Pediatric home care
Aspen Publishers, Jan 1, 1997 - Family & Relationships - 591 pages
This revised edition of this successful title acknowledges the changes in the important and growing area of pediatric home care. Instructional aids such as handouts on environmental assessment and skin, wound, and ostomy care enhance the book's usefulness to the practitioner as well as in classroom settings. Extensive revisions to existing chapters and the addition of several new chapters address care of the post-transplant child (lung, liver, heart, kidney, and pancreas), wound care, identifying and handling possible abuse situations in the home, and school nursing concerns, among others.
