Readers of Stories from the tenth-Floor Clinic: A Nurse Practitioner Remembers will get a peek into the early 1980s, before gerontology was an established specialty in medicine and social services. An eye-opening read, especially for those of us not in the medical profession.
The author did the best she could as a nurse practitioner at the time, and sometimes her best fell short, with limited time and resources at her disposal. It is difficult to imagine a nurse running a senior clinic on her own, but Crane did an excellent job and seemed to be her own worst critic. I found her stories interesting and insighful. That said, it was somewhat disconcerting when each chapter ended with a sentence that promised a suspense that was not warranted for the topic. Still, a good read, and I imagine anyone in the nursing profession would find it fascinating.
