About this product
- DescriptionStates the author, Each year up to 98,000 patients die as a result of [medical] mistakes, more than are killed by motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS. Her book looks at what should happen after the damage--the injury or death of a patient--has occurred. Berlinger brings to bear on the issues the perspectives of Christian (and some Jewish) social ethics. Her focus is on the physical, financial, psychological, and spiritual needs of patients and families affected by medical error, and she concludes with a theory of forgiveness after harm. This book will be read by professionals and some students in bioethics, health policy, and religion.
