Medical mistakes are occurring with alarming frequency in this country.

You may have dismissed these storiesMoreMedical mistakes are occurring with alarming frequency in this country. Nightly newscasts and daily newspapers tell of botched surgeries, mistaken patient identities, careless overdoses, and neglected diagnoses. You may have dismissed these stories as unfortunate mistakes, misunderstandings, or just isolated incidents with the occasional bad doctor. Wall of Silence reveals that these medical mistakes are not rare incidents. In fact, the real-life stories in this book show that medical mistakes increasing in frequency-and worse, that the system is designed more to cover up these errors than prevent them. With searing outrage and heartfelt compassion for the victims of medical mistakes, Gibson and Singh put human faces to the tragic numbers we read and hear about.
