Abstract:
A play for 2 actors.; This play was commissioned by the North East Strategic Health Authority for a Health Care Association Infection conference in July 2009. The subject of the play is acquired infection. Operating Theatre was specifically asked to produce a piece of drama which would deal with the patient's perspective on contracting an infection in hospital. In The Human Touch a male patient who came in for a simple operation is found to have MRSA. He feels lonely and isolated, as if somehow he is being blamed for the situation, and his feelings are not helped by his wife who cannot restrain her delight at the thought of suing the hospital for a large sum of money. Luckily, he is able to talk over these feelings with Florence Nightingale, famous above all things for her battle against infection in the Crimea! Funny, poignant and thought-provoking, the play was enthusiastically received by conference delegates many of whom voted it not only highly entertaining but the most useful session of the day.
