A “must read” in today’s healthcare climate
The harsh reality we are facing in the US is that the quality of healthcare, and patient safety are on the decline. In Surviving your hospital stay, Dr. Siemers empowers patients and family members to become advocates and full partners in their health and wellness. In her thorough and informative book, Dr. Siemers educates the reader on all aspects (good and other) of the healthcare system and provides tips and strategies to navigate your stay in (and out) of the hospital. I found the “Key take aways” at end of each chapter helpful to summarize and reference content. Dr. Siemers sets the expectation, and reminds us that patients deserve quality care without harm. Highly highly highly recommend this informative book written by the expert in patient safety, Dr. Siemers!

Easy read for a heavy subject
This book has really opened my eyes to listening to my gut and not always trusting “the experts”. They are human and make mistakes-but this book has encouraged and educated me to speak up and question everything. I feel equipped to know what to look for even with a simple head to toe assessment. I encourage you all to get a great education with this book without feeling overwhelmed and saturated with hospital jargon. I’m recommending this to everyone I care about!

This book is a MUST read for all of us regarding illness, treatments, hospital stays and more.
I was so impressed with the comprehensive and easy to read information that I ordered 2 more as gifts. I work in the senior industry and this information is too valuable not to share. Everyone needs to know how to monitor and protect loved ones of all ages while in the hospital. It even gives examples of ways to protect ourselves outside of the hospital setting regarding our health and safety. Eye opening and timely!!

Knowledge is Power
Dr. Siemers, you have captured the harmful, glaring incidents involving patient care with evidential solid backing. As such, nurse educators are responsible for ensuring novice nurses have the tools necessary to ensure patients receive safe care. This book should be required reading in nursing schools—well done!

A must read for everyone!
This book is well written and important for all to read. My uncle is undergoing a major surgery soon and I want to be involved in his Healthcare. We all expect Healthcare professionals to give the best possible care at all times but in my experience, sometimes crucial signs are missed. After reading this book, I feel equipped with some knowledge to see the early signs of deterioration.

As awesome as it would be to be able to put 100% of your trust in the medical professionals, that's not reality. Accidents happen and mistakes are made. It's so important to be able to advocate for yourself/loved ones!

Nursing Errors account for a large number of patient harm events, many of which end in the patient’s death. Evidence shows the root cause of nursing errors occur when the central aspects of nursing practice do not happen, resulting in “Nursing Practice Breakdown”.

Our expertise lies in teaching/training nursing staff the concepts proven to decrease nursing errors contributing the phenomenon of “Failure to Rescue”. Failure to Rescue is defined as the failure to prevent the death of a patient by failing to recognize, act, or communicate when a patient displays signs of physiological deterioration.

We provide strategies and educational modules to address Nurisng Practice Breakdown leading to medical errors and preventable patient deaths. Let us help you educate your nursing staff in the vigilance and surveillance skills necessary to save patient lives!
