Compensation and Redress: Payment, or other means of making amends, for a wrong or injury.Workers' Compensation: Insurance coverage providing compensation and medical benefits to individuals because of work-connected injuries or disease.Dosage Compensation, Genetic: Genetic mechanisms that allow GENES to be expressed at a similar level irrespective of their GENE DOSAGE. This term is usually used in discussing genes that lie on the SEX CHROMOSOMES. Because the sex chromosomes are only partially homologous, there is a different copy number, i.e., dosage, of these genes in males vs. females. In DROSOPHILA, dosage compensation is accomplished by hypertranscription of genes located on the X CHROMOSOME. In mammals, dosage compensation of X chromosome genes is accomplished by random X CHROMOSOME INACTIVATION of one of the two X chromosomes in the female.X Chromosome: The female sex chromosome, being the differential sex chromosome carried by half the male gametes and all female gametes in human and other male-heterogametic species.Sex Chromosomes: The homologous chromosomes that are dissimilar in the heterogametic sex. There are the X CHROMOSOME, the Y CHROMOSOME, and the W, Z chromosomes (in animals in which the female is the heterogametic sex (the silkworm moth Bombyx mori, for example)). In such cases the W chromosome is the female-determining and the male is ZZ. (From King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Genes, X-Linked: Genes that are located on the X CHROMOSOME.Liability, Legal: Accountability and responsibility to another, enforceable by civil or criminal sanctions.Silicosis: A form of pneumoconiosis resulting from inhalation of dust containing crystalline form of SILICON DIOXIDE, usually in the form of quartz.

These deviations may be caused by physical or chemical agents and occur by natural or unnatural, introduced circumstances. They include the introduction of illegitimate bases during replication or by deamination or other modification of bases; the loss of a base from the DNA backbone leaving an abasic site; single-strand breaks; double strand breaks; and intrastrand (PYRIMIDINE DIMERS) or interstrand crosslinking.

Does justice require genetic enhancements? (1/129)

It is argued that justice in some cases provides a pro tanto reason genetically to enhance victims of the genetic lottery. Various arguments--both to the effect that justice provides no such reason and to the effect that while there may be such reasons, they are overridden by certain moral constraints--are considered and rejected. Finally, it is argued that justice provides stronger reasons to perform more traditional medical tasks (treatments), and that therefore genetic enhancements should not play an important role in a public health care system.  (+info)

Paying research subjects: participants' perspectives. (2/129)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the opinions of unpaid healthy volunteers on the payment of research subjects. DESIGN: Prospective cohort. SETTING: Southern Alberta, Canada. PARTICIPANTS: Medically eligible persons responding to recruiting advertisements for a randomised vaccine trial were invited to take part in a study of informed consent at the point at which they formally consented or refused trial participation. Of 72 invited, 67 (62 trial consenters, 5 trial refusers) returned questionnaires at baseline and 54 at follow-up. OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportions of persons who agreed or disagreed with three close-ended statements on the payment of research subjects; themes and categories identified by content analysis of responses to an open-ended question. RESULTS: A minority (43.3%) agreed with paying either patient or healthy volunteer participants. Opinions did not change over time. Participants' comments addressed: benefits and drawbacks to research participation; benefits and drawbacks to paying research participants; conditions under which payment of research subjects would be acceptable, and the nature of acceptable recognition. Acceptable conditions were to improve problematic recruitment, to reimburse costs, and to recognise participants, particularly for their time investment. Both non-monetary and monetary recognition of volunteers were thought to be appropriate. CONCLUSIONS: Most unpaid volunteers disagreed with paying research participants. The themes arising from their comments are similar to those that have been raised by ethicists and suggest that recognising the time and effort of participants should receive greater emphasis than presently occurs.  (+info)

Recruitment and motivation of semen providers in Sweden. (5/129)

