Overview

When home and hospice care providers carry MOSBY'S HOME CARE AND HOSPICE DRUG HANDBOOK, they have the most current drug information at their side. It includes introductory chapters on Medicare, home infusion therapy, and special patient populations; detailed coverage of drugs commonly used in home and hospice care organized by disorder or condition; and a four-color drug identification atlas. This handy resource also highlights important information such as nursing implications, contraindications, patient education, and documentation for quality and reimbursement. It's the only handbook that focuses on the drug information that home care and hospice providers need when caring for their unique, growing patient population.

* Includes important foundation content in six introductory chapters that cover Medicare reimbursement of drug therapy, home infusion therapy, quality and safety, special patient populations, and other topics.
• Organizes thirty-six home and hospice conditions alphabetically to allow fast retrieval of essential information.
• Supplies general care considerations, medical diagnoses and ICD-9 codes, desired outcomes of therapy, nursing diagnoses, documentation and reimbursement tips, drug cost considerations, and informational resources for every condition.
• Describes in detail hundreds of drugs identified as being the most commonly used medications in home care and hospice settings.
• Provides a full-color drug identification guide organized alphabetically to help clinicians ensure that the patient receives the correct medication.
• Supplies specific documentation tips for drugs used with each condition to insure quality and support reimbursement for home care and hospice organizations.
• Includes an alphabetical list of all drugs covered by generic and trade name with page references for quick reference.
• Highlights contraindications to alert clinicians to known sensitivities to a drug.
• Presents patient education and teaching priorities, including information for taking medications safely in home or hospice settings.
• Identifies common side effects and life-threatening adverse reactions for immediate recognition in emergency situations.
• Includes extensive information on drug/drug and drug/food interactions for patient safety.
• Features a functional, user-friendly two-color design that includes icons for nursing implications, contraindications, patient education and teaching priorities, and documentation for quality and reimbursement; color drug monograph headings; and screened index pages to facilitate easy location of information.
• Includes an appendix on low income medication assistance programs since the high cost of many drugs can effect patient compliance.
• Features a flexible binding for easy access and convenient use in home and hospice settings.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Maria Pappas-Rogich, DrPH, RNCS (SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica-Rome)
Description: This handbook is designed to make the increasingly sophisticated knowledge of pharmacotherapeutics available to the nurse practicing in the fields of home care and hospice. Part I includes a description of the special considerations of administering medications to patients, and Part II provides sections concerning specific drug care guidelines in treating common disease entities. The five appendixes provide information such as nomograms for determining body surface, medication assistance programs, and medication monitoring forms.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the clinician with an easy reference to the identification and administration principles of drug regimens necessary to a holistic plan of care for the home care and hospice patient. Chapters on home infusion therapy, pain management, AIDS, and special patient populations are especially relevant and unique. The full-color drug identification atlas is particularly helpful to providers in these settings.
Audience: The handbook would be most useful to clinicians practicing in settings where quick, easy access to drug identification and management is essential to providing the highest standard of care.
Features: The content is presented in a text format with section and chapter headings and sub-headings. Several well-organized tables, a full-color drug identification guide, practical appendixes, and the addition of a glossary enhance the presentation and utility of the handbook. The section on guidelines for use of the handbook provides a key to the pictorial codes used throughout the text to indicate special management considerations, and this contributes to readability. Although the introductory chapter references are current and relevant, later chapters are not well referenced, thus making it difficult for the reader to locate or validate the source of the content.
Assessment: This drug handbook for home care and hospice is useful primarily for clinicians practicing in these settings. It provides an overview of drug therapy principles relevant to home care and hospice practice, and specific drug administration guidelines for illnesses commonly managed by home care and hospice nurses. Several unique and relevant features make this handbook a meaningful contribution to the clinician's resources.
