Millions of Americans suffer from indifferent, outdated health care; an estimated 40,000 incidents of medical harm happen every day. The good news is that you can prevent this from happening to you or a family member. Better yet, you can find the very best care in the world. Patrick Malone’s sensible advice and real-life anecdotes will inspire you to take charge of your own health care, make the best choices, and avoid serious harm. With the “Necessary Nine”—the essential steps to finding the best medical care—The Life You Save offers vital information such as:
• The single most important question you can ask your doctor • When to know you have symptoms your doctor should not shrug off • Checklists to help you get out of the hospital in one piece
• Where to locate the best surgeons and safest hospitals
