Longer shifts might be safer for new doctors than shorter hours

Patient safety is supposed to be at the forefront of medical decisions and health care policies. That is one of the reason a medical oversight board reduced the number of hours a new doctor can work in one shift.

While this was meant to help reduce the number of errors that doctors make due to fatigue.

Cell transplant could be key to repairing spinal cord injuries

Spinal cord injuries are often devastating. Many of them can lead to at least partial paralysis, if not entire paralysis of certain parts of a person's body. This means the person may have to rely on help for daily tasks that many of us take for granted. If the person isn't able to work because of their injuries, this can be devastating to a family's income and the person's self esteem.
