Mama Might Be Better Off Dead: The Failure of Health Care in Urba...

<p><i>Mama Might Be Better Off Dead</i> is an unsettling, profound look at the human face of health care. Both disturbing and illuminating, it immerses readers in the lives of four generations of a poor, African-American family beset with the devastating illnesses that are all too common in America's inner-cities.<br> <br> The story takes place in North Lawndale, a neighborhood that lies in the shadows of Chicago's Loop. Although surrounded by some of the city's finest medical facilities, North Lawndale is one of the sickest, most medically underserved communities in the country. Headed by Jackie Banes, who oversees the care of a diabetic grandmother, a husband on kidney dialysis, an ailing father, and three children, the Banes family contends with countless medical crises. From visits to emergency rooms and dialysis units, to trials with home care, to struggles for Medicaid eligibility, Abraham chronicles their access (or lack of access) to medical care.<br> <br> Told sympathetically but without sentimentality, their story reveals an inadequate health care system that is further undermined by the direct and indirect effects of poverty. When people are poor, they become sick easily. When people are sick, their families quickly become poorer.<br> <br> Embedded in the family narrative is a lucid analysis of the gaps, inconsistencies, and inequalities the poor face when they seek health care. This book reveals what health care policies crafted in Washington, D. C. or state capitals look like when they hit the street. It shows how Medicaid and Medicare work and don't work, the Catch-22s of hospital financing in the inner city, the racial politics of organ transplants, the failure of childhood immunization programs, the vexed issues of individual responsibility and institutional paternalism. One observer puts it this way: "Show me the poor woman who finds a way to get everything she's entitled to in the system, and I'll show you a woman who could run General Motors."<br> <br> Abraham deftly weaves these themes together to make a persuasive case for health care reform while unflinchingly presenting the complexities that will make true reform as difficult as it is necessary. <i>Mama Might Be Better Off Dead</i> is a book with the power to change the way health care is understood in America. For those seeking to learn what our current system of health care promises and what it delivers, it offers a place for the debate to begin.<br> <br> <br></p>

Customer Reviews
Surgical knowledge is needed by a medical student to pass exams one day, to save a life the next. Surgery, presents the essential knowledge that a medical student needs to not only achieve academic success, but also to be competent on the wards as a newly-qualified doctor.<br /> <br /> Surgery: an Oxford Core Text offers a fresh alternative to the traditional encyclopaedic style of existing surgery texts by taking a patient-centred approach and using clinical scenarios to anchor surgical knowledge in an applied clinical context. It concentrates on the most common or serious<br />conditions, dividing the content into two parts: clinical conditions, and hospital care. <br /> <br /> Part one examines the clinical conditions that a general and vascular surgeon commonly encounters within their practice. Chapters are grouped by sub-speciality and, where appropriate, anatomy.<br /> <br /> Part two presents all aspects of the hospital care of patients with with surgical conditions with which a newly qualified doctor must be familiar. It addresses pre-operative preparation, anaesthesia, and routine post-operative care and complications.<br /> <br /> Medical students must make the most of their study time; Surgery: an Oxford Core Text incorporates numerous features to make learning as effective as possible.<br /> - Each section begins with a clinical scenario in which a 'typical' case is presented, accompanied by an explanation of the mechanism behind the findings.<br /> - The clinical key-points of each major condition is summarised under each scenario.<br /> - 'Fast facts' summary boxes contain the key elements to remember - an ideal tool for quick and effective revision.<br /> Surgery: an Oxford Core Text reflects current teaching methods and approaches to present the student with a highly readable and memorable core textbook that will continue to be indispensable to the junior doctor. This text will also appeal to specialist nurses and other health professionals that<br />require an accessible yet authoritative account of the common diseases and important issues in surgery.
