Evidence-based geriatric nursing protocols for best practice
by Boltz, Marie

9780826171290Marie BoltzEvidence-Based Geriatric Nursing Protocols for Best PracticeNamed a 2013 Doody's Core Title "The evidence-based protocols are designed as a primary reference and are useful, substantive, and timely...The broader contributions of useful format and succinct review of the evidence make it likely that this text will continue to be the leading resource in nursing education and practice."--The Gerontologist"Now more than ever, nurses are called upon to lead efforts to embed evidence-based practice in daily operations. As the IOM report states, 'nurses have key roles to play as team members and leaders for a reformed and better-integrated, patient-centered health care system.' The process of implementing sweeping change in health care will likely take years; however, nurses must start pragmatically and focus on these critically important protocols that have demonstrated improved outcomes for older adults. Simply stated, 'Pick this book up and use it.'"From the Foreword, Susan L. Carlson, MSN, APRN, ACNS-BC, GNP-BC, FNGNAPresident, National Gerontological Nursing Association"As a gerontological clinical educator/research nurse, I will often use this as a reference. The format and the content are good, and the explanations of how to best use the evidence simplify the process of sifting through mountains of information to figure the best practice." Score: 97, 5 Stars. --Doody'sOne of the premier reference books for geriatric nurses in hospital, long-term, and community settings, this 4th edition has been thoroughly updated to provide the most current, evidence-based protocols for care of common clinical conditions and issues in elderly patients. Designed to improve the quality, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness of health care, these guidelines are the result of collaboration between leading practitioners and educators in geriatric nursing and New York University College of Nursing.Protocols for each clinical condition have been developed by experts in that particular area, and most have been systematically tested by over 300 participating hospitals in "Nurses Improving Care for Health System Elders" (NICHE). Evidence is derived from all levels of care, including community, primary, and long-term care. A systematic method in compliance with the AGREE appraisal process was used to rate the levels of evidence for each protocol. Protocols are organized in a consistent format for ease of use, and each includes an overview, evidence-based assessment and intervention strategies, and an illustrative case study with discussion. Additionally, each protocol is embedded within chapter text, which provides the context and detailed evidence for the protocol. Each chapter contains resources for further study.Key Features: Updated to provide a wide range of evidence-based geriatric protocols for best practices Contains new chapters on function-focused care, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, mistreatment detection, acute care models, and transitional careIllustrates application of clinical protocols to real-life practice through case studies and discussionEdited by nationally known leaders in geriatric nursing education and practice, who are endorsed by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing and NICHE Encompasses the contributions of 58 leading practitioners of geriatric careWritten for nursing students, nurse leaders, and practitioners at all levels, including those in specialty roles - Description from Syndetics

The nursing America: one year behind the nursing stations of an inner-city hospital
by Balfour, Sandy

9781585422814Sandy BalfourNursing America: One Year Behind the Nursing Stations of an Inner-City HospitalThe world of nursing as seen through the prism of eight nurses' lives over the course of a year working at the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee. Nursing is one of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States. What draws people to this most challenging of professions? And what is it like to return, day after day, to a place where lives hang in the balance? In Nursing America, Sandy Balfour describes the daily joy and discouragement, hope and despair experienced by eight nurses, each from one of the different specialty units of an inner-city hospital. "Nobody ever came to the hospital to see a nurse," points out one of the nurses in this book. Yet it is often the nurses whom the patients never forget. From the painstaking job of providing people with care and compassion to the intricate doctor-nurse relationships, the nursing profession brings new meaning to the term "people skills." Balfour addresses the current climate in hospitals, in which funding is becoming more and more scarce, and its effects on nursing. In this refreshingly candid and intriguing account, Balfour takes readers to the front lines of nursing to reveal the men and women who work in this fascinating field. - Description from Syndetics
