Publisher's Summary

Standing in the trauma room of an emergency department is like standing at ground zero of a nuclear reaction, only it's not radiation that is released - but stories. Stories that are told and retold, sometimes just until the end of the shift, but sometimes for decades.

A survivor of domestic violence makes it to the hospital but cannot trust anyone. An anonymous man passes away after being taken to the emergency room, and no one can identify him. The spouse of a cancer patient must decide whether to force her to undergo chemotherapy or to let her pass away in peace.

These stories - and all the rest in People of the ER - grapple with what it means to be human in the face of trauma and death.

Written by the author of Trauma Room Two, People of the ER delves deeper into the lives of the patients and staff that work in a small, rural emergency room.

Narrators need to know their topic

There are few things more distracting than listening to a book with a medical topic and then be jarred by a glaring mispronunciation of a medical term. It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard! Please narrators, know your topic and ASK if you’re unsure about a pronunciation. There are probably hundreds of doctors out there like me who would be delighted to critique and advise. And producers out there—you shouldn’t release an audiobook without being certain there are major errors like this in the completed production.

Pioniot.

hard to believe that this was written by a physician. The stories are Unforgettable, the writing is articulate and almost poetic. it was a great read and I highly recommend it. I trust the author will write more.

Excellent Book

Loved every second of Dr. Green's books. Waiting for his next book to be published.
