Description:

Lippincott's Visual Encyclopedia of Clinical Skills is an innovative book that improves nursing skills through the use of close-up pictures. More than 700 detailed, full-color photographs, diagrams, step-by-step illustrations, and other graphics help nurses better understand the correct way to perform everyday clinical skills and procedures. More than 220 current nursing procedures are made instantly understandable through an innovative visual approach. The clear, succinct text for each skill includes step-by-step instructions and rationales for critical steps, explaining why that step is important. Recurring icons alert nurses to vital safety information and instances where the patient's age requires procedure modifications.
