Sector General novels are almost always nice enjoyable reads. White created a kind universe in these books, with medical mysteries and alien perspectives to pull you into the plot. This one introduces Nurse Trainee Cha Thrat who is a Warrior/Surgeon on her home planet. Her ethics get her into all kinds of interesting trouble in this novel as she tries on various roles in the Sector General hospital and is tossed out time and time again after managing to do some good in a highly disagreeable manner for the ethical staff of Sector General. "Code Blue: Emergency!" is collected with "The Genocidal Healer" into the Sector General omnibus called "General Practice". Like episodes of House M.D., you will enjoy these books immensely then forget most of the finer details of the medical mysteries as time goes by, so they are good for a reread.
To the doctors and nurses of Sector General Hospital, Cha Thrat was just another trainee, but for Cha Thrat, life at Sector General was most unnerving experience. Because her world had only recently been discovered by the Galactic Federation, she had never experienced the multiplicity of life-forms that populated Sector General - and no one knew what to expect of her.
Cha Thrat was a skilled healer, diligent, careful, and - according to her world's strict medical ethics - VERY responsible. Chief Psychologist O'Mara tried to help her adjust to her new life, but time after time, her best intentions caused only catastrophe. And even after she had been barred from nearly every ward in Sector General, O'Mara was still surprised by just how much havoc one nurse-trainee could cause...
