Terry's personal experience shines through in this very practical and life-saving guide. He describes how you can protect yourself or those you love in hospital. He covers the many different hazards and how to reduce the risks that they create and how to form a respectful partnership with healthcare professionals who care - but who are often so busy they can make serious mistakes.
