STOCKTON, Calif.  —  The family of a retired California policeman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging a doctor abandoned attempts to save the man from a heart attack in order to steal his Rolex wristwatch.

The doctor, 32-year-old Cleveland James Enmon of Hermosa Beach, Calif. is also facing grand theft charges in the case.

Jerry Kubena Sr, a retired Manteca police lieutenant, died June 1 at St. Joseph's Medical Center. After he died, nurses noticed his watch missing and a watch bulge in Enmon's pocket, according to the 15-page civil lawsuit.

The suit, filed by the Kubena's children, alleges that Enmon "formed the intent" to pocket their father's watch while treating him, and at that time the emergency room doctor "abandoned his efforts to resuscitate decedent, leaving decedent to die so that he would not be around to reclaim his wat ...

A body left decomposing in a hospital for four days was the result of "individual human error" rather than a breakdown in procedure, according to The Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

A man's body was moved to a viewing room within the mortuary at the major teaching hospital and was left there for several days, Fairfax newspapers reported Tuesday.

The body was found after staff investigated a bad smell. But the hospital said that, if staff had followed correct procedures, the incident would not have happened.

"While the hospital has documented processes for the viewing of deceased persons, in this instance it was individual human error that caused the body to remain, inappropriately, in the viewing area,'' the hospital said in a statement.

The worker involved in the incident was reprimanded and policies were being reinforced to staff, the hospital s ... Read more »

Talk about a super “Scooby” snack! A take-out restaurant in Bristol, England, is serving up a burger so massive – it packs more calories than the government recommends a man or woman eat in an entire day.

The towering burger is called the “Super Scooby.” It's 6-inches tall, weighs more than 3-pounds and packs a whopping 2,645 calories — more than the 2,550 recommended for men and much more than the 1,940 recommended for women.

Spiros Lomvardos, who co-owns the Jolly Fryer fast food joint with his brother, Andreas, said the idea of the super-sized snack started out as a joke.

“A few months ago, me and my brother and another gentleman, Karl Ford, who’s an employee, were sitting at work on a dead quiet night when we saw an ad from a well-known burger chain,” Lomvardos told FO ... Read more »

Who are the world’s best and worst lovers? A new poll of 15,000 women found German men to be the worst because of their "smelly odor" with English lovers coming in a close second because they "let women do all the work."

The poll, done by global research site www.onepoll.com, asked women from 20 countries to rate men on their abilities in bed and give reasons for their answers, the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph reported.

Coming in third on the worst lovers list were Swedish men because the ladies said they were "a bit too quick", while men from Holland were deemed "too rough."

As for American men, they rounded out the Top 5 on the worst lovers list due to their "dominating" ways in the bedroom.

When it came to the best lovers in the world, Spanish men topped the list followed by Brazilians and Italians.

BISMARCK, N.D. —  Amanda Klinger can remember when Bismarck and Mandan were not connected by a bridge, and people had to use a ferry boat to cross the Missouri River.

Klinger celebrated her 105th birthday Monday in a Bismarck nursing home.

She rooms with her 84-year-old daughter, Verdell. Her 91-year-old sister, Ruth Lindblum, also lives in the home.

Amanda Klinger's parents came to the United States from Norway. She was born in 1904 on a farm near Elbow Lake, Minn., before the family homesteaded in North Dakota the following year, living in a sod house.

She remembers growing up on the farm near Voltaire and later Turtle Lake, but farm life wasn't for her. She said she decided, "I'll never marry a farmer because I didn't want to live on a farm."

Klinger has 14 great-great-grandchildren. She says she feels great.

As for any advice, she says, "Liv ... Read more »

Starbucks (SBUX: 20.56, -0.06, -0.29%) launched an instant brew on Tuesday as the upscale coffee giant looks to take a slice of the $21 billion global instant-coffee market.

Twenty years in the making, Starbucks Via will be available at all U.S. locations and eventually in supermarkets. The company is introducing a taste challenge this weekend to invite customers to try to tell the difference between the new brew and its freshly-brewed counterpart.

