Description

The Hospital: The View From Bellevue. Bellevue: Three Centuries of Medicine and Mayhem at America's Most Storied Hospital.

The Hospital: The View From Bellevue. The Hospital: The View From Bellevue.

I was in stitches reading this book. Being a registered nurse, I can just imagine the situations. As Bellevue is a very busy hospital, understaffed, overworked medical staff run into the craziest scenarios. But the patients as well.

So begins The View f. Between 1959 and 1965, Dr. Larry Karp served as medical student, intern, and resident physician at Bellevue. During these six years, he came to know and understand the people who wended their way through the dingy hallways and roach-infested subterranean passages, and inhabited the sparsely furnished wards of the fabulous hospital whose origins date back to 1811.

It's been about a year since I last read this book. I was told about it by my mother, who obtained it when it was initially printed. The book is written by an intern (If I remember correctly), who spent some time in the infamous hospital to learn the ropes first-hand. What he describes are a couple of homosexual "incidents" (use your head, you can figure some out for yourself!), some nutties that stop by, etc.

When the new Bellevue Hospital, twelve years in the building, finally opened a few years ago, alumni throughout America sighed in relief and offered the opinion that life at The Vue would henceforth be very different. It didn’t matter that the physical structure was new, because the hospital would continue to be inhabited by the very same cast of characters who had always caused Bellevue to be a singularity, and who always will. An Overview of The Vue.

Since patients at Bellevue generally did run a bit to the bizarre, the foreign objects encountered in Bellevue orifices also were about as peculiar as one might imagine. Bellevue physicians were called upon to remove a fascinating assortment of material that had been lost in the different body openings. Every day we removed Q-tips from ears, wadded paper from nostrils, and a truly amazing variety of objects from rectums. Many of these were started on their travels up the wrong end of the intestinal tract as silly or drunken jokes. Others came to rest up there as the result of accidents during.

This book is funny, and so full of extrordinary stories of Dr. Karp's internship at this very unusual hospital. Being in the medical profession myself, the content is appreciated even more! It is also interesting to read this book and now see how this profession has evolved into what it has become! I have read this book many times, and every time I read it I love it more. It has been a long time since I had been able to read the book as it went missing when I lent it to some one else. I had trouble finding it again, and am delighted to be able to have it and read it again and again!

Thankful i could get my hands on this book again and have it for my library. Interesting reading plus a little history of the hospital itself makes it a good book to have.

I read this book back in 1980 when I was stationed At Ramstein AB in Germany. I have looked for this book since that time but could never get it to come up. I had forgotten the "The Hospital" part - anyway it is a great book but, unfortunately, I just can't see spending $50.00 for it.

Pick it up before it's gone forever!
