Every year, thirty-five million Americans become hospital patients and more than fifty million surgeries are performed. Each of those patients--whatever their resources--confronts the same obstacles to good, safe care. From a trip to the emergency room to open heart surgery, all patients can experience not just perplexing and impersonal care but serious communication and safety issues that can put them at risk. That's why The Patient's Checklist is so important. It addresses an enormous need, and yet there is no other book available that's like it. Based on firsthand knowledge, Elizabeth Bailey has created ten checklists that provide a simple system for better managing, monitoring, and participating in your hospital care. These checklists can play a big role in guarding against error and promoting compassion in care, so that a patient is not only “cured” but also “healed.”

Americans are afraid of their food. And for good reason. In 2011, the deadliest food-borne illness outbreak in a century delivered killer listeria bacteria on innocuous cantaloupe never before suspected of carrying that pathogen. Nearly 50 million Americans will get food poisoning this year. Spoiled, doctored or infected food will send more than 100,000 people to the hospital. Three thousand will die. We expect, even assume, our government will protect our food, but how often do you think a major U.S. food farm get inspected by federal or state officials? Once a year? Every harvest? Twice a decade? Try never. Eating Dangerously sheds light on the growing problem and introduces readers to the very real, very immediate dangers inherent in our food system. This two-part guide to our food system's problems and how consumers can help protect themselves is written by two seasoned journalists, who helped break the story of the 2011 listeria outbreak that killed 33 people. Michael Booth and Jennifer Brown, award-winning health and investigative journalists and parents themselves, answer pressing consumer questions about what's in the food supply, what "authorities" are and are not doing to clean it up, and how they can best feed their families without making food their full-time jobs. Both deeply informed and highly readable, Eating Dangerously explains to the American consumer how their food system works—and more importantly how it doesn’t work. It also dishes up course after course of useful, friendly advice gleaned from the cutting-edge laboratories, kitchens and courtrooms where the national food system is taking new shape. Anyone interested in knowing more about how their food makes it from field and farm to store and table will want the inside scoop on just how safe or unsafe that food may be. They will find answers and insight in these pages.
