Editorial Reviews


Bouncebacks is a medicalegal thrill ride! The authors have created a tremendously educational integration of medical facts and legal orientation intertwined with medical expert and deposition testimony including viewpoints of the actual plaintiff and defense attorneys involved in the litigation. This is a fast, educational and enjoyable read.

The cases of this book are frightening and feel awfully close. Because each feels like it could be mine tomorrow, the book does much more than entertain. The book is real, it is emotional, it is technical, and it is educational it should be mandatory reading for every practicing emergency physician. I still feel bad for the patients as well as the doctors in the situations, but hearing their tales made me better. There are lessons that I am taking away. This is an advanced course, written for skilled doctors who need to identify the unusual cases, recognize the rare events, and make great diagnoses based on subtle symptoms. It is a harsh reminder about how tough and uncertain the malpractice system is, but we do not need a reminder of that fear is a powerful motivator. Congratulations to the authors for an important book. It is still resonating with me.

Riveting is not a term I would typically use in describing a medical text, much less a medical-legal text. However, Weinstock and Klauer have indeed created a book that is not just educational, but also an enjoyable read. The authors do a literal postmortem exam on ten malpractice cases, focusing on medical records, trial transcripts, recollections of patients, family members and physicians, as well as commentaries by involved attorneys and expert witnesses from both sides. In addition, medical and legal experts not involved in the cases, provide guest commentary. Although written with emergency physicians in mind, physicians from all specialties would benefit from these in-depth analyses of selected medical malpractice cases.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rob Crane on March 9, 2012
Format: Paperback
Remember the apocryphal story told of first day of medical school in years past. "Look at the person to the left of you," intones the Dean, "look at the person to the right. One of the three of you will not be here by the end of the year." Those days are thankfully over. But, a more current and prescient observation would conclude, "Two of you are going to get sued for malpractice!" We all know the best defenses against lawsuits: empathy and thoroughness. However, medicine isn't easy under the best of circumstances, and the overly busy, complicated, fast-paced, slam-bam atmosphere of an emergency department creates even more room for error, even for the thoughtful and skilled.

Weinstock, et al, takes us through ten mystery cases, each engagingly described and accompanied by actual chart notes, detailed recollections of patient, families and physicians as well as verbatim court transcripts. Almost as chilling as the bad outcome is the very real cross-examination of the defendant physician. More importantly, each case is analyzed as an ongoing journey through land-mined territory. If you're a physician in training this is a wonderful, easily read, teaching tool. For those more seasoned, it's guaranteed to put the hairs up on the back of your neck.

This is a must have book for Emergency Medicine Physicians. It is such an entertaining book, I would recommend it to everyone; however, it does have quite a bit of medical language that people who are not in the healthcare field may not completely understand. Not only is it packed with great stories and information, it is so engaging that You won't want to put it down. Real life examples of bouncebacks, related lawsuits, and outcomes keep you glued to the book while giving pointers on how to avoid these disastrous pitfalls yourself. This is one of the best books I have read and I highly recommend it

Every Emergency Physician should read this. It is entertaining and at the same time terrifying ...(you know that patient you saw last night...?). Kudos to the authors for putting together a very well thought-out book. Eric Senn MD FAAEM
