9781449598624: Confessions of a Nurse Aide

Sounds stranger than fiction, but B. A. London, a former certified nurse aide wrote from firsthand experience. Armed with deft scatological humor and scathing sarcasm, London's observations of humanity epitomizes the importance of health care as well as a deep compassion for his patients. London's unapologetic revelation cushions the shocking and starkly life in a nursing home. This book depicts the often-painful results of severe ailment and aging while conveying an important and powerful underlying message about the future of long-term health care in a country soon to be faced with the aging of the massive Baby Boomer generation. His provocative disclosures give a vivid account of what goes on in the process of caring for the elderly in nursing homes, but London went agog with delivery, invoking satire as he captures his experiences in a treatise that emits so much suspense, and juxtaposes fantasy with reality. Intriguingly, this book depicts the triviality of age and infirmity in life and effectively conveys other inherent implications of livelihood... all in a stirring tongue-in-cheek manner.
