|We are bombarded by stories of wrong diagnoses, hospital dangers, a medical care system spinning out of control. As an individual, we are led to believe, one is powerless. Not so!
Here's what YOU can do when someone you love is seriously ill:
- Prevent most misdiagnoses: Track down Red Flags in the Medical Record that point to dangerous errors of fact and reasoning.
- Protect from hospital disasters: Learn to be a Vigilant Sentinel, on the alert for and coping with understaffed wards, unresponsive physicians, and equipment failures.
All you need is a great incentive (your patient), logic, and an eye for detail. Oh yes, and an experienced guide: Me.
