In this book, the editors and authors supply an important guide that
many of us wish we had had during our clinical training years: an operator's
manual for the acute-care hospital. While scores of resources exist for clinical
problems, there is a paucity of information assembled in one place in a workable
format on the components of the hospital that collectively make up the care
environment. The book is intended to be used by "hospital neophytes" such
as physicians- and nurses-in-training, but more experienced clinicians might
also find it a useful reference.