BACKGROUND: Legislation in Sweden requires that semen providers are prepared to be identified to offspring (at maturity) should this be requested. This study presents views of semen providers in Sweden regarding factors associated with their recruitment and motivation. METHODS: All semen providers (n = 30) in two clinics in different parts of Sweden participated in a questionnaire survey and both quantitative and qualitative data are reported. RESULTS: While there were some important demographic differences between the two clinic populations, there was total agreement that the desire to assist infertile couples was the sole or main motivating factor in becoming a semen provider. Monetary reward was not reported by respondents to be an important motivator, although at least 50% of the providers in both clinics thought that payment should be made and reimbursement of expenses was reported as being important. Men responded to both advertising and personal experiences or contacts they had with infertile couples. The involvement and support of the semen provider's partner was regarded as important. CONCLUSIONS: Semen providers can be recruited within a system that requires them to be prepared to be identified to offspring in the future. The characteristics of such providers vary, but are typified by a strong desire to assist infertile couples.  (+info)

Developing scientific and policy methods that support precautionary action in the face of uncertainty--the Institute of Medicine Committee on Agent Orange. (6/129)

To be precautionary, decisions must be made to prevent the impacts of potentially harmful activities even though the nature and magnitude of harm have not been proven scientifically. The Institute of Medicine's Committee on the Health Effects in Vietnam Veterans of Exposures to Herbicides provides a novel example of science and policy structures that support precautionary action in the face of uncertainty. What makes this example unique is the clear set of precautionary decision rules that lowered the standard for evidence, which formed the basis for policy. These rules, established by Congress, strongly influenced the way scientific information was weighed and the subsequent compensation decisions. They encouraged committee members to think outside the confines of their disciplines and develop new tools and methods to fit their unique mandate. The result was a methodology, supported by strong institutional structures, that allowed scientists to discuss the evidence as a whole, reach decisions as a group, and clarify uncertainties.  (+info)

Predictors and severity of injury in assaults with barglasses and bottles. (7/129)

BACKGROUND: Although glasses and bottles are frequently used as weapons in assaults, there is little knowledge on which prevention strategies can be based. DESIGN: Scrutiny of a random sample of 1288 criminal injury compensation applications. OBJECTIVE: To identify predictors and relative severity of glass and bottle injury. METHOD: Injury site, severity, treatment, and demographic characteristics of victims and assailants were studied with reference to awards from the UK national Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Gender of victims and assailants, injury sites, treatment, and award (UK pounds) as indices of injury severity. RESULTS: Annual CICA awards to all victims of assaults in licensed premises during 1996-98 amounted to pound 4.08 million (for all glass/bottle assaults: pound 1.15 million = 28%). The mean cost of 746 glass assaults was pound 2347, compared with pound 2007 for 542 injuries from bottle assaults (mean difference pound 340; p<0.01). This difference largely reflected more eye injuries with glasses (26 cases: 3% of all glass assaults) than with bottles (eight cases: 1% of all bottle assaults). Bottle assault was significantly associated with unidentified assailants and scalp injuries; whereas glass injury was significantly linked to pub opening hours (midday to midnight), Thursdays, eye and face injuries, and treatment requiring sutures. Mean age of bottle assault victims (26.1 years) was lower than of glass victims (27.3 years; p<0.01), and same gender assaults were more frequent than between gender assaults for both bottle (p<0.001) and glass (p<0.001) assaults. Female victims were allocated to lower compensation awards more frequently than male victims; this was the case for both bottle (p<0.05) and glass (p<0.01) assaults. CONCLUSIONS: Assaults with bottles caused less serious injury and resulted in lower compensation costs. Injury distribution was linked to victim gender and weapon choice, but not to assailant gender. Prevention strategies should focus on both bottle and glass assaults and should take account of the setting and time in which drinking occurs.  (+info)

Surgical adverse events, risk management, and malpractice outcome: morbidity and mortality review is not enough. (8/129)

