Impaired Nurse details the ease with which a nurse can divert dangerous narcotic medicines for personal use. It is at once a How-To and a staunch warning. This story is told as a memoir of a drug-addicted nurse, and the decisions Thom makes always prove extreme and final. An addict in nurse's clothing can only last so long at the hospital. Impaired nurses leave a heavy trail for the investigator. It is possible to save one's nursing license by entering the Voluntary Recovery Program, but Thom finds their demands unrealistic. He takes matters into his own hands.

Impaired Nurse is one of those novels that you both are glad you read and yet wish like mad you had not read. It is a artfully written account of a downward spiral that left me angry at and yet feeling for the character. And, of course, looking twice at every nurse in my general area every time I visit the doctor's office or the local ER. Definitely worth the read. 5 stars.
Great read! Book was very moving and gives readers a realistic inside look at addiction.
