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.

Important information in a lawsuit crazed world
One would have to be separated from society and the media to be unaware of the fact that medical errors happen and can be hidden for a time despite the effect of that error. Whether the error is surgical or medical in nature, there have been consequences and measures instituted to effect change, but there are still problems. The general public cannot view the profession as infallible. The affected can lobby for change, not merely fiscal reparation. The patient population and their families must be vigilant, and this book will help by providing information and examples.
By narrating this book in a clear, nonjudgemental manner, Narrator Jack has provided a great service to the authors and the audio readers.
