202 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). "The ward settles down for a quiet night. A serene, starched nurse soothes the brow of a grateful patient as the lamplight flickers. Bleep! Cardiac arrest! The crash team leaps into action, skidding along the corridors, etiquette abandoned in the vital race against time. It is in these frantic seconds that a sister, weighing her responsibilities and priorities, must make efficient, professional decisions - decisions which could mean the difference between life and death. In her autobiography, Joan Ash contrasts her wartime nursing experiences in India with the National Health Service as she found it on her return in 1973. She shows us the day-to-day frustrations and joys of nursing, the individuals that people the wards, and the resilient dedication of these latter-day Florence Nightingales." Book slightly cocked. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds.
