The push for transparency must also include transparency as to who does procedures, what the level of training and experience must be, as it obvious from this book. A fairly quick read, and highly upsetting.
In recent years, the FDA has been cracking down on payments made to doctors by device companies and recent regulations have been fairly effective in limiting those payments. Informed consent however is another matter. Books like Collateral Damage highlight the lax regulations concerning these disclosures. Informed consent should be open, clear and unambiguous. Hopefully books like this and others will help bring focus to this need so patients can feel confident they understand what they are getting into.
Their experience and pain is a heads up to maybe stop this from happening to you.
One man tries to help his wife and get to the bottom of how this could happen. It reads like a medical thriller, but unfortunately is true. A fight against medical ego, corruption, payback by the corporations who exploit the medical work and the very powerful medical institutions.
This is a must read for anyone who is a consumer of medical resources or works for them.
