As reported in the Baltimore Sun http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bal-king1214,0,7208413.story
Josie King died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2001. Her mother investigated her daughter's wrongful death and learned it came about because of a lack of communication between hospital personnel.
She channeled her grief into a book, "Josie's Story" due to come out tomorrow.
At Clark and Steinhorn we have represented numerous families in wrongful death malpractice cases in both Maryland and the District of Columbia and invariably lack of proper communication was the culprit.
Perhaps this book will focus the attention of the healthcare establishment on effective communication.
