From Library Journal:

Winslade and Ross contend that even the most well informed patient or family member becomes confused and overwhelmed in a health crisis situation. They feel that if patients understand how the health care system works and if the patients know clearly what they want for themselves then their stay in the hospital should go more smoothly. The book looks at both of the above stated areas and uses case histories as examples. This book is more clearly written and much less caustic than Charles B. Inlander's Take This Book to the Hospital with You ( LJ 7/85), but it is not as strong a work in the area of medical ethics one might wish. Linda Morgan Davis, OCLC, Dublin, Ohio
