Overview

Dismayed by the dangerous, deceitful, and deadly practices of New York's Montefiore Medical Center, their doctors, and lawyers who are hired to cover-up their abuses; 23 Days at Montefiore journeys the path of a patient advocate fighting to save the life of an elderly woman forced to suffer multiple experimental surgeries. She also observes the suffering of other patients and a systemic practice of abuse.

A heart-wrenching read, this book explores 23 days of torment, denial of patient care, and first-hand accounts of the horrors experienced by many of the patients at Montefiore and the New York community. 

This book also shares advocacy skills to help families protect their loved ones from the nightmares associated with any hospitalization whether at Montefiore or elsewhere and the bureaucracies of dealing with the hospital's administration, New York’s Health First and Albert Einstein College of Medicine's bioethics department.

Quality Patient Care is the new social justice imperative.
