Updated in an all new 3rd edition, Pediatric Care Plans for the Hospitalized Child  is an essential guide to preparing individualized care plans tailored to meet the special needs of the non-critical, hospitalized child. This book provides a quick reference for correlating pediatric medical diagnoses with nursing diagnoses, and will serve as a valuable tool in the clinical setting.  A unique thirteen-part format provides care plans that are organized by medical diagnoses with six corresponding nursing diagnoses for each medical diagnosis. In this new edition all of the nursing care plans are situated in tables instead of text, making it much easier for the reader to understand and access.