OBJECTIVE: To review all admissions (age > 13) to three surgical patient care centers at a single academic medical center between January 1, 1995, and December 6, 1999, for significant surgical adverse events. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Little data exist on the interrelationships between surgical adverse events, risk management, malpractice claims, and resulting indemnity payments to plaintiffs. The authors hypothesized that examination of this process would identify performance improvement opportunities overlooked by standard medical peer review; the risk of litigation would be constant across the three homogeneous patient care centers; and the risk management process would exceed the performance improvement process. METHODS: Data collected included patient demographics (age, gender, and employment status), hospital financials (hospital charges, costs, and financial class), and outcome. Outcome categories were medical (disability: <1 month, 1-6 months, permanent/death), legal (no legal action, settlement, summary judgment), financial (indemnity payments, legal fees, write-offs), and cause and effect analysis. Cause and effect analysis attempts to identify system failures contributing to adverse outcomes. This was determined by two independent analysts using the 17 Harvard criteria and subdividing these into subsystem causative factors. RESULTS: The study group consisted of 130 patients with surgical adverse events resulting in total liabilities of $8.2 million US dollars. The incidence of adverse events per 1,000 admissions across the three patient care centers was similar, but indemnity payments per 1,000 admissions varied (cardiothoracic = $30 US dollars, women's health = $90 US dollars, trauma = $520 US dollars). Patient demographics were not predictive of high-risk subgroups for adverse events or litigation. In terms of medical outcome, 51 patients had permanent disability or death, accounting for 98% of the indemnity payments. In terms of legal outcome, 103 patients received no indemnity payments, 15 patients received indemnity payments, four suits remain open, and in eight cases charges were written off ($0.121 million US dollars). To date, no cases have been adjudicated in court. Cause and effect analysis identified 390 system failures contributing to the adverse events (mean 3.0 failures per adverse event); there were 4.7 failures per adverse event in the 15 indemnity cases. Five categories of causes accounted for 75% of the failures (patient management, n = 104; communication, n = 89; administration, n = 33; documentation, n = 32; behavior, n = 23). The current medical review process would have identified 104 of 390 systems failures (37%). CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates no rational link between the tort system and the reduction of adverse events. Sixty-three percent of contributing causes to adverse events were undetected by current medical review processes. Adverse events occur at the interface between different systems or disciplines and result from multiple failures. Indemnity costs per hospital day vary dramatically by patient care center (range $3.60-97.60 US dollars a day). The regionalization of healthcare is in jeopardy from the burden of high indemnity payments.  (+info)

Challenges with Filing a Claim Under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). When filing a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), what you are really doing is filing a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (commonly known as the "Vaccine Court"). While the VICP is designed to make it easier for individuals with vaccine injuries to recover the money they need to cover their medical bills and other losses, the government still has an interest in ensuring that it does not pay invalid claims. As a result, the government will assign experienced attorneys to defend your case. Those attorneys are there to prevent you from receiving compensation unless and until you prove that you are entitled to a financial recovery under the terms of the VICP.. In addition, the Vaccine Court has complex rules in place governing everything from when and how you file your claim to what goes on in proceedings before the Court. If you fail to follow the rules, you ...
If you are searching for the term "Vaccine Injury Table," you may be looking for information about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP is a federal program which compensates persons who experience a Vaccine Injury, which occurs when a child or adult experiences certain adverse reactions after receiving one of several vaccinations covered under the NVICP.. Claims for compensation to the NVICP are made to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims located in Washington, D.C., by filing a petition. Most "petitioners" are represented by lawyers. An attorney representing a petitioner must be admitted to practice in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The "Vaccine Injury Table" refers to a chart listing the most common vaccines or immunizations administered, such as DTaP vaccine, MMR vaccine, varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, and polio vaccine for children, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) for adolescents and young adults, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis booster ...
Dr. James R. Shannon, former Director of the US National Institute of Health, has been widely quoted as saying: "The only safe vaccine is one that is never used." But are adverse vaccine reactions really a big deal? Arent they just the "fever and fatigue" were warned about after yearly shots? Or is there more to learn?. And arent moderate and severe adverse reactions rare? Lets answer this question first.. Reactions are considered rare, in part, because reporting is rare. Unlike reporting for human vaccine reactions, required by the National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, reporting is voluntary for reactions experienced by animals. Furthermore, there is no federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for animals as there is for humans, nor is there a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). That does not mean that adverse events arent a serious a problem for animals. In fact, because animals are given numerous vaccines repeatedly (and unnecessarily) throughout their ...

