Meredith V. Downes, RN about this book: Not a textbook or technical read, "Nurse Meredith's Top Ten Most Memorable Cases: Harrowing True Tales From A Private Duty Nurse" is a compilation of ten of the most unique and unusual private duty home care cases Nurse Meredith has worked over her 30 year nursing career. Weaving the analogy of what a soldier on the front lines of a war might encounter: bullets, roadblocks, and landmines, Nurse Meredith painfuly points out to the reader the difficulties a nurse encounters when attempting to reach her patients' bedside to provide the best care she has been called to do. The cases are about the journey Nurse Meredith has experienced, not only in the patients' home, but also her experiences traveling to and from the patients' home.
All of the cases take place in New Jersey, United States of America. Once the reader is taken inside the patients' homes, the reader is made to feel like he or she is actually in the home, experiencing the journey as Nurse Meredith has experienced it. At times Nurse Meredith even takes the reader inside her own mind as she reveals her own thoughts and feelings during the journey. Educational, entertaining, and enlightening, the public will also find Nurse Meredith's experiences moving and unforgettable. A glossary of medical terms used in the text is included so everyone can enjoy the stories, even those without a medical Background.