“We know that as more people try this product, more people will like it and adopt it into their daily routine so they will never be without great coffee,” CEO Howard Schultz said in a statement. “We’re so confident that you won’t be able to tell the diff ... Read more »

Scheduling your sex life around PTA meetings and trips to the dry cleaner is better than no sex at all.

But nothing is better than spontaneous sex.

Truth be told, busy couples in long-term relationships often need to schedule "date nights" -- setting aside blocks of time for lovemaking to ensure things don't become stale.

But there's nothing better than just doing it. No planning, no thinking ...

There is something incredibly sexy about sex that’s straight from the source. Spontaneous sex has been hailed for not only grabbing a lover’s interest, but maintaining it. It spikes a relationship’s lust factor, making lovemaking more exciting. Plus, when needed, it can get lovers out of a slump.

And it caters to our carnal nature in its "must have now, no ... Read more »

A 14-year-old British girl died after receiving a cervical cancer vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline, but a link between the death and the drug has not yet been established, health officials said on Monday.

The teenager, named in reports as Natalie Morton, fell ill after she was given the Cervarix vaccination against the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) at her school in Coventry, central England, as part of a national immunization program. She later died in a hospital.

"The incident happened shortly after the girl had received her HPV vaccine in the school," Dr. Caron Grainger, joint director for Public Health for NHS (National Health Service) Coventry and Coventry City Council, said in a statement.

"No link can be made between the death and the vaccine until all the facts are known and a post mortem takes place," Grainger said. "We are conducting an urgent and full investigation i ... Read more »

VALHALLA, N.Y.  —  A New York City girl who survived a 7-story fall says the medical care she's received has inspired her to want to become a doctor.

Eight-year-old Destiny Antonio fell from a broken window in her family's Bronx public housing apartment in August.

She's recovering from a shattered hip and broken leg at a Westchester County children's hospital. A metal rod and pins keep her hip in place. Doctors aren't sure whether she'll walk normally again.

Destiny remains in good spirits. She wants to study medicine so she can help others.

Her mother, Robin Antonio, says she'd complained about the window, which shouldn't open more than 4 1/4 inches.

The Housing Authority didn't immediately return a message.

SYDNEY, Australia —  A husband and wife were jailed Monday for the manslaughter of their baby, who died after they chose to use homeopathic remedies rather than conventional medicine to treat her severe skin disorder.

Thomas Sam, a 42-year old college lecturer in homeopathy, and his wife Manju, 37, of Sydney, were convicted in June of the manslaughter of their nine-month-old daughter Gloria, who died of septicemia and malnutrition in May 2002.

The Indian-born, university-educated parents had faced a maximum penalty of 25 years each in prison if convicted. Instead, New South Wales state Supreme Court Justice Peter Johnson ordered Thomas Sam to serve at least six years in jail, with a maximum sentence of eight years, and Manju to serve at least four years in jail with a maximum of five years and four months. The couple wept as they were sentenced.

Johnson said it was c ... Read more »

When you say the word "bodybuilding," the name that instantly comes to mind is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold has been crowned the "king" by many in the bodybuilding field, as he really did take the sport to a whole new level.

As such, many involved in bodybuilding today look up to him and try to recreate the programs he used, hoping to sculpt a body that resembles the one he built. In doing so, you’ll fare best if you can recreate the Arnold Schwarzenegger workout routine as outlined in his book, The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. This program was utilized when he was initially working on developing a good foundation of mass, in his early 20s. At the end of this period, Schwarzenegger weighed in at a solid 240 pounds, due to the fact that he focused on building the greatest proportion of his strength early on with this program.

If you haven't had a chance to pick up his book, we've ... Read more »

More than half a million U.S. children yearly have bad reactions or side effects from widely used medicines that require medical treatment and sometimes hospitalization, new research shows.

Children younger than age 5 are most commonly affected. Penicillin and other prescription antibiotics are among drugs causing the most problems, including rashes, stomachaches and diarrhea.

