The New York Times is reporting that the Peloton company has issued a product recall on their treadmills after apparently initially refusing requests to do so by federal agencies. According to records, this applies to specific models of the Tread and Tread+ treadmills that were associated with quite a few product injury related claims. At least one of those accident injury cases involved a child that suffered fatal injuries after he fell and was pulled underneath the treadmill. Officials say that the child was just six years old at the time when he was killed in the treadmill accident. They note that this is a well-described type of treadmill injury that is well known to manufacturers of exercise equipment. In addition, this specific treadmill has been associated with a different type of accident where the heavy video screen console can collapse and fall on to someone below. Faulty product liability specialists say that special care must be taken during the design, manufacturing, labeling and marketing of exercise equipment like treadmills to prevent unnecessary personal injury or even wrongful death. The company who manufacturers and markets the Tread+ treadmill has expressed its regret for not listening to advice and requests to recall the potentially dangerous devices earlier. While they seem to have admitted to making a mistake in this area, it must be determined if any further injuries or deaths were suffered by the public during this delay.

Concerns have come to light about state medical boards avoiding discipline of doctors who have significant medical malpractice claims against them. Examples have been shown where physicians have even been suspended from hospitals but no report or actions took place within the medical board. Accusations have been made that these oversight boards have avoided taking actions against the medical license of these healthcare practitioners despite serious public safety concerns. Some have noted that these medical boards are most comprised of and controlled by other doctors. Public health activists say that patient safety must be the primary concern. They warn that inaction by the oversight committees and boards may be an issue of negligence that can lead to significant consequences. A doctor who is under investigation for medical negligence or hospital error can go on to commit more mistakes if nothing is done to correct the problem. Safety advocates believe that it is the duty of the boards to inquire as to the seriousness of accusations and potential for future hard. Based on this initial inquiry they can take action to prevent further harm or doctor mistake while a more comprehensive investigation is undertaken. Some instances require retraining of doctors and staff to avoid delayed diagnosis, surgical mistakes and even a wrong diagnosis. Avoidance of taking real action against a potentially negligent doctor can be due to doctors wanting to protect their own, according to some commentators. However, this may lead to a dangerous situation and lack of public trust in the system meant to protect them from medical negligence. You can find out more about... Read more
