From Harm and Injustice The Medical Execution of Joseph Zima
Joseph Zima, a few years after retirement, began experiencing some chest pain. Diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and assured by his surgeon that surgery was only a low risk, he underwent surgery. During the surgery Mr. Zima suffered a stroke. This stroke was the first in a series of medical missteps and malpractices that would include eight hospitals, nine other strokes, and his heart stopping for fifteen minutes. His treatment ultimately resulted in his death. It was a death sentence that spanned one hundred ninety days of pain and suffering; not only for Joseph Zima, but for his family.
– Do medical professionals play a part in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare?
– Are all medical professionals victims of frivolous lawsuits?
– How do I avoid such suffering?
From Harm and Injustice addresses these questions as it unfolds the medical care and death of Joseph Zima.
Mark M. Zima is the second of three sons of Joseph Zima. He was at his father’s bedside from morning to night every day of his hospitalization. He is the author of Mother Teresa: The Case for The Cause. After the publication of that book, he took up the pen to write this most personal and painful work, knowing that the subject matter is hotly debated and central in the lives of many Americans. He is a former Catholic monk, cowboy, and organic farmer. He lives in the southeastern Pennsylvania region.
