Description
From its gripping first page to its uplifting last, Nurses captures all the crisis, chaos, and craziness at the front lines of a big-city hospital and women's clinic. Funny, heart-wrenching, and always entertaining, Nurses opens the door to the lives of dedicated healers whose stories instantly become as real as our own. Marty Lamb is a smart, savvy nurse practitioner who is director of New York's first and only nurse-run inner-city clinic, the Community Care Clinics of All Souls Women's Hospital. Heading a staff of tough, tenacious nurses, she wages the daily fight to keep the clinic running--battling administrators, executive committees, and doctors who'd rather see nurses be silent, submissive, and sexually available. And all the while Marty must help make the hard medical choices--about high-risk pregnancies, drug addicts with AIDs, and premature babies--that come with serving a poor community. As the worse heat wave in years hits Manhattan, things are reaching the boiling point at CCC. Rumors that the hospital is being sold fuels tension as nurses pull double shifts, doctors demand less time for more money, and an inspection by the board of hospital accreditors threatens to close down the clinic. But Marty's problems are just beginning: someone is tampering with their lab tests, her best nurse has developed an addiction to painkillers, and vicious poison pen letters--from someone who seems to know everyone's deepest, darkest secrets--has the staff walking a razor's edge. At the same time, Marty's private life seems to be on a high-speed collision course with disaster. Her schizophrenic husband, Owen, is suddenly released after years of hospitalization and shows up on her doorstep. . .just as she's renewing a relationship with Dr. Paul Giordano, the new attending physician at CCC, who loved and left her long ago for mysterious reasons of his own. Immediate, compelling, provocative, Nurses sweeps us into the dramatic lives of care givers, women you will laugh with, cry for and remember forever.
