Moving and oftentimes hilarious anecdotes from two orderlies in Barcelona detail the actual experiences of working in a hospital, from attending to patients and their families and interacting with fellow employees to transporting lab samples and moving dead bodies. The little-known and even-less-recognized job of an orderly is brought to light as Esteve and Oscar, coworkers who share a proclivity for unconventional haircuts and a love of beer, share stories about a young woman with a questionable case of appendicitis, an unfortunate motorcyclist who forgot to wear his helmet, and a groom in fear of losing his hearing from the traditional throwing of rice at his wedding ceremony. The unique perspective uncovers the most surprising aspects of a hospital, where high emotional voltage--or as the beer connoisseurs refer to it, "double malt"--flows, and at the same time tells the story of a great friendship. "Anecdotas conmovedoras y a menudo hilarantes de dos asistentes de hospital en Barcelona detallan las experiencias veridicas sobre trabajar en un hospital, desde atender a los pacientes y a sus familias y relacionarse con companeros de trabajo hasta transportar muestras de laboratorio y trasladar cadaveres. El empleo poco conocido y aun menos reconocido del asistente de hospital sale a la luz cuando Esteve y Oscar, colegas que llevan el pelo largo y sienten el mismo amor por la cerveza, comparten relatos sobre una joven con una apendicitis sospechosa, un desafortunado motociclista que olvido ponerse el casco y un novio que teme perder el oido por la tradicion de tirar arroz despues de la boda. La perspectiva unica descubre los aspectos mas sorprendentes de un hospital, en cuyo interior fluye un alto voltaje emocional--o "doble malta," en terminos de los conocedores de la cerveza--y a la vez cuenta la historia de una gran amistad."show more
