Medical Errors and Medical Narcissism

Banja J
Sudbury, Massachusetts: Jones and Bartlett Publishers; 2005

This groundbreaking book examines common psychological reactions of health care professionals to the commission of a serious harm-causing error and the variety of obstacles that can compromise ethically sound, truthful disclosure and how error disclosure to patients and families is often compromised by the health professional’s need to preserve his or her self-esteem at the cost of honoring the patient’s right to the unvarnished truth about what has happened.
