Hospital Station - James White

Oh, I'm glad Booklikes is back.

 

I had trouble sleeping last night, so I decided to embrace it and started reading this. I figured I could use a dose of medical mysteries and largely peaceful cross-species cooperation.

 

This is an anthology. The first story takes place during the construction of Sector General and stars O'Mara, who is forced to take care of a Hudlarian infant after its parents are killed. I found his efforts at good alien childcare amusing and endearing, although he really was lucky that even infant Hudlars are pretty durable. I wasn't quite as thrilled about the stuff with the stuttering human character, though.
