Most people, over the course of their lives, are likely to spend time in a hospital. What many may not realise is that the risks of a hospital stay can outweigh the benefits. Sometimes hospitalisation is essential - for trauma, life-threatening emergencies or complex surgical procedures. But despite the benefits of modern medicine, hospitals harm thousands of patients each year and many more suffer serious or fatal drug side effects. Learn how to protect yourself! HOSPITALS AND HEALTH looks at how hospital care got on the wrong track, from historical and economic perspectives. It then offers suggestions for minimising the risks of a hospital stay and ways to improve your own experience. Good nutrition is the key - to boost your immune system, speed recovery from illness and reduce your need for drugs. And you'll learn how to become your own health-care advocate. The book provides tips for choosing the best hospitals, nursing care, doctors and surgeons. You'll be armed with the knowledge you need to demand the best treatment possible.
By asserting control of health decisions, you can steer clear of unnecessary risks and, if hospital treatment is unavoidable, increase the chances of success. Take charge of your health care with HOSPITALS AND HEALTH.
