The setting for this short-lived series was the elective surgery floor of Little Innocence Hospital in Nebraska.
Sarcastic Rachel Gunn was the unit's hardworking, dedicated and underpaid head nurse. The target of her sarcasm was young, arrogant Dr. David Dunkle, a talented but selfish surgeon whose condescending attitude towards patients and staff was a constant thorn in her side. In an ironic twist, he needed inexpensive housing following a costly divorce and she needed a tenant for the duplex apartment she owned, Rachel became his landlord.
Other cast members included: Becky, a young, naive and overly enthusiastic new nurse; Zac, a Native American male nurse whose service in Vietnam had prepared him for Rachel's disciplined unit; Dane, the orderly whose aspiration to become a nurse was somewhat in doubt because he was afraid of blood!; Sister Joan, the peppy nun who ministered to both patients and staff alike and Jeannette, the hospital's obnoxious fat dietitian.
