Pat’s November Recommendation

Unaccountable by Dr. Marty Makary

“I watched an interview with Dr. Marty Makary and was then very interested to read his book Unaccountable.  It’s a book about what hospitals won’t tell you and how transparency can revolutionize health care.  Here are some things that are discussed: Medical mistakes are the fifth leading causes of death in the United States.  The number of patients killed by preventable medical errors every year is equivalent to four jumbo jets crashing each week! Wow! I didn’t like reading that statistic!”
