Started out ok, however, that girl's father really needed to cope better with his daughter's death. She shared responsibility in her death by not disclosing exactly what medications/drugs she was taking and by playing providers against each other. Even today, providers don't necessarily know if their patients are getting care from more than 1 person. Where is the personal accountability?? Par for the course for America. Blame someone else and let your money do the talking. Sick. I can't believe ...more

If you're in the medical field, this book might be interesting for you. If not, I highly recommend that you don't bother to pick it up. It's full of technical details that are, at times, hard to follow. It is repetitive. It takes way too long to get to the point. Overall, I do not recommend it. I disliked it so much, it took me over a year to read less than 300 pages. But I can claim success... I finally got through it.
Melissa
Bit of an exageration on the cover to blame her death all on the hazards of hospitals when it turns out she was doing cocaine, which certainly contributed to her death and wasn't confessed by her at her entrance to the hospital.

I've read this before, but something I saw recently made me want to browse it again. I love medical stuff.
