Have you ever wondered what doctors and nurses are really saying as they zip through the emergency room and onto elevators, throwing cryptic phrases at one another? Or why they do it? Do you guess at the codes broadcast over the loudspeaker, or the words doctors and nurses use when speaking right in front of patients?

In The Secret Language of Doctors, bestselling author Dr. Brian Goldman opens up the book on the clandestine phrases doctors use to describe patients, situations and even colleagues they detest. He tells us what it means for someone to suffer from incarceritis, what doctors mean when they block and turf, what the various codes mean, and why you never want to suffer a horrendoma. Highly accessible, biting, funny and entertaining, The Secret Language of Doctors reveals modern medical culture at its best and all too often at its worst.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Night Shift:

"The Night Shift has many satisfactions. It offers a great deal to both the lay public and those inside the health professions who continue to benefit from Goldman''s honesty and curiosity. The highest compliment I can pay it is to say it read like a progress note written by an experienced colleague, a person hoping for the best and working to that end." - The Globe and Mail
