Book profiles patient safety errors

Cape Cod Times, June 19, 2008

The patient experience is profiled in in a new book about deadly hospital errors, "Fatal Care: Survive in the U.S. Health System." The book's author says he wrote it to alert the public to the fact that 98,000 patient deaths occur as a result of medical errors in U.S. hospitals annually, and about half of them are preventable. There is little public information available to help patients research a hospital's safety records before seeking care there, he adds.
