Guerrilla tactics may be the bedside nurse's only resource in the daily struggle to survive and provide optimal patient care. New nurses will find advice about choosing a hospital, and preserving sanity while working in a hospital. Both new and experienced nurses will benefit from the analysis of hospital interactions with doctors, patients, and other nurses. The interactions are presented in a humorous light, with techniques for optimizing future events. Nurses will meet characters such as Dr. Dim, Dr. Olympus, Nurse Flubbie, and Mr. Spicious.
