PEPID

Gerontological Nursing Suite for Institutions

 

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.
