One would presume that America’s presidents have always received the finest medical care available, but that is simply not the case.Incompetence, Malpractice, and Cover up reveals gross incompetence, botched care, and cover-ups surrounding the diagnoses and medical care administered to a dozen of our leaders – from George Washington to Grover Cleveland to Ronald Reagan.

A retired General Washington developed an inflammation in his voice box that severely limited air flow to his lungs. Over nine hours, he was subjected to multiple blood lettings, resulting in the loss of half of his total blood volume. A young doctor proposed performing a tracheotomy, which would have provided an unobstructed airway, but was overruled by senior physicians. Washington died of asphyxiation and shock due to blood loss.

Woodrow Wilson was a victim of progressive hardening of the arteries. When the US Senate rejected his proposal for the League of Nations, he embarked on a nationwide trip to influence public opinion. En route, he showed signs of a major stroke, which were ignored by medical staff until he had a major stroke that proved fatal.

Warren G. Harding’s doctor did not recognize his patient’s signs of progressive heart failure, instead believing his stomach pains to be a result of food poisoning from eating spoiled crab meat.

The leaders of the free world put their faith in medical professionals who didn’t always provide the life saving care that was expected. Written by a former medical doctor,Incompetence, Malpractice, and Cover up reveals that questionable prescriptions and inept care, at the very least, resulted in added discomfort, and, at the worst: death.
