Beschreibung

Using a system- and case-based approach, this book equips nurses in more general wards with the knowledge and skills to care appropriately for the deteriorating patient in the clinical environment. These skills are recommended by NICE as essential for every nurse caring for acutely ill patients, and key to successful practice.

Each chapter is set out in a logical format for the reader which includes chapter contents and learning outcomes... written in a clear and understandable style...I think all nurses who participate in caring for patients from Level 0 to Level 2 will find this book a useful and easily understandable resource
