From the world leader in fascinating facts and amusing true stories comes a book full of tales of health care gone wrong. It’ll make you sick (with laughter).
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.
The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a tight-knit group of loyal and skilled writers, researchers, and editors who have been working as a team for years. The BRI understands the habits of a very special market—Throne Sitters—and devotes itself to providing amazing facts and conversation pieces.
