It’s hard to find many positive statistics from hospitals these days. Preventable deaths are third only to heart disease and cancer as the number one killer of patients. As hospitals try to accommodate nurses schedule preferences of 4 days a week with long shifts, Patient care is experiencing killer drops in effectiveness and proficiency. The problem stems from the lack of communication between hospital staff and their patients. And with patients having the most to lose the responsibility is resting on their shoulders. This book hopes to help patients ask the right questions and prevent deaths based on simple human error.
