A Neurosurgeon Reveals How Our Health-care System Puts Patients at Risk

Book - 2017
Rate this:
The Institute of Medicine released a landmark report, which revealed that as many as 250,000 Americans die every year as a result of medical error. In Malpractice, neurosurgeon and attorney Dr. Lawrence Schlachter makes a case that most patients enter the system without any idea of the risks they face, due to a medical culture that denies there is a patient safety problem. He argues that medical culture actively avoids transparency, perpetuates an atmosphere of blind defence to doctors, and protects dangerous doctors from accountability.
