What is it like to be bound within America's health-care system? This volume looks at health and disease from many viewpoints: the patient, the nurse, the doctor, the loved one observing medical care in Intensive Care or the Emergency Room. A quadriplegic patient, the mother of a sick infant, and the mother of a brain-injured boy are some of the viewpoints painted by vivid imagery here. Constance Studer draws upon her twenty years' experience as a registered nurse in this book.
