In Christie Watson's account of her 20-year nursing career, a teenager is waiting for a new heart. Teresa Gallagher is the reader.
Christie Watson's illuminating account of her twenty year nursing career takes us back to her student days when she cared for a teenage boy in need of a new heart and lungs. As he undergoes the lengthy surgery. Christie reflects on the role of the scrub nurse in the operating theatre where tensions can run high, and her own in caring for the patient after the operation is over.
