Overview

Robert Lesslie's story collection Angels in the ER was called "a chronicle of mankind at its best" by actor Richard Thomas. Readers have agreed—the book has sold over 125,000 copies! Now, in Angels on Call, Dr. Lesslie chronicles more incidents and people from his 25 years in the ER.

This fast-paced, inspiring, and thought-provoking volume reveals many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be "angels" in their own way. Readers will be captivated as they meet...

  • patients who choose life despite difficult circumstances
  • people whose condition of body—or soul—demands split-second action
  • fathers, mothers, and children as they triumph over difficulty
  • individuals who embrace hope—for themselves and others

Woven throughout is a question: Are we "on call"—are we available—to help others? Readers will be inspired to consider this question as they share intimate joys and struggles of people just like them.

    Heartwarming

    What a great book! I know firsthand what it's like to work in the ER and the challenges that present themselves. Patients, families, visitors and staff create the environment and how that environment and those challenges are met determine how the shift will go. Dr. Lesslie shared some of the good and some of the bad but he never lost sight of his goal. It helps to have a good working relationship with your co-workers to share the exhiliration of a job well done or the disappointment when the unexpected problems arise. These heartwarming stories reflect the heart of a physician who relies on his staff to help him do his job and the humility as that job is done.
