-Atul Gawande, New York Times bestselling author of The Checklist Manifesto
"Elizabeth Bailey's book puts a human face on the devastating toll medical errors have on patients and their families, and clearly shows that when we use checklists to improve the quality of care, we save lives. I have seen the power of this important tool; using checklists in a hospital setting, we nearly eliminated bloodstream infections, a preventable disease that kills about as many people every year as breast cancer. Imagine what the simple checklists in this book can do for you."
-Peter J. Pronovost, MD, PhD, FCCM, co-author, with Eric Vohr, of Safe Patients, Smart Hospitals: How One Doctor's Checklist Can Help Us Change Health Care from the Inside Out
"The Patient's Checklist should be in the hands of all families in the event of a hospital stay. The information could save your or a loved one's life."
