Thousands of U.S. children are improperly medicated each year

Children wrongly medicated in USEvery eight minutes, a child in the United States is improperly medicated at home -- that according to a new study published this week in the journal Pediatrics. Double-dosing, whereby a parent or guardian accidentally gives a child the same medication twice, accounted for a quarter of all mistakes.

Thankfully, the vast majority of mismeasurements and double doses weren't fatal, but the numbers -- which many experts say are on the conservative side -- suggest moms and dads in the United States need to be much more careful when dosing out meds to their children.

Nigeria Ebola outbreak declared over, but others in region still reeling

Nigeria Ebola freeThe World Health Organization (WHO) called Nigeria a “spectacular success story” Monday after it declared the country free of Ebola. It has been 42 days — twice the disease's maximum incubation period — since the last person suspected of contracting the disease tested negative.
