Nurse Jeffrey is a miniseries which is a spin-off from the American medical drama series House. The series focuses around the eponymous character Jeffrey Sparkman, a minor character in House.[1] The first and only season features thirteen episodes (or "appisodes"), each about three minutes in length. The episodes were initially only accessible as part of the inHouse app from iTunes, for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. They were later made available on the Fox Broadcasting Company's website and Hulu.

Background[edit]

Nurse Jeffrey, played by Patrick Price, is one of the few male nurses at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital, the primary location of House. He had been featured in the sixth season episode "Ignorance Is Bliss", where he is subjected to taunts by Dr. Gregory House about the fact that he is a male in a profession dominanted by women in the US.

Plot[edit]

The appisodes take the form of a video blog with Jeffrey speaking to the camera about his plan to bring about the demise of Dr. House. In his "Bitch Tape", Jeffrey locates members of staff at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital whom he believes have information about illicit activities in which Dr. House may have been involved. Most of the characters featured in the show are minor characters in House, however Lisa Edelstein appears as Lisa Cuddy in the final episode.[2]
