Cancer, Emotions, and Nurses
The small cancer research unit in a major East Coast university hospital was unique in many ways. It was tucked away in a corner off a main corridor and was screened in by a glass partition that architecturally demonstrated its separateness. It was the only service to which no house staff was assigned. It was funded in a different way from all the other services. And it was the only service in the hospital that had little hope for success in its struggle to ward off death.
