This is an explosive account of gross malpractice, medical incompetence, and organisational cover-ups in an age of global healthcare. They called him Doctor Death. His patients suffered serious infections, internal bleeding from nicked arteries, and the mutilation of healthy organs - and they were the lucky ones. Dr Jayat Patel's reign of terror at Bundaberg Base Hospital in Australia should never have happened - he had already been banned from any surgical practice in the US. "Sick to Death" is an explosive account of how a life-threatening combination of a highly manipulative personality and a hospital administration happy to look the other way lead to the death of up to 87 people. After two years of professional incompetence and organizational cover-ups, a courageous nurse finally blew the whistle on the shocking atrocities. With its first-hand accounts and intelligent narrative, this is a compellingly shocking read.