The writer has become embroiled in the controversy about whether or not it is wise to vaccinate.. I have been encountering cases of vaccine injury for over 40 years. In June it was a happy, healthy nearly 5-year-old whose parents were required to put her on a catch-up schedule, in order to get her into kindergarten. She wont be going to kinder. Shes in a wheel-chair, brain-damaged. Her life ruined. Then came a friends father who died after a flu vaccine, and last week a 4 year old boy, made autistic by a catch-up schedule.. In 1988, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created. It has paid out over US$3.5 billion to the vaccine-injured. The NVICP was set up to protect vaccine manufacturers from ruinous costs of litigation by vaccine-damaged people. It was deemed preferable to have unavoidably unsafe vaccines than no vaccines. Unfortunately the protection provided to vaccine manufacturers also reduced incentives to develop safer vaccines in USA.. Politicians and doctors ...
As I reported in my column, the one exception to this drumbeat of misleading and inaccurate coverage about "vaccine safety" is on the local level, where correspondent Michael Chen of ABC 10 News in San Diego, California noted a case of a boy who suffered serious injuries, including fever, seizures, nervous tics and autism, as a result of two vaccines. The mother, almost in tears as she described what happened to her son, was paid $55,000 in damages through the federal program. But the damage award didnt cover the autism diagnosis. She said she wished she had more thoroughly researched the safety of vaccines.. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program grew out of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. Fisher explains what happened: "The companies threatened Congress that they were going to leave the people without any childhood vaccines if they did not get liability protection. The companies wanted this liability protection and it was mainly for losses at that time for DPT and ...
Curtis R. Webb has represented petitioners in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program since its creation in 1988. He has represented 275 petitioners in Table and Off-Table cases, in cases involving nearly every Table vaccine. He has won compensation for catastrophically injured children injured by the DTP, DTaP, MMR, and Oral Polio vaccines and for seriously injured adults injured by the MMR, Hepatitis B, Influenza, Varicella, and HPV vaccines.. Mr. Webb represented the petitioners in several precedent setting cases, including Koston v. Secy of Health and Human Services, 974 F.2d 157 (Fed. Cir. 1992) and Shyface v. Secy of Health and Human Services, 165 F.3d 1344 (Fed. Cir. 1999). Not all of his noteworthy cases have been victories.

On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boys permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent. Like the U.S., Italy has a national vaccine injury compensation program to give some financial support to those people who are injured by compulsory and recommended vaccinations. The Italian infant plaintiff received three doses of GlaxoSmithKlines Infanrix Hexa, a hexavalent vaccine administered in the first year of life. These doses occurred from March to October 2006. The vaccine is to protect children from polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis and Haemophilus influenza type B. In addition to these antigens, however, the vaccine then contained thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative, aluminum, an adjuvant, as well as other ...

A: In the vast majority of cases, vaccines are effective and cause no side effects or only mind reactions such as fever or soreness at the injection site. Very rarely, people experience more serious side effects like allergic reactions. Severe reactions to vaccines occur so rarely that the risk is usually difficult to calculate.. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if your child has health problems or known allergies to medications or food. In the rare event a child is injured by a vaccine, he or she may be compensated through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

Rotavirus is reported to be the leading cause of diarrhea among children, causing upwards of 55,000 hospitalizations per year in the US. Symptoms consist of vomiting and diarrhea, usually lasting between 3-8 days. Subsequent bouts of rotavirus are usually milder.. When this vaccine made its debute in 1998, Ill admit to some skepticism. I laughed and said,"Really? Now its death by diarrhea!" When the first Rotavirus vaccine (RotaShield) was recalled in 1999, for causing intussusception, I felt justified in my stance. Especially when I found out that intussusception caused by this vaccine is a "compensable injury" and is paid for out of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. (1) (Intussusception is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the intestine gets blocked or twisted. One portion of the intestine telescopes into a nearby portion, causing the intestinal obstruction. The most common site is where the small intestine joins the large ...
The record shows that Joel Gomez, the decedent, a 14-year old healthy boy who had regular visits to the pediatricians office for periodic check-ups since birth showed no evidence of any pre-existing health issues, specifically no evidence of cardiac abnormalities, psychological disorders or substance abuse.

