Product Description

Whether you're doing in-home health or working within a nursing home or a long-term care facility, having a clinical and drug reference designed specifically for the care of mature adults is crucial. With general nursing considerations, as well as specialized content for gerontological nurses, PEPID Gerontological Nursing Suite, or RN Gero, was developed with the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists specifically for gerontological nurses. RN Gero provides information on how to handle everything from falls to palliative care, with instant access to information such as Fulmer SPICES, gerontological assessments, orientation-memory concentrations and infection scores.

Product Features

  • Specialized Clinical Content
    Includes domains of assessment, geriatric risk-assessment tools, pharmacology considerations for older adults, and geriatric multisystem syndromes

  • Drug Database
    Instantly access information on more than 13,000 drug names, including U.S. and Canadian trade names, generics, OTCs, herbals and supplements.

  • Pill Identification Tool
    Easily identify patient medications with just a few details — score, shape and color, even when all you have is a partial imprint.

  • Differential Diagnosis Generator
    Generate a weighted list of potential diagnoses by inputting a patient's gender, age, symptoms and symptom severity. The results are organized by likelihood of occurrence based on the selected factors.

  • Drug Interactions Checker
    Check for potential interactions between drug-drug, drug-herbal and drug-nutrient combinations, with results providing severity ratings and an explanation of mechanisms for each potential interaction.

  • Drug-Allergy Checker
    Cross-reference a patient's food or drug allergies with their current medications and foods, and receive an alert if an allergy or sensitivity exists.

  • IV Compatibility
    Quickly compare compatibility of meds in Y-site, syringe and additives with our IV Compatibility Tool, which allows you to check drug-solution and drug-drug-solution combinations prior to mixing in clinical situations.

  • Laboratory Manual
    PEPID's lab results include critical values, descriptions, normal ranges, interpretation highs and lows, links to related tests and equations, and physiology and tech information.

  • Illustrations
    More than 750 proprietary illustrations aid treatment through their use in patient education or as a clinical reference.

  • Dosing Calculators
    More than 3,000 weight-based and IV drip-rate dosing calculators are linked directly to drug information. Each drug-specific calculator is pre-populated and integrated within related clinical content to promote medication safety.

  • Medical Calculators
    Over 400 medical calculators, equations and scores — including body surface area, Glasgow Coma Scale, total calcium, NIH Stroke Scale, port analysis, and more.

  • Evidence-based Medicine
    Employ best-practice methods by referencing evidence-based content inquiries from the Family Physicians Inquiries Network, or FPIN, fully embedded within clinical and drug content so that you can address the most important patient care questions.
