After reading the “In the Operating Room” chapter of The Forbidden Zone, I was surprised, though I shouldn’t have been, of the absolute madhouse of a working environment for the doctors and nurses. Seeing then have three different patients, with a variety of illnesses, and three sets of doctors in the same room talking over each other was chaotic and disconcerting. I am surprised that they were able to get their jobs done even a bit correctly when there are so many patients that need to be seen and attended to at one time.
What did you all think? Did you expect the hospital to be so crowded and unmanageable?
