Reading Rock Festival: a nursing perspective
Journal/Book: Accid Emerg Nurs. 1996; 4: 40-2.
Abstract: Working in the Accident and Emergency (A & E) department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, is in itself fairly unremarkable - the unit functions in much the same way as any other Trust Hospital department. It does, however, provide a rather unique opportunity - the option to participate in the running of an on-site medical facility, at the internationally acclaimed Reading Rock Festival. This article explores the impact of the festival on the local A & E department, and highlights the experience of a staff nurse working at the Festival site.
