From the Publisher
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.
