Nurses' Guide to Clinical Procedures by Jean Smith-Temple
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The revised Fifth Edition of this pocket guide provides step-by-step instructions for over 200 common nursing procedures. This edition has over 15 new procedures, a reorganised Table of Contents that helps readers find information quickly, and a new art program with new and updated illustrations. Each procedure is organised according to the nursing process, including assessment, sample diagnoses, planning, desired outcomes, implementation, evaluation, and documentation. Planning sections emphasize individual client needs and include paediatric, geriatric, home health, cultural, end-of-life, and delegation considerations. Implementation sections present specific steps and rationales in two-column format. Icons highlight cultural considerations and cost-cutting tips. This edition will be available for PDAs in October 2005
