God's Hotel - Victoria Sweet
It is the patients stories that shine and help to push the story foreward. There is lots of pressure from administrators and accountants for the hospital to reduce admissions, discharge patients and cut staff costs. Like all health care there are a lot of implications with cuts, and I think the author does a good job of talking about the consequences of putting these types of patients back home. How that then they bounce back to the hospital more often increasing their medical costs, and how there is little community support to help these patients when they have needs 24/7.
This is the type of book that I could have carried on reading and just wanted more and more of her stories. 4/5
