CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 28, 2019
A best-selling writer and former Chicago journalist has released the gripping fictionalized account of her deeply personal and harrowing journey through the U.S. medical system after her husband sustained a treatable concussion but ended up in a fatal coma due to doctor error.
In “Medical Manslaughter,” author Gloria J. Yorke presents a roman à clef of her real-life experience losing her husband at the hands of a physician and reveals the realities and horrors of doctor hubris that, when left unchecked, can result in fatal errors. According to a May 2016 Johns Hopkins study published by the British Medical Journal, more than 250,000 deaths are caused each year in the U.S. by medical errors, making it the third leading cause of death in the country behind heart disease and cancer. And other studies estimate that the true number of deaths caused by preventable harm could exceed 400,000 annually.
“I lived this story, and my hope is that I can reach out to readers through it and shine a spotlight on this immensely pressing issue,” Ms. Yorke said. “Ultimately, I want to empower others to trust their intuition when in medical situations where they or their loved ones are vulnerable. Our gut feelings truly are like personal alarm bells that can tell us when danger is present and learning to advocate for oneself or loved ones could be the difference between life or death.”
“This book is beautifully written and so easy to read. I was emotionally engaged,” a reader wrote in a five-star review of “Medical Manslaughter” on Amazon. “Gloria J. Yorke does an excellent job describing a true love story and the shocking truth about a doctor’s negligence that changed lives forever. So worth reading.”
Peppered with photographs of Ms. Yorke and her late husband and comforting tools, such as an easy-to-follow guide to praying The Rosary, “Medical Manslaughter” is a heart-wrenching account of love and loss that also reminds readers that, regardless of one’s beliefs, power and solace can be found in prayer and death does not mean a person is gone.
