The Nursing Assistant fulfills the need for a brief, practical guide to nursing assistance in acute, subacute or long-term care settings. Following the models of the nursing process, state curricula and OBRA mandates, the text provides 73 step-by-step procedures reflecting the tasks nursing assistants most commonly perform.
Rationales for each procedure ensure you have the “why” behind patient-care actions. Critical-thinking case studies, along with a range of study resources at the end of each chapter, give you ample opportunity to apply new knowledge.
The 6th Edition reflects the latest CDC, OSHA and HIPAA guidelines. It expands the discussion of patient-care goals and cultural awareness. The new edition also adds new person-centered case studies throughout.
