Description
Dorin (medical director, SHARP Grossmont Plaza Surgery Center) "will spare nothing in bringing to the forefront very real and grave dangers the United States--and Western, developed countries in general--face at the hands of Islamofascist terrorists (or killers of any other ilk, domestic or foreign)" bent on attacking the health care system. He argues that there are numerous basic security weaknesses inherent in American medicine and calls for the reengineering of the way health care facilities operate to secure potentially lethal materials (drugs) and minimize the possibility of sabotage and other forms of attack. He also critically examines the activities of the regulatory agencies responsible for overseeing medical safety concerns. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
