About A Never Event
In the small farming community of Fremont, Nebraska, townspeople eagerly welcomed an acclaimed doctor as the first full-time oncologist at their new cancer treatment center — but the fanfare soon turned into a nightmare.
During chemotherapy treatments, 857 patients who were already waging the fights of their lives against cancer, were exposed to the deadly, blood-borne hepatitis C virus. At least ninety-nine of them contracted the lethal illness. The horror was unprecedented—this was the largest healthcare-transmitted outbreak of hepatitis C in American history.
A Never Event — a term used to describe a preventable medical tragedy — is a searing story of recklessness, deception and betrayal. It’s part mystery, part courtroom drama.
A Never Event is a wake-up call to medical and legal communities nationwide.
