Patient Care: Death and Life in the Emergency Room

4 stars Nonfiction

I’m glad that I listened to an audio of this novel, as some of the medical terms and jargon that was used, I know that I would’ve had a hard time pronouncing had I read the novel.  I enjoyed listening to this novel as Dr. Seward recalls his medical practice and he shares stories about working in the ER. 

Seward describes some of his most interesting cases that he has had the opportunity to experience in his lifetime.  These cases are not always his most successful cases but they’re ones that meant something to him.  The novel teaches, the novel shows you what it is like to be on the other side of the table, and the novel shows you the emotions, that are not only one-sided.  Great book and a short one also.
