The Prentice Hall Nurse`s Drug Guide 2009 provides all the information you need for safe, effective drug administration in any setting! This title by Pearson Prentice Hall is a current and reliable reference designed to provide comprehensive information needed to make appropriate decisions regarding drug administration. This new edition includes 14 monographs for new drugs recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and over 235 updates to drug indications, available forms, adverse effects, dosages, and more. New IV administration information has been added and/or updated regarding children. New subheadings for IV preparation and administration of IV medications for children add to the ease of locating appropriate information by age.
Each drug monograph provides the necessary information for safe and effective drug administration. The authors recognize that the decision-making process related to drug administration is a cyclical one. For example, assessments are made both prior to and after drug administration. Thus, nursing diagnoses and interventions may change as a result of an achieved therapeutic effect, therapeutic failure, manifestation of an adverse effect, or demonstration of a learning need. The authors believe that the users of this drug reference will find that the clear and logical design of the drug monographs facilitates decision making and supports the nursing process. Comprehensive, current, and clinically relevant!
