Quote from book review on "Are Hospitals Safe?" published in NTUC Lifestyle November 2009:
- Ms Tan Shee Lah
"I highly recommend this book because it is best to know what to expect if stricken with a serious illness. It is not something we want to think about when we are well, but sickness is a reality we should be prepared for. The author shares what she has learnt the hard way - flaws in the medical system and the frustration of dealing with all too-human medical professionals. From dangerous bugs waiting to pounce on the already sick to filtering out the 'wrong' doctors, Soh Hong provides insight that can be a comforting anchor-hold to those who feel helpless in the alien environment of hospitals."
