For more than 25 years, there’s always been a home in Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader for those stories about doctor visits or routine surgeries gone horribly wrong–the wrong limb getting amputated, the wrong person getting a transplant, the nurse who didn’t notice her patient had died…for three days. Because we never get tired of reading about big boo-boos (as long as they’re happening to someone else), here is a whole book of the troubling and funny stories of when good health care goes bad.
Read all about:
* The woman who needed her gall bladder out…so she removed it herself
* The man who waited in an emergency room…for three weeks
* The heart surgeon who got caught drawing his signature on his work
* And many more stories of dreadful doctors, hospital horrors, and bad medicine.
