ON THE FRONT LINES
A young victim of a hit and run is brought to the ER...A college student thinks she may have been raped....A homeless man is covered with chemical burns but won't say how he got them... Across the country, in moments of crisis, nurses are often the first witnesses to acts of trauma. And when the human body itself is a crime scene, what a nurse does--from asking the right questions to preserving the key evidence--can make all the difference in the world.

IN THE HEART OF THE ACTION
Now, a new kind of nurse is being deployed to the front lines. Detective, advocate, caregiver: specially trained forensic nurses play an increasingly critical role in cases of violence, negligence and mayhem--and giving justice a fighting chance.

AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME...
This book chronicles dozens of riveting cases, from the bizarre to the commonplace. Spotlighting pioneering personalities in forensic nursing today, this book shows how forensic nurses do their job, why they often become key witnesses in trials, and how these unsung heroes help police solve society's most baffling crimes.
