Overview

This easy-to-use reference offers quick and convenient access to the procedures most commonly used in home health care nursing. Every procedure reflects the home perspective, including a Documentation section, which reviews requirements necessary for home health reimbursement and an "instructions for care giver" area. The book's versatile format follows the nursing process, yet is highly usable for actual practice. Coverage of hot topics includes environmental assessment, communication, and hospice procedures. Students and practicing nurses will appreciate the benefits of this useful reference for years to come.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathie E. Yonkers, MS, RN-C, ANP (Visiting Nurse Association of Utica and Oneida City, Inc.)
Description: This book attempts to provide a full range of information from initial assessment to specific procedure protocol for home health nurses. Included is equipment, purpose of the procedure, outcome identification, planning, implementation, and evaluation. Documentation examples are also included.
Purpose: It is intended to be a clinical support tool, providing steps to perform nursing skills as well as cues to promote critical thinking. The authors suggest that all types of educational programs would benefit from this book, and in particular home care nurses would find it useful.
Audience: Practicing nurses in home care, as well as students in learning environments will find outlines of specific nursing procedures. This book is not intended for beginning nursing instruction. It is better suited for the nurse in structured environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and step down units.
Features: Illustrations are predominantly black and white, with some color illustrations. Icons identifying glove use or special equipment are not particularly useful. References tend to be superficial and somewhat outdated. The book has a pleasing appearance and is compact and easily portable.
Assessment: This is not a highly rated book, since evaluation cues and critical thinking probes necessary to home care are significantly lacking throughout. It would not be overly useful in home care, as many procedures relate better to well-equipped, structured environments not usually found in the home. The techniques of teaching are not addressed, and case management and family involvement are largely ignored.
