Publisher's Summary

From the people who brought you the bestselling Confessions of a GP. From stampeding nudes to inebriated teenagers, young nurse Michael Alexander never really knew what he was getting himself into. But now, sixteen years since he was first launched into his nursing career – as the only man in a gynaecology ward – he’s pretty much dealt with everything: Body parts that come off in his hands; Teenagers with phantom pregnancies; Doctors unable to tell the difference between their left and right; Violent drunks; Singing relatives; Sexism… and a whole lot of nudity. From the team that brought you the bestselling ‘Confessions of a GP’, comes a touching, shocking and frequently hilarious account of one man’s life in nursing.

Humorous and interesting

I've listened to this twice and enjoyed it. The story is well told and seems to be true to form. I used to be a nurse myself and although I'm not from the U.K., so not as familiar with their health care system, I think patient care is basically the same. The author chose mostly humorous stories but also some sad ones too. It gives a good cross section of what the daily nurse's life is. Not the same old thing every day, but a wide variety of patients and situations to deal with.
Highly recommended.
