An intensive care unit nurse in a small-town hospital on the Eastern Shore
suspected that a patient had necrotizing fasciitis, the so-called "flesh-eating" disease.
The condition is rare. Even experienced intensive-care doctors seldom see
it, and, since it was nighttime, no such physician was in the ICU. Pinning
down the diagnosis was critical — and in this case Berlin's
Atlantic General Hospital had backup.
