Shocking Cause of Death: They Forgot to Read Her Chart

It’s shocking what happened to Joe’s mom. First, staff at a major hospital forgot the read her chart. Next, they failed to give crucial information about her care to a night-shift intern. Finally, they overlooked standard procedures designed to prevent a fall.

Sadly, Joe’s mom died after these hospital mistakes.

And Joe? Well, he certainly had all the evidence to sue the hospital for all they were worth. But he was not your “average Joe.” In fact, he is Joe Graedon, one of America’s most respected and accomplished self-care experts and natural health writers, along with his wife, Terry.

After Joe’s mother died following these hospital mistakes, he and Terry decided to try to fix the system. They served on the hospital’s Patient Advocacy Council, and on a committee reporting to the board.

Joe and Terry learned that over 500,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical screwups — misdiagnoses, unnecessary surgeries, hospital-acquired infections, drug reactions, and more. In fact, medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in America, right behind heart disease and cancer.

Now the Graedons have published their findings in Top Screwups Doctors Make and How to Avoid Them. The book tells you exactly what you need to know to save yourself and your loved ones from fatal hospital errors.
