Summary
This updated 8th edition includes additional nursing skills that include instructions for blood glucose testing and applying a pressure bandage, both important skills in today's practice; an alphabetical organization of skills that makes it easier to find information quickly, with each skill beginning on a new page; safety alerts that highlight information for patient safety and effective performance of skills; unexpected outcomes and related interventions to troubleshoot potential problems so that appropriate actions can then be taken; special considerations address teaching, the home care setting, and care modifications for pediatric and older adult patients; and a clear, two-column format shows how to perform skills, with rationales for each step to explain the reason behind the practice and the benefit to patients
