Ashes

Ashes
Ashes By: Bernard Lewis Rottschaefer, MD Uli is excited having discovered scores of previously unsuspected relatives upon receiving his Ancestry.com DNA results. Before Uli has a chance to meet his new relations, he is arrested for a 1964 murder of a Pennsylvania State Trooper during a bank robbery. Ashes is a fast-moving, delightful melding between fiction and nonfiction, which includes snippets from an actual federal case that lays open the innermost workings of the federal criminal justice system. Caught in the Machiavellian clutches of a federal criminal prosecution, Uli leads the reader through an illuminating journey across the United States and even into Cuba. His trials sow the seeds for serious seldom foreseen downsides to the almost vertical legal playing field favoring the prosecution. Ashes provides insight into how excessive prosecutorial tilting may inadvertently strengthen the Constitutional survivalist paramilitary groups. Ashes brings to light the horrific fact that eight percent of American adult citizens are convicted felons—by far the highest percentage for any civilized nation—and explains to the reader how and why less than one percent of federal criminally indicted defendants are found not guilty. Ashes is a fictional read that brings to sharp focus areas of the federal criminal justice system which have been carefully concealed just beneath the surface, employing an enjoyable fictional storyline that will thoroughly entertain any reader irrespective as to whether they are concerned about justice or not.

Plague Years

release date: Jun 10, 2020
Plague Years
In 1992, Dr. Ross A. Slotten signed more death certificates in Chicago—and, by inference, the state of Illinois—than anyone else. As a family physician, he was trained to care for patients from birth to death, but when he completed his residency in 1984, he had no idea that many of his future patients would be cut down in the prime of their lives. Among those patients were friends, colleagues, and lovers, shunned by most of the medical community because they were gay and HIV positive. Slotten wasn’t an infectious disease specialist, but because of his unique position as both a gay man and a young physician, he became an unlikely pioneer, swept up in one of the worst epidemics in modern history. Plague Years is an unprecedented first-person account of that epidemic, spanning not just the city of Chicago but four continents as well. Slotten provides an intimate yet comprehensive view of the disease’s spread alongside heartfelt portraits of his patients and his own conflicted feelings as a medical professional, drawn from more than thirty years of personal notebooks. In telling the story of someone who was as much a potential patient as a doctor, Plague Years sheds light on the darkest hours in the history of the LGBT community in ways that no previous medical memoir has.

The Long Fix: Solving America's Health Care Crisis with Strategies that Work for Everyone

release date: May 26, 2020
The Long Fix: Solving America's Health Care Crisis with Strategies that Work for Everyone
It may not be a quick fix, but this concrete action plan for reform can create a less costly and healthier system for all. Beyond the outrageous expense, the quality of care varies wildly, and millions of Americans can’t get care when they need it. This is bad for patients, bad for doctors, and bad for business. In The Long Fix, physician and health care CEO Vivian S. Lee, MD, cuts to the heart of the health care crisis. The problem with the way medicine is practiced, she explains, is not so much who’s paying, it’s what we are paying for. Insurers, employers, the government, and individuals pay for every procedure, prescription, and lab test, whether or not it makes us better—and that is both backward and dangerous. Dr. Lee proposes turning the way we receive care completely inside out. When doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies are paid to keep people healthy, care improves and costs decrease. Lee shares inspiring examples of how this has been done, from physicians’ practices that prioritize preventative care, to hospitals that adapt lessons from manufacturing plants to make them safer, to health care organizations that share online how much care costs and how well each physician is caring for patients. Using clear and compelling language, Dr. Lee paints a picture that is both realistic and optimistic. It may not be a quick fix, but her concrete action plan for reform—for employers and other payers, patients, clinicians, and policy makers—can reinvent health care, and create a less costly, more efficient, and healthier system for all.

When We Do Harm

release date: Apr 01, 2020
When We Do Harm
Medical mistakes are more pervasive than we think. How can we improve outcomes? An acclaimed MD’s rich stories and research explore patient safety. Patients enter the medical system with faith that they will receive the best care possible, so when things go wrong, it’s a profound and painful breach. Medical science has made enormous strides in decreasing mortality and suffering, but there’s no doubt that treatment can also cause harm, a significant portion of which is preventable. In When We Do Harm, practicing physician and acclaimed author Danielle Ofri places the issues of medical error and patient safety front and center in our national healthcare conversation. Drawing on current research, professional experience, and extensive interviews with nurses, physicians, administrators, researchers, patients, and families, Dr. Ofri explores the diagnostic, systemic, and cognitive causes of medical error. She advocates for strategic use of concrete safety interventions such as checklists and improvements to the electronic medical record, but focuses on the full-scale cultural and cognitive shifts required to make a meaningful dent in medical error. Woven throughout the book are the powerfully human stories that Dr. Ofri is renowned for. The errors she dissects range from the hardly noticeable missteps to the harrowing medical cataclysms. While our healthcare system is—and always will be—imperfect, Dr. Ofri argues that it is possible to minimize preventable harms, and that this should be the galvanizing issue of current medical discourse.
