Overview

Enriched with new photographs, Patient Care Skills continues its tradition of excellence with a refreshed approach to covering all aspects of basic care skills. This book helps readers learn both the specifics of the procedures as well as general rules of good body mechanics, patient handling, and safety for patients and physical therapists/assistants. Comprehensive coverage provides all the information health care professionals need to perform skills related to patient positioning and transfer, vital signs, aseptic technique, and more. For each procedure presented, step-by-step illustrations are accompanied by brief written explanations. Following the sequence of illustrations for a specific procedure decreases the need for extensive text explanations and provides readers with a visual reference to determine if the sequence of steps they are performing matches the sequence of steps presented.
