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.
Also available in print book format: Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Germophobia.
