K. Patrick Bonovich Depicts the Heartwarming and Humorous Side of Health Care Professionals

January 26th, 2011

Waking Up EmilyWith more than 40 years of experience as a medical physician, Cambridge Who’s Who® member K. Patrick Bonovich, MD has built a lifelong career in patient care. He recently released his first novel, titled “Waking Up Emily: Antics and Inspirations While Patients Sleep,” which provides a fascinating depiction of the trials and tribulations of health care providers.

The novel gives a fictional account, based on the true-life observations, of a large, metropolitan hospital’s anesthesia department. Seen through the eyes of the medical staff, “Waking Up Emily” is an irreverent, heart-warming, humorous — yet often tear-jerking — description of the professional lives of doctors, nurses and paraprofessionals.

Compiled in a series of vignettes, the novel illustrates the daily activities that occur, whereby values clash, to create a professional “tug-of-war” — the end goal being successful outcomes of the lifesaving sort. “Waking Up Emily” provides readers with a glimpse into the tactics employed by those administering the services, and the lives of the people who must operate daily in this environment.

In addition to working on his third book about firemen titled, “Deadly Consequences and Convenient Heroes, Dr. Bonovich is co-authoring another publication titled, “No Weight Loss Gimmicks.” The latter explores the biological and psychological circumstances that contribute to excess weight gain and validates the need for combined long-term medication, diet and behavior modification for effective weight loss.

K. Patrick Bonovich, MD earned a Bachelor of Arts in Zoology from the University of Maryland in 1954 and a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1962. He was instrumental in the establishment, development and administration of Fallston General Hospital, which later became Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. Dr. Bonovich also treats and administers care for inmates at a local prison.

Dr. K. Patrick Bonovich’s novel, “Waking Up Emily: Antics and Inspirations While Patients Sleep,” is available for purchase at Amazon.com.
