Lois Gerberabout this book: Writing the fifteen short stories for my e-book, The Human Side of Nursing, made me aware of the many insights about life that I learned from my patients as their home health care nurse. Because patients and their caregivers welcomed me into their homes and shared their life stories, I absorbed information about unfamiliar cultures, different family values, and new ways to solve problems. I benefitted from them as much as they benefitted from me.
The vignettes, most previously published in nursing journals, describe these inspiring people I'll always remember. Three are award winners. Readers will meet Father Dan, a Catholic priest who questions his faith after being shot by a drug addict he is trying to help and Harry Golden, disabled by a stroke, whose rehabilitation is challenged by memories of family members lost in the Holocaust. The book will appeal to a general audience but may be of particular interest to nurses, other health care professionals, volunteers, and the patients and family members who care for them.
A reviewer quoted, "Lois'stories of caring for her patients expertly depicts not only how the patient or family member is touched by her interventions but also how the nurse herself is affected."
