Summary

An ideal resource for aspiring nursing assistants who are preparing for their state testing and certification, this popular guide on long-term care stresses the importance of the nursing assistant in improving the quality of life for residents. Addressing the most recent trends and changes in health care delivery, it emphasizes compassionate, restorative care that focuses on the individuality of each resident, and highlights the psychosocial and physical needs as well as the significance of resident choices and independence. Examines such areas as cross-training and multi-skilling, and dedicates a full chapter to subacute care, with information that directly relates to the responsibilities of nursing assistants in this area (i.e. dealing with mechanical ventilators, tracheostomy, IV's, feeding pumps, and gastrointestinal suction). Presents current information on infection control, and stresses the importance of proper communication throughout, with discussions on observing, reporting, recording, as well as computer use. Covers advanced directives, including living wills and power-of-attorney for health care; growth and development, including an explanation of developmental tasks at each age level; and new procedures for taking temperatures. Includes exercises and competency tests, and offers an appealing new design with numerous photographs and illustrations to support discussions. For nursing assistants, NA training programs, and other health care professionals.
