Written under the pretense that stories can be powerful medicine, this collection captures both the medical and emotional aspects of the hospital bed through tales from those who have been there and offers powerful messages about the essential ingredients of “good” health care: respect, compassion, collaboration, open and honest communication, family involvement, and flexibility and responsiveness to individuals and their needs.
