Patient Safety - Protect yourself from Medical Errors is now online at www.safetyforpatients.in
All of us will be patients some day. What can we do to ensure that we get the best medical care when we fall ill?
Medical errors can be a nightmare - both for patients, and for doctors. However, this is one of those topics which we prefer to sweep under the carpet, because it can be so emotionally charged.
This book provides a holistic overview of medical errors from multiple perspectives. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, insurers and patients themselves all need to work together to promote patient safety.
Starting with the basics as to why medical errors are still so common, this book highlights what needs to be done to keep patients safe.
Reading this book may help to save your life, or that of a loved one.
