When a doctor and a filmmaker reconnect…

Just who is healing whom?

Two years ago, Dr. Wyatt Reid shared an unforgettable goodbye kiss with Mia Fiore. Now a scuba diving accident brings the daredevil documentary filmmaker into his San Francisco ER. Could this be their shot at a real relationship? But Wyatt, haunted by family tragedy, saves lives, and Mia risks hers every day. Can they find the way to a future on both their terms?

Beyond the Hospital

In my May release, The Doctor’s Recovery, my hero, Wyatt Reid, is an ER physician. For the past five years, Wyatt has been doing medical-aide work in the Africa. During my research for The Doctor’s Recovery, I discovered several unique jobs for physicians and medical professionals that were outside of the hospital and clinic environment.

* The inspiration for Wyatt’s medical aide work came from my research on the international medical humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders. Doctors Without Borders provides medical care to people in need in over 60 countries around the world. I was inspired reading the field blogs from the staff and in awe of these incredible people and what they do around the world. For more information on how you can help, please visit their website: doctorswithourborders.org

* Air Ambulance – this particular job came to my attention while we were stuck on the I-95 during a recent return trip from Disney World. All four lanes of traffic were stopped on either side of the highway due to a multi-car accident. We’d been stopped for about twenty minutes when my daughter leaned between the seats and asked: “Is that helicopter landing on the freeway?” Sure enough, the helicopter was an Air Ambulance that landed in the middle of the highway near the accident sight. We were close enough to watch one victim secured to a gurney and placed inside the helicopter. After a prayer for the injured, I had my daughter research Aeromedical evacuation on her phone and fill me in on the job requirements. Physicians, RNs and paramedics are part of the Air Ambulance staff that treats critically injured people at accidents and transports them to nearby hospitals. If you don’t mind flying and have the training, this would be an intense, although I imagine also a very rewarding job.

* For those with an RN degree, the traveling nurse position has always interested me. My mother is a retired RN. When I was younger, we lived in Hawaii and she worked in a Women’s and Children’s hospital in Honolulu. We were fortunate to have one of the traveling nurses live with us several times over the years. I always liked hearing about the places this particular nurse had been and where she was headed to next. She’d seen a lot of the country with her job. If you like to travel and have a nursing degree, this is an alternative employment option. Traveling nurses. usually work for 13-26 weeks in one place before moving on. Travel expenses and living arrangements are included in the job.

As I don’t have a medical degree, unless Google searches on medical conditions count, I’ll keep writing characters who live in the medical world. And I’ll thank the real-life doctors, nurses and medical professionals that give their time, energy and expertise every day to patients and their families. We are blessed and fortunate to have such incredible medical care.
Happy Reading!
