Absolutely horrible. So many contradictions. Example: in one of the boxes is says that arculis senilis is cause by calcium deposits around the cornea of the eye, then directly below in a paragraph on the same page it says that it is caused by lipid deposits! If that's not a contradiction, then here's another one I found: In the beginning of one of the chapters it says that most abused elder are caucasian females, then a few pages later it says that the most commonly abused elders are minority females. Unbelievable errors all over this book! One section of the book states that short term memory is relatively stable in the elderly, then in another chapter it states that short term memory begins to decline!! Shall I keep going?!? It says that one of the signs of neglect is malnutrition, then when I took the practice questions provided it said that malnutrition is not a sign of neglect. One of the rationales said that thyroid function is not an indicator of elder abuse, then why was that one of the correct answers in a question about what test should the nurse anticipate when suspecting elder abuse?Was this review helpful?
