9780060595029: Emergency Doctor

Hundreds of people slam through its doors every day: gun-shot cops, battered kids, drug addicts, and suicides, destitute drunks, homeless people, AIDS sufferers, and accident victims. It's a bizarre parade of humanity looking for help -- in the one place they know they can find it.

Welcome to the frontline trenches of medicine: the emergency room of the legendary Bellevue Hospital. Here, an army of doctors and nurses faces the onslaught of young and old, rich and ragged, sick and dying. All day, all night. All year.This is their story -- an around-the-clock drama of the unexpected: a crane falling on a hapless pedestrian; a crazed executive wearing two-thirds of a three-piece suit; a pretty paralegal aide struggling with an on-the-job cocaine overdose; a trauma victim of an East River helicopter crash clinging to life. It's terrifying, tragic, triumphant ... and true.

From the Inside Flap:

"GRIPPING."

--Booklist
A crane falls on a hapless mother of two, almost crushing her to death . . . A trauma victim of a helicopter crash desperately clings to life . . . A paralegal aide suffers a violent seizure from a cocaine overdose and gasps for breath . . . Welcome to the ER at Bellevue Hospital, the frontline trenches of medicine where doctors fight around-the-clock to save lives at a frenetic pace of quick decisions and real life-and-death drama.
Some three hundred people slam through these hospital doors every day. Gunshot cops, battered kids, drug addicts, and suicides. Destitute drunks, bag ladies, AIDS sufferers, and accident victims. It's a bizarre parade of humanity looking for help in the one place they know they can find it: the ER.
"Gut-wrenching, heartwarming, and instructive about the exigencies of this branch of medicine as practiced at this legendary institution."

--Publishers Weekly
