Stories full of infectious, hospital-grade humour and loads of heart, from Australia's favourite nurse.

Showering in gumboots. Bomb threats. Tables of turds. Welcome to the life of a nurse.


Nurses are our number-one unsung heroes. They're the ones in the trenches mopping up bodily fluids, holding hands, keeping things ticking - and always with a smile on their face. In Off the Charts, Australia's favourite straight-talking nurse and comedian Georgie Carroll lets you peek behind the curtains to see the inner workings of a hospital. Taking us ward to ward, limb to limb, stitch to stitch, Georgie does not hold back as she shows us the human fragility and fierceness she sees every day at work.

This is a laugh-out-loud funny celebration of the big-hearted, no-bullsh*t nurses who, sooner or later, play a huge role in all of our lives.

Praise for Georgie Caroll
'Georgie Carroll is ... infectiously funny' The Age

'With her boisterous bedside manner and tales of behdind-the-scenes hospital hijinks, she's exactly what the doctor ordered.' Adelaide Advertiser
