Crunchyroll's synopsis: 

“Masayoshi Tsuruda, known as Jumbo, returns to a small port city due to a loan given to the late director of the Baba Clinic. Soon, Masayoshi Tsuruda becomes the director at Baba Clinic.  

 

Meanwhile, Nurse Asuka works at the clinic. She is the only child of the ex-director, and while she is extremely inexperienced at her job, Asuka is passionate and tender.  Personality conflicts ensue as Doctor Masayoshi Tsuruda and Nurse Asuka have continual arguments about protocol, while struggling to save patients…”
