CONFESSIONS OF A BURNED-OUT ER NURSE
by amy smith

According to author and ER nurse, Amy Smith—one minute you feel like you’re on the front lines in a war zone and the next you’re treating ingrown toenails and paper cuts.

In Confessions of a Burned-Out ER Nurse, Smith chronicles her fourteen-year career with candid, sometimes hilarious, sometimes hard to believe stories of the twelve-hour shifts she has survived as an ER nurse.

If you look up the word emergency in the dictionary, the definition reads: an unforeseen event or condition requiring prompt action. As for emergency room, the definition is a hospital room for receiving and treating persons needing immediate care. But, writes Smith, somewhere along the line, the purest meaning of these terms has been defiled, and the gap between what an emergency room should be and what society thinks it is, has widened dramatically. My coworker, Roberta once said that we should rename it the inconvenience room.

With our health care system being debated daily, Smith gives readers an inside look at the politics of hospital administration and the disconnect between those at the top and those in the trenches. Colleges and universities, she writes, should offer courses on corporate doublespeak so that student nurses will be better prepared for the way it is used to hide the cuts that result in dangerously understaffed ERs.
