United States Department of Labor (DOL) data shows that those who work irregular, extended, or long shifts may be particularly vulnerable to worker fatigue. Among the different types of workers that appear to be most impacted by fatigue in the workplace, the DOL points to those working in the transportation, hospitality and medical fields.

Why being conscious of time is critical when scheduling a surgery

When it comes to complications that can arise out of a surgical procedure, they can occur for a number of reasons.

You may have also simply scheduled your surgery too late in the day.

The law does not require carrying uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on your auto insurance policy in New Mexico as it does in some states.

These may require multiple surgeries, prolonged hospital stays, numerous prescriptions, physical therapy and other aids to your recovery.
