Overview

An introduction to basic tasks of patient care, this new edition uses over 700 all new photographs and illustrations to guide the student practitioner through every step involved in the procedures of patient care. The third edition is extensive in both the individual procedures covered, and the breadth of groups of procedures covered. Such topics as aseptic techniques, range of motion exercises, the use of wheelchairs, taking vital signs, documentation, techniques of transferring patients, and teaching patients how to use assistive devices for ambulation are discussed in detail.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gail M. Huber, MHPE, PT (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a basic text providing information on skills necessary to provide general patient care. The emphasis is on a visual representation of the skills.
Purpose: The focus is on providing an introductory text that emphasizes the visual aspects of skill performance. Skills that are done particularly well include bed mobility, transfers, and gait training. There are a few books that provide this amount of visual detail. Many alternatives are provided for a skill.
Audience: The book is designed for students, and although initially geared for physical therapists, it can be used for other health professionals, e.g., nurses, aides, and occupational therapists. It is not a useful book for experienced clinicians, other than as a training tool for on-the-job trained aides.
Features: The strength of this book is the detail given to the photographic illustrations. A clear picture of the skill, equipment, and environment is provided. The references could be more plentiful and up-to-date; some chapters have no references. The chapter on aseptic technique has a small section on wound dressings that is very inadequate.
Assessment: This edition has made a number of significant improvements over the second edition published in 1990, including improved quality and updating of photographs to be more realistic. There are now review questions at the end of each chapter, and an index is included. The new chapter on the ADA is a helpful resource. However, the book does not live up to its full potential. The decision-making aspects of selecting the appropriate skill for a particular patient is missing. Some case studies may be helpful. The scientific basis for some aspects of treatment could be improved, allowing students to see why specific skills are performed. It is not a stand-alone text for the student.
