Product Description

Known for its comprehensive, readable, consistent format, as well as its coverage of pediatric and geriatric patients, this practical text and reference presents principles for managing complex patient care in the home environment. It addresses the medical conditions most commonly seen by the home care nurse in the context of the theoretical foundations of home health nursing. Patient education - a vital element of home care - is incorporated throughout. This edition features new chapters on oncology home care, social services for a home care patient, and innovative holistic nursing strategies. It also highlights HIPAA regulations related to home care, new trends in the growing area of telehealth, and content about disaster planning as it relates to people in their homes.
  • Essential information is provided on conditions most commonly seen in home care, including clients with congestive heart failure, ventilator-dependent patients, patients receiving IV therapy, and patients with AIDS.
  • A consistent format in the clinical chapters describes pathophysiology, assessment guidelines, equipment issues, and home care management - so information is easy to reference.
  • Separate chapters highlight unique care considerations for children and elderly patients.
  • Patient education boxes for each condition summarize important information patients need to know.
  • A chapter on working with families in the home emphasizes the importance of providing care to caregivers as well as the patient.