On June 19, 2013, the boy was given the first dose of Gardasil® in his left arm in the doctors office. No adverse reactions were reported following this first vaccination by the boy to either his family or his physician. On August 19, 2013 the boy was given a second injection of Gardasil® as scheduled in the doctors office. Then he went home and went to sleep. The boy was found to be unresponsive in bed the following morning on August 20, 2013 at 7:00 a.m. by his family.. Paramedics were called in and the boy was transported to the ...
I never really questioned vaccine safety and I thought I understood the reasoning of why vaccines worked. I had been in a pre-med curriculum in my undergraduate study and my children were vaccinated in the 1980s when they were young. I was a practicing R.N. for many years and I received a number of vaccines during that time and I administered many. I was injured by the Hep B vaccine series in 1992-93, but no one was very interested in reporting or tracking that injury. I began studying vaccination in 2009 when I was out on a disability leave of absence.. There is an explosion of vaccine related injuries occurring across our country. There is something very, very wrong happening to our children; many are suffering from allergies, neurological and immune-system damage. In 1986 the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed where The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Board was formed by Congress at the bequest of the vaccine manufacturers because they were being inundated with lawsuits ...
Waking Times. Yet another shocking blow has been delivered to people who still ardently claim that vaccines are "safe and effective," and that the only complications they can cause are "mild." The US government department for Health Resources and Services Administration has recently released the running tally of the just-past-half-way-complete US Fiscal Year (FY) of 2017 for compensable vaccine injuries. It currently stands at over $142 million dollars. You read that right. That covers the 377 cases that were thus far successful in obtaining compensation in fiscal year 2017 through the heavily biased (to put it politely) system allegedly in place to redress damage done by vaccines in the USA.. At the rate things are going, we might expect the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to pay out around $220 million or more by the close of FY 2017. To clarify, US Fiscal Year 2017 runs from October 1st, 2016 to September 30th, 2017 - theres still over four months remaining to rack up more ...
Ron Homer, Boston, Massachusetts, for Petitioner.. R. Lynne Harris, United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC, for Respondent.. DECISION French, Special Master.. This case arises under 42 U.S.C. 300aa-1 et seq., the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act of 1986. (1) Petitioner filed her petition on February 15, 1994, claiming that as the result of a Tetanus Toxoid vaccine (hereinafter sometimes TT) administered on February 15, 1991, she sustained a post-vaccinal myelitis, an autoimmune demyelinating disease with permanent neurological sequelae. Respondent defends by arguing that her condition is consistent with Multiple Sclerosis, (hereinafter MS), a factor unrelated to the vaccine. (2) Procedural Background A hearing was held in Washington, D.C. by telephone conference call on August 21, 1997. Inasmuch as the facts in this case were not contested, the hearing was confined to the testimony of medical experts. Petitioner presented the testimony of Alan Scott Levin, M.D., J.D. ...
Directors of the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA), parents and vaccine-injured children will hold a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (717 Madison Place, NW in Washington, DC) on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM to unveil an investigation linking vaccine injury to autism. For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism. This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate ...
Part 1. By Myvaccinelawyer As an attorney focusing my practice on representing people injured by vaccines, I am well-versed in the vaccine claims process. Unfortunately, many people are not even aware that there is a legal recourse for such vaccine-related injuries. The law provides only three years from the start of symptoms to file a claim, and unfortunately clients often call when it is too late. Usually they inform me that they did not even know about this program. It is our goal to change this by spreading the word about the vaccine claims program. It is a fact that vaccines can hurt people. The Vaccine Compensation Trust Fund was created solely to compensate people who are afflicted with injuries, conditions, or reactions after receiving vaccines. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ("VICP") is a Federal program created to provide compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines. The VICP was created by Congress in 1986 as a no-fault alternative to the traditional tort ...
Theres convincing evidence that some vaccines can cause some adverse effects, including seizures, brain inflammation, and fainting, according to a new report from the Institute of Medicine.. But the evidence also favors rejecting the idea that some vaccines cause type 1 diabetes or autism, the institute said.. The 647-page report was commissioned in 2009 by the Health Resources and Services Administration, which administers the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The agency asked the institute to review the evidence linking eight vaccines and a suite of possible adverse effects that have been the subject of compensation claims.. All told, an expert panel convened by the institute found "convincing evidence" that 14 adverse effects can be caused by eight vaccines - those against varicella zoster, influenza, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, human papillomavirus (HPV), measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), and meningococcus, as well as tetanus-containing vaccines that do not carry the whole-cell pertussis ...
Vaccine manufacturers have paid out nearly $2B in damages to parents in America whose children were harmed by one of the childhood jabs such as the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) or DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus). In all, around 2,000 families have received compensation payments that have averaged $850,000 each. There are a further 700 claims that are going through the pipeline. None of the claims is for autism as medical researchers say they have failed to find a link between the disease and the MMR vaccine, despite the initial findings made by Dr Andrew Wakefield. Instead they are for a wide spectrum of physical and mental conditions that are likely to have been caused by one of the vaccinations. Around 7,000 parents have filed a claim of an adverse reaction with Americas Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). To win an award, the claimant must prove a causal link to a vaccine. As the medical establishment has refused to recognise any link to autism, the VICP has so far rejected 300 ...
In this case parents brought a claim for damages for the vaccine-related injury of their son. They alleged that as a result of the administration of a DPT vaccine he suffered a hypotonic-hyporesponsive collapse and encephalopathy and residual seizure disorder. The parents further maintain that the injuries resulted in permanent disabilities involving significant developmental delay, moderate autistic characteristics, and mental retardation.. The court found that the claimants were entitled to compensation, concluding that the DPT was the presumed cause.. Sorenson v. HHS, 1990 WL 290491 (Cl.Ct.). In offering these examples of support for the proposition that vaccines can and have caused "mental retardation" along with neurological deficits and other cognitive problems, we are mindful of the difference between "causation" in law and "causality" in science. In particular, we are mindful of the standards applicable in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. But these are the sources of data ...

