Summary: Assisting with Patient Care addresses the expanded role of the Patient Care Technician (PCT) or Multi-Skilled Worker (MSW), covering all of the basic concepts and skills needed by nursing assistants, as well as the more advanced skills required by PCTs or MSWs. This comprehensive text is visually appealing, with its full-color design and abundance of photos and drawings. Its engaging writing style and 7th-grade readi...ng level make it a favorite of students at all levels. Five new chapters and eight new procedures provide more comprehensive information on the nursing process, restraints, specimens, hearing and vision problems, and developmental disabilities. Covers both basic nursing assistant roles and advanced skills for the patient care technician/multi-skilled worker. Clear, 7th-grade reading level. Step-by-step procedures detail skills and are divided into pre-, procedure, and post-procedure sections for easier learning. Quality of Life sections in the procedures remind students to show respect for the person by performing simple courtesies such as knocking before entering the room, calling the person by name, and introducing self by name and title. Caring about Culture boxes provide information to help students learn how to address various practices of specific cultures. Delegation is discussed regarding the assistive personnel's responsibilities in accepting and performing assigned tasks. Hundreds of large, full-color photos and drawings provide visual reinforcement of concepts and skills. Learning Objectives for each chapter help students focus on information presented.

    Used this book for a Patient Care Associate class I took through the Red Cross. I found it VERY helpful. I took and passed the national exam thanks to this book! There is a disc included that I also found to be extra helpful. This book was much more detailed than other versions that students in other courses used.

    The disc that is included was extra helpful. It was very detailed and now that I am in nursing school, I have found that the explanations from this book were a great foundation for me to have back then!
