ABOUT THE BOOK
How to Stay Safe When Entering the Healthcare System: A Physician Walks across the Country to Raise Awareness of the Need to Improve Healthcare Safety is an urgent call to action centering on the author's thirty-five-year mission to raise awareness of the 250,000 lives that are lost each year to preventable medical harm and the harm faced by healthcare professionals in the form of workplace violence, depression, and burnout resulting in suicide rates higher than almost every other industry. The book's narrative-driven timeline follows the author's 2,452-mile walk to thirty-seven Major League Ballparks using his love of baseball as a way to garner media attention for his mission and indulge in the welcome relief of baseball nostalgia.