Combinations - Administering several vaccines at once is an even greater recipe for disaster. Reports from the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (see references) indicate that the most deaths have occurred when vaccine combinations were administered. These include the DPT, DaPT and the MMR. Also, combinations of individual vaccines are often given at a single doctor visit to save time and trouble. This is a very unwise practice, according to government statistics.. Healthy people are much less susceptible to all illness. This should be obvious, but bears repeating. There is no substitute for eating well, resting adequately and living healthfully. Any other approach to your health is risky, at best. Vaccines are known to weaken the body and thus worsen general health.. Most infectious diseases are benign. Polio is completely benign in more than 95 percent of cases. Many people have had it without even realizing it. It appears as a flu-like syndrome that passes without a problem, if ...
Even though Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court have declared that FDA licensed vaccines are "unavoidably unsafe" for the purpose of banning product liability lawsuits against drug companies, 52 53 54 government officials still want you to believe that vaccines are 100 percent safe for you, your children and everyone you know 100 percent of the time. The "Its your fault, not the fault of our vaccines" defense is the ultimate free pass the pharmaceutical and medical trade industries are determined to get so they can keep on telling lies like it would be safe to give babies 10,000 vaccines at once 55 to justify forcing one-size-fits-all vaccine policies on all children and adults - no exceptions and no questions asked. 56 ...
I could not find a more direct way of contacting you than this. I really have to thank you so much! Thanks for being a brave voice and for taking action! I am so grateful to have found the truth about vaccines before my first child was born. I have 3 healthy unvaccinated children, and I desperately want to keep it that way! The fight against big pharma and vaccines is overwhelming! I have felt so small and so powerless most of the time, always knowing that something had to be done before we become completely stripped of our rights. Tonight I saw a video centered around vaccine injured and vaccine death victims, where you inspired so many to fight, to stand up. I believe so deeply in fighting for human rights, that I have been driven to begin my pursuit of a Law Degree. The main drive for my pursuit is the fight against vaccines. Thank you for giving me more of a drive. I sobbed so hard, begging God for the power to fight against this grave injustice while watching the video your son shot! I will ...

The potential use of financial compensation to increase living kidney donation rates remains controversial in potentially introducing undue inducement of vulnerable populations to donate. This cross-sectional study assessed amounts of financial compensation that would generate motivation and an undue inducement to donate to family/friends or strangers. Individuals leaving six Departments of Motor Vehicles were surveyed. Of the 210 participants who provided verbal consent (94% participation rate), respondents willingness to donate would not change (70%), or would increase (29%) with compensation. Median lowest amounts of financial compensation for which participants would begin to consider donating a kidney were $5000 for family/friends, and $10 000 for strangers; respondents reporting $0 for family/friends (52%) or strangers (26%) were excluded from analysis. Median lowest amounts of financial compensation for which participants could no longer decline (perceive an undue inducement) were $50 ...