Parents should pay close attention when their children are started on medicines since "first-time medication exposures may reveal an allergic reaction," said lead author Dr. Florence Bourgeois, a pediatrician with Children's Hospital in Boston.

Doctors also should tell parents about possible symptoms for a new medication, she said.

The study appears in October's Pediatrics, released Monday.

It's based on national statis ... Read more »

Indonesia's heaviest-ever newborn drew curious crowds Friday to a hospital where the boy named Akbar — or the Great in Arabic — came into the world at a record 19.2 pounds.

Akbar Risuddin was born to a diabetic mother in a 40-minute Cesarean delivery that was complicated because of his unusual weight and size, Dr. Binsar Sitanggang said.

"I'm very happy that my baby and his mother are in good health," father Muhammad Hasanuddin said Friday. "I hope I can afford to feed the baby enough, because he needs more milk than other babies."

PHOTOS: WORLD'S BIGGEST BABIES

Crowds pushed to get a peek of the extraordinary boy, who measured nearly 24 inches when he was born Monday, at the Abdul Manan hospital in the northern town of Kisaran on the island of Sumatra. ... Read more »

Imagine Todd and Julia Grovenburg’s surprise when doctors found not one, but two babies on Julia’s ultrasound – and then told the parents the babies weren’t twins, ABC News reported.

Doctors think Julia and Todd conceived baby girl Jillian first, and two-and-a-half weeks later conceived baby boy Hudson, according to statements from KFSM-TV in Ft. Smith-Fayetteville, Ark.

Jillian and Hudson have different due dates, and this rare development is called superfetation – when a mother conceives another child while pregnant.

“It does really sound like this is a true case of different conception times for these children,” said Dr. Karen Boyle of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. “When the woman had her ultrasound initially, they saw one sack, one baby developing, and that baby had a certain gestational age; then they noticed a sec ...

A USF doctor convicted of withholding evidence from law enforcement in April received a 10-day suspension without pay from USF Health last week.

Dr. David Ciesla, associate professor of surgery and director of the trauma/critical care division for the USF medical school, received a letter of discipline Sept. 9 outlining his punishment.

The days when Ciesla will serve the 10-day suspension will be determined in “consultation” with the Office of Faculty Affairs, Stephen Klasko, vice president of USF Health, said in the letter.

The suspension will be the only time pay will be deducted from Ciesla’s annual salary, said University spokesman Michael Hoad.

On April 21, Ciesla found a bullet while performing surgery on a man who was shot by a deputy U.S. marshal. Ciesla took the bullet out of the patient’s abdomen and put it in his pocket, Dr. Sergio Alvarez, who assisted Ciesla during surgery, s ... Read more »

MINEOLA, N.Y. —  A patient who was under anesthesia when a brain surgeon refused to step in for a no-show colleague is suing both doctors as well as the New York hospital.

Jennifer Ronca of Tunkhannock, Pa., sued Thursday in state court in Mineola. The suit seeks unspecified damages against the surgeons and North Shore University Hospital-Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

She is claiming "carelessness and negligence" after the surgery had to be postponed.

Attorney Anthony M. Sola speaks for the hospital and the doctors, Paolo Bolognese and Thomas Milhorat. He says that the delay didn't injure the woman and that she later had successful surgery.

The state has filed 14 citations against the hospital.

MANY of the nearly 30 million Americans who suffer from migraines end up feeling like guinea pigs. Chronic patients — those who are laid low 15 or more days a month — often cycle through drug after drug in search of relief. They also contend with side effects like mental sluggishness and stomach upset. Treatment involves guesswork because doctors have not pinpointed what causes migraines, nor do they know which drugs will best help which patients.


“It can be a merry-go-round going from medication to medication in pursuit of control,” said Dr. Roger K. Cady, the vice president of the board for the National Headache Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to patient education. 

No wonder that earlier this month, news of a surgical “cure” that touts a high success rate ricocheted worldwide. The dou ... Read more »
