I have been a registered nurse, nurse practitioner and most importantly a patient advocate for over 20 years. I have worked in hospitals, homes and as a private consultant, always teaching patients how to speak up for themselves and to make well informed healthcare decisions that are right for them and help them to avoid all types of Medical Errors. The many things I have seen in healthcare led me write "What Did the Doctor Just Say." In it are all the steps every patient needs to take to remain safe in the healthcare system and avoid medical errors. My personal goal is help to save 100,000 people from the horrors of a medical error and I wrote What Did the Doctor Just Say? to help make that happen.

A Medical Error Could Take Your Life

Every year in America medical errors, the mistakes made by doctors and others take the lives of an estimated 100,000 patients. Hundreds of patients die needlessly, everyday because they do not understand what the doctor is saying or how to make safe healthcare decisions. “What Did The Doctor Just Say? will help you avoid falling victim to medical error by teaching you how to understand what the doctor says and how to ensure he understands you too. Once you and the doctor are “speaking the same language” you will be able to ask questions and gather the information you need to make high quality, safe healthcare decisions.

Through the use of structured question sets you will learn: how to hire a good doctor and fire a bad one, how to manage your illnesses and to take your medications safely, you will learn how to choose the best hospitals, and much more.
Written in plain English by an experienced educator who knows the difficulty over 40 million people have understanding the medical language, What Did The Doctor Just say? is an informative, easy to read guide to patient safety that could help to save your life. This book is a must for anyone interested in safe healthcare.