The girl in question, Ellen OKane, will return to court in 15 years when her future care needs will be assessed and further provision for her care and treatment can be made.. Ellen, who live at Kiltybegs in Longford town, took the birth injury compensation claim via her mother Mary Brady, against the HSE in relation to the care provided to her at the time of her birth on September 19, 2012, at Portiuncula. It was alleged that, due of excessive traction as attempts were made at instrumental delivery, Ellen sustained injuries and became "severely compromised". It was necessary to intubate her when she was finally delivered by an emergency caesarean section.. Her legal representative, Denis McCullough, instructed by solicitor Michael Boylan, told the court that an MRI scan later showed that a skull fracture and the baby had suffered a hypoxic ischaemic injury. In addition to this it was claimed there was a failure to use any or any proper or adequate care for the safety and wellbeing of the baby ...

While vaccines help prevent many diseases in the United States, we lack immunization protection against several serious illnesses, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine that identifies priority areas for updating the National Vaccine Plan. The revised plan should include a strategy to accelerate development of high-priority vaccines, said the committee that wrote the report. In addition, it should emphasize the importance of expanding funding for safety research and monitoring, and include the development of a national communications strategy to clarify the importance of vaccines and bolster public confidence in the immunization system.. The National Vaccine Plan aims to provide centralized coordination of the various components involved in protecting Americans from vaccine-preventable illnesses and vaccine-related adverse reactions. The immunization system engages many partners -- including multiple government agencies and departments, vaccine researchers, manufacturers, public ...

36. Moreover, we do not give Chevron6 deference to the Secretarys interpretation of Section 202(a). This court gives Chevron deference to agency interpretations of regulations promulgated pursuant to congressional authority. NLRB v. United Food and Commercial Workers Union, 484 U.S. 112, 123, 108 S.Ct. 413, 421, 98 L.Ed.2d 429 (1987). The PSA does not delegate authority to the Secretary to adjudicate alleged violations of Section 202 by live poultry dealers. See 7 U.S.C. § 193(a). Congress left that task exclusively to the federal courts. See Jackson v. Swift Eckrich, Inc., 53 F.3d 1452, 1456-57 (8th Cir.1995). The absence of such delegation compels courts to afford no Chevron deference to the Secretarys construction of Section 202(a). See, e.g., United States v. Mead Corp., 533 U.S. 218, 226-27, 121 S.Ct. 2164, 2171, 150 L.Ed.2d 292 (2001) (stating that "administrative implementation of a particular statutory provision qualifies for Chevron deference when it appears that Congress delegated ...

The Job of Property Claim Appraisers. When selling their products insurance company will neglect to tell the client on the functions of casualty adjusters when they incur property losses. Therefore the insurance clients have the assumption that the only item required when accidents occur is filling and filing claims form. Only when accidents occur resulting in losses to the property owner come to interact for the first time with property claims appraisers. Therefore it is important to understand the functions performed by casualty adjusters. The roles of casualty adjuster in the claim and compensation processes are as follows. The property claim appraisers are responsible for evaluating the report on the cause of the accident. The evaluation is to make sure the property owner in any way either willing or unwilling did not cause the accident. Investigations involve asking home owner questions and also any other relate parties. They will get the police statements issued. Casualty adjuster next ...

When addressing adverse events, most quality and safety experts agree that transparency should be a guiding principle. When an adverse event occurs, the appropriate clinicians should first inform and console the patient about the harm and provide assurance that an investigation to determine the root cause will be conducted and that the patient will be informed of the investigations results. If an error in the patients care is found, the patient should receive an apology and, if the error has caused injury, a proactive offer of resolution (which may include financial compensation). Finally, a key element of this process should not be overlooked: The appropriate clinicians should tell the patient what will be done to prevent similar errors, and those solutions should be promptly implemented ...

The flight is going well. When I look out of the window just before landing, I already know that I will miss Lesbos. If you had to judge a culture of a land and its inhabitants from the sky, I would think the Netherlands and the Dutch are pretty tight and rectilinear. All parcels of land are properly demarcated by fences or ditches. The roads are at right-angles, as are the canals and even the cows seem aligned in the same direction. I am back into a country where everything is organized and regulated. A country where, for ten years now, a discussion has been going on about whether an ambulance should arrive within fifteen or thirty minutes. A country where people receive financial compensation, if for part of the day they are without electricity. A country where people of a district protest against the arrival of another big supermarket. A country where dogs are no longer allowed in parks, lest a playing child steps into a turd. And it even gets more crazy: on my return to the centre of the ...
