Overview

A resource for the gerontological nurse, this book is based on "need-to-know" information with emphasis on resources that will be useful in clinical practice. The book is not designed to replace the textbook, rather it is designed to be a quick reference companion guide full of "real world" information useful to the practitioner caring for geriatric clients. For the most part, the book presents information that the nurse should know, but does not need to memorize. It is used as a tool to quickly reference guidelines, assessment information, charts, and resources available to the geriatric nurse and client. It is not designed to present theory or extensive rationale. The book presents a wide variety of information on subjects useful to the geriatric clinician in assessing, planning, implementing, and evaluation client care.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Marquis D. Foreman, PhD, RN, FAAN (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing)
Description: This is a new basic, bedside reference book for nursing staff caring for elderly patients and/or residents.
Purpose: Assessment is emphasized by this book, thereby seeming to imply that the purpose is to help the frontline caregivers to improve and make more comprehensive their assessments of older persons more comprehensive.
Audience: Given the fact that the book is written at a very basic level and in a very concrete manner emphasizing assessment and not intervention, it would seem that the target audience is nurse aides and LPNs. The author makes no indication as to the target audience.
Features: This reference guide consists of ten sections: introduction; assessment; drug administration; infection control; transcultural nursing; nursing considerations; nursing care planning; financing health care; clinical referrals; and an index. Each section is written in a tabular or list format.
Assessment: To be a useful bedside reference, the book is too complex. The emphasis on assessment without equivalent attention to intervention also minimizes the contribution of this book. It would appear that this book attempted to be a little bit of everything and as a result is mostly nothing.
