Expanded and completely updated for its Ninth Edition, this full-color classic reference is the one source every nurse needs for essential information on patient care. In an easy-to-read outline format, this clinically focused guide covers all disorders and patient problems in medical-surgical, maternal-neonatal, pediatric, and psychiatric nursing, and includes over 150 step-by-step procedures.
Each chapter incorporates official guidelines that shape clinical practice, including those from the National Institutes of Health, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, American Nurses Association, Joint Commission, AWHONN, and others. Highlights of this Ninth Edition include updated photos and illustrations, updated references at the end of each chapter, a new Drug Therapy icon to spotlight nursing interventions related to drug therapy, expanded coverage of leadership and management, an expanded psychiatric care chapter, and expanded coverage of documentation, especially ensuring security in electronic medical records.
A companion Website includes medication tips, a dosage calculator, videos and animations on medication administration and safety, drug-related NCLEX®-style questions, FDA updates, and new clinical studies.
Okay, let’s just get this out there…I’ve been a nurse for almost 10 years and I’ve previously purchased the last 3 editions of this manual. It’s a FANTASTIC resource for nurses. One of the best. Do I recommend getting it? Yes, without hesitation.
However, this edition isn’t as good as the previous ones for two major reasons. 1) all the clinical procedures have been removed from the text and can only be accessed via the online edition. That’s annoying and cheap if you ask me. It’s always been in every other edition. 2) For a book with a copyright date of 2019, it should have the up to date hypertension guidelines. It doesn’t. The book states that Stage 1 hypertension is anything greater than 140/90 when we know that it was changed in 2017 to 130-139/80-89 and 140/90 is now considered Stage 2. I bring this up because in the last edition, they didn’t have the correct hypertension guidelines either claiming that the newer guidelines weren’t ready during publication time. So, what’s the reason this time? That’s two editions in a row now that the hypertensive guidelines are wrong. Hypertension is one of the most common maladies we will face. I just wish it was up to date.
