Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol A. Libonati, MS, RN, CS-P(Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This nursing drug book includes a step-by-step guide through all one must consider in administering and monitoring medications for patients.
Purpose: It is intended to be a comprehensive resource for medication administration and monitoring.
Audience: It is written for beginning and advanced nursing students.
Features: The step-by-step process identifies the methods of administration (with illustrations). Following this are descriptions of drugs by classification. This section includes action, indications for use, adverse reactions, contraindications and precautions, nursing considerations, planning and implementation, patient teaching, and evaluation of response. Detailed information on specific medications using both brand and generic names is also presented. The wording is clear and understandable. The text is easy to follow and it is easy to find a medication. The editor and contributors do a good job of identifying the various responsibilities a nurse has in administering medication, including reviewing lab work. I do believe this is a well done product. My one recommendation would be to provide a section on each medication that describes administration issues. In this book these issues are listed under implementation. For a beginning student I do suggest that one be very specific in terms of describing the steps in administration. One should be very clear at a very basic level. For example, the implementation instructions for Prolixin Decanoate are: administer IM q. 2- 4 wks. Preferred site: IM large muscles. Technique: Z track. The question I asked myself was whether a student would know when and how to give a medicine from the material provided. This is the one area where the student may not know exactly when to give the medicine.
Assessment: This is a good text that should serve student and practitioner well.
