I'm looking for a book like Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential
that can explain to me the politics between workers in a hospital setting and how it affects decision making.

I've recently had a lot of dealings with hospitals lately. I find these places very interesting from a sociological/interoffice politics perspective. I'd like to find something that can enlighten me, basically, as to who hates who and why, from the top to the bottom of the building.
The ideal tone would be both compassionate (for the staff in difficult positions) while still maintaining a sharp critical eye. Something a bit less 'pop' than Bourdain would be appreciated as well, this is just the nearest thing I can think of to what I want.
Ooooh, something that explains the role of insurance companies in all of this mess would be great!
