One thing you shouldn't have to worry about is leaving the operating room with more than just the stitches you expected; yet, for many Ohio patients every year, this is exactly what happens.

Did your baby experience nerve injury during delivery?

Delivering your baby girl into the world at your local Columbus hospital did not go as smoothly as you would have hoped.

Anne Valentine Takes Part in "The Concert for US"

Partner Anne Valentine and the rest of the Harmony Project took part in their annual winter concert last Thursday at Nationwide Arena. The Harmony Project, a community service organization working to unite our neighbors and neighborhoods to tear down the social, cultural, and geographic divides, was founded in 2009 by Director David Brown. "The Concert for US" was a celebration of eight years of tremendous growth from just 100 members and performing at the Lincoln Theater to having multiple choirs consisting of 1,000 voices and performing at Nationwide Arena. More information about the Harmony Project can be found here.

This is because there are 30 states that partially protect apologies from being admitted as evidence, but there are now 8 states, including Ohio, that offer full protection to apologies.
