The Role of a Plastic Surgery Expert in Medical Malpractice Cases

TASA ID: 11869

When it comes to medicine, patients trust their physician to improve their health and enhance their appearance. Unfortunately, things can go wrong in some unfortunate cases, thus leading to possible medical malpractice. It is important to recognize that a complication in-and-of-itself is not medical malpractice. 

Even under the best of practices and circumstances, complications can become apparent.  Often times, a plastic surgery expert can provide input as to assessing the Standard of Care and identifying possible negligence or errors.

Elderly fall victims are susceptible to a wide range of debilitating injuries, including brain injuries and fractured hips, wrists, knees, and other broken bones. Sadly, many elderly fall victims don’t survive their injuries. Nationwide, 34,000 fatal falls among the elderly were recorded in 2019.

Hybrid Work Could Save Knowledge Workers’ Jobs From AI

TASA ID: 22108

As the world slowly recovers from the pandemic, many knowledge workers find themselves at a crossroads. On one hand, the prospect of returning to the office stirs up a cocktail of dread and nostalgia. On the other hand, the threat of AI-driven job elimination looms large. It's like being caught between a rock and a hard place, or more aptly, between a swivel chair and a supercomputer.

But let's take a step back and examine the situation. The office, despite its occasional inconveniences, offers a unique environment for collaboration, innovation, and social interaction. It's the proverbial watering hole where ideas are exchanged, relationships are forged, and corporate culture is nurtured. That’s how I encourage my clients to frame the conversation in formulating their approach to hybrid work policy.

Governments Lead the Way in Embracing Flexible Work

TASA ID: 22108

It’s a sign of major disruption when governments are ahead of the curve compared to major companies, but that’s exactly what’s happening with hybrid work. Flexibility has become a cornerstone of the modern public sector workplace, as we can see from recent federal government negotiations with workers and New York City's agreement with its largest municipal union. It's clear that flexibility is more important than ever, and private companies would do well to take notice and implement a data-driven, employee-centric approach to hybrid work.

Frontline Workers Gain Remote Work Benefits in Tight Labor Market

TASA ID: 22108

The unemployment rate is surprisingly low, at 3.7%, shocking economists who expected a slowdown in hiring and rising unemployment rate. Frontline work such as healthcare led job growth. Frontline workers are in high demand, and the competition for their services is fierce. Yet wage growth cooled to .3%, the smallest rise since August 2021. That means employers are offering more jobs, but not offering higher wages to attract staff, likely due to fears of a recession, or at least an economic slowdown.

In this setting, non-wage benefits make a crucial differentiator in recruiting and retaining frontline workers. And there’s a surprising benefit that’s cheap to offer, yet incredibly desirable: remote work. In fact, a survey of 1,500 U.S. workers by benefits provider Unum found that after health insurance, flexible/remote work represented the most highly desired benefit. Having consulted for 22 organizations on hybrid and remote work, I’ve seen these benefits boost retention and recruitment, improve productivity and engagement, and cut costs. You might be surprised to hear that my experience applies to frontline settings as well, such as in two hospitals where I helped establish hybrid work programs for frontline healthcare staff.
