Up to 100,000 Americans die each year as a result of some form of medical mistake. And this is just the reported number of deaths. The total number of deaths and other disabilities is estimated to be triple (or more) of what's actually reported. This book takes you behind the scenes to expose heartbreaking stories of medical malpractice, careless misdiagnosis, and downright neglect on the part of health care personnel across the country. Victims are young and old, healthy and infirm, who innocently entrusted their lives to those who took an oath to 'do no harm'. Yet doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, and other medical professionals cover up mistakes every day. This is the complete story of the breadth and depth of medical mistakes. Gibson puts real names and faces to the countless that suffer and die every day because of ineptitude, poor quality, and lack of management in a system that is badly broken. Doctors and nurses also provide first-hand accounts of what actually goes on behind the curtains, describing the mistakes that do happen, but also how terrifyingly close every practitioner is, every moment, to disaster.
