Each year, an estimated 100,000 people die from preventable medical errors. In PodLit #8, actress Kathryn Spitz reads Linda Peeno's essay, "Burden of Oath," which describes her work to preserve the humanity of patients caught in a corporatized healthcare system. In her role as lawyer and physcian, she treats the healthcare system itself.
"Burden of Oath" was originally published in Creative Nonfiction issue 21, Rage and Reconciliation: Inspiring a Healthcare Revolution. Rage and Reconciliation is now available in paperback from Southern Methodist University Press.
