous superbugs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, twice as many individuals die each year from such infections than from motor vehicle accidents. In fact, nearly 650,000 individuals contract such infections after staying in a hospital.

Expectant moms may be at higher risk of dying

A study published in The Economist claims that American women who are expecting, including those in Arkansas, may be at a greater risk of dying now than at any other time in the last 10 years. National trends across the developed world show maternal death rates from childbirth dropping significantly, but America's is rising. While the odds are still much lower than the early 1930s, when one mother died for every 100 deliveries, this trend is disquieting for many.
