The book “Assumptions Can Mislead” (published by Trafford Publishing) talks about assumptions and misunderstandings in health care and in our everyday lives that lead to misunderstandings, mistakes and tragic outcomes. Author M.C. DYE shares true stories to show how making incorrect assumptions can be avoided by health care professionals and the general public.

Because of its engaging topic and content, the book has already received multiple recognitions including: The Gold Seal of Literary Excellence from Trafford, The Eric Hoffer Award Excellence in Independent Publishing and a number of fine reviews from The US Review of Books and Kirkus Review.

“A stunning variety of true stories from health care and our daily lives show how we may believe and act on incorrect assumptions. It is striking how often premature closure from our beliefs and expectations can lead to misunderstandings, mistakes and tragic outcomes including deaths. This book is about us. We can learn to recognize our assumptions and get the story right,” Dye describes her book.

An excerpt from the book:
It’s difficult to recognize assumptions when assumptions are what we take for granted and accept as fact. But we need to try to recognize them if we want to be sure to get the story right.
