When should care stop? and Who determines vitality? The comprehensive coverage includes sound guidelines for nursing assessment and management; basic clinical issues with elderly populations; specialized practice protocols and advances; and lively discussion of social and policy issues. Essential reading for students, educators, and practitioners committed to quality care for the hospitalized elderly.
