God's Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine by Victoria Sweet


San Franciscocff0478#three9;s Laguna Honda clinic is the last almshouse within the u . s . a ., a descendant of the Hôtel-Dieu (Godcff0478#three9;s resort) that cared for the ill within the center a while. Ballet dancers and rock musicians, professors and thieves-"any individual who had fallen, or, incessantly, leapt, onto hard instances" and wanted prolonged hospital therapy-ended up here. So did Victoria sweet, who came for two months and stayed for twenty years.

Laguna Honda, decrease tech but human paced, gave sweet the opportunity to follow a kind of attentive medication that has nearly vanished. progressively, where transformed the best way she understood her work. alongside the modern view of the frame as a machine to be mounted, her strange sufferers evoked an older idea, of the frame as a lawn to be tended. Godcff0478#three9;s inn tells their tale and the story of the sanatorium itself, which, as potency experts, politicians, and architects descended, determined to show it into a modern "health care facility," discovered its own unexpected truths concerning the essence, price, and price of caring for frame and soul.
