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.
