Product Overview

"Everything in this book happened. These are real nurses and real patients. . . ."
And the true stories that nurse Carolyn Fink gathers here are the real stuff of life, as lived by some unforgettable human beings and their nurses.
The con artist with the bogus bad back . . . The beautiful eighteen-year-old paralyzed by a hit-and-run driver . . . The shy Navajo grandmother who chose to sleep on the floor rather than in a hospital bed . . . The big shot who installed a fax machine next to his heart monitor . . . These and many others play their parts in this wonderful book and teach us much about ways of living and dying, the bitter ironies of fate, and the twin miracles of love and healing.
