-Atul Gawande, New York Times bestselling author of The Checklist Manifesto
"Elizabeth Bailey's book puts a human face on the devastating toll medical errors have on patients and their families, and clearly shows that when we use checklists to improve the quality of care, we save lives. I have seen the power of this important tool; using checklists in a hospital setting, we nearly eliminated bloodstream infections, a preventable disease that kills about as many people every year as breast cancer. Imagine what the simple checklists in this book can do for you."
-Peter J. Pronovost, MD, PhD, FCCM, co-author, with Eric Vohr, of Safe Patients, Smart Hospitals: How One Doctor's Checklist Can Help Us Change Health Care from the Inside Out
--Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

So what? I KNOW how I will die! Doctored and Nursed to death in a corporate setting!
Health Insurance Corporation. Hospital Corporation. Hmmm... If the right one doesn't get you the left one surely will.
The GOOD part is that these corporations WILL collect from Medicare and my other insurance! I'll be dead. They will be richer for it...
I have watched stupid stuff happen to me and to other people I know in a local hospital. If you haven't given it any thought maybe you should. NEVER EVER go into a hospital alone...and take this book. It might help if you start collecting "medical' books too. READ them!
Find out if YOUR hospital has a Patient Advocate BEFORE you go then call them and call your Lawyer...
Things ain't what they used to be!

Fact is, the checklists cover most of the concerns we should indeed be
"functionally paranoid" about. My only hope is that it is updated every 5
years AND an edition is released that covers group homes for us elderly.
Absolutely worth the small portion of your hard-earned social security check.
