Purchased The Nursing 2011 Drug Handbook was reviewed a week and a half early before product actually arrived. The review was meant for another book I purchased and I selected the wrong button. Book arrived on Jan 4/11. The cover itself was ok but once opened the first thin page had showed signs that it had already had fallen out and been glued back to the page before it the thicker piece before it. I also found that the page bundle was starting to come off the book cover and the other pages showed signs of to becoming loose soon. The book was advertised as new but shows signs that it is not an untouched book.
I purchased this as I am a homecare provider for my brother who takes quite a few meds daily. I like to keep up with what he is taking, side effects, etc. This is the most comprised book I have found. It had every medication that he is taking which is very helpful. I had purchased another drug book that only had maybe 1/2 of the medications he takes so it was essentially worthless.The pill book I recvd when I first started working with the company I'm employed by doesn't even have all his medications in it. I would recommend this book to anyone in the nursing field or who takes alot of medications and wants to know the facts about them.
got this book for personal use in case of an emergency such as an earthquake...
it has photos of what drugs should look like, is easy to read and will enable the reader to perform first aid.
a great reference to have on hand.
I like this particular book because of its' familiar text and format. I bought this book because I am in Nursing School and the price was reasonable.
I examined over a dozen drug handbooks before I settled on this one. It's not just another rehash of
product inserts, but is quite well done. As a home health nurse for a quarter century, I find this suits my needs best. It particularly surpasses the others in organization and in the pictures of meds.
