Inhaltsangabe: In the small, farming community of Fremont, Nebraska, townspeople eagerly welcomed an acclaimed doctor as the first full-time oncologist at the new, local cancer treatment center. But the fanfare soon turned into a nightmare. During chemotherapy treatments, 857 patients who were already waging the fights of their lives against cancer were inexplicably exposed to the deadly, blood-borne hepatitis C virus. At least ninety-nine of them contracted the lethal illness. The horror was unprecedented as this was the largest healthcare-transmitted outbreak of hepatitis C in American history, and remains so to this date. A Never Event - a term used to describe a preventable medical tragedy - is a searing account of the health challenges these patients encountered and their quest for justice, as well as the painstaking investigation to uncover the source of the outbreak. It s a story of recklessness, deception and betrayal by the person these patients should have been able to trust the most: their physician, a man who, when the outbreak was discovered, fled the US for his native country in the Middle East. Written by a survivor of the tragedy and an attorney who represented many of the victims, A Never Event is a wake-up call to medical and legal communities nationwide.
Über den Autor: Evelyn McKnight, a two-time survivor of breast cancer, lives with the chronic hepatitis C that she contracted during the Nebraska outbreak. Using the money from her settlement against the oncology clinic, she founded the patient advocacy foundation HONOReform, which has been recognized by CBS, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, American Morning, USA Today, The Associated Press and Newsday. Evelyn is a renown patient safety advocate and frequently speaks at healthcare conferences throughout the country. Travis Bennington is a practicing civil trial attorney who successfully represented nineteen victims of the Nebraska hepatitis C tragedy. Mr. Bennington is also a co-founder of HONOReform.
