Doody's Review Service just named Pediatric Acute Care: A Guide for Interprofessional Practice by Karin Reuter-Rice and Beth Bolick "a must-have for practitioners." Anna Jarrett, PhD, CNS, ACNP, BC, Washington Regional Medical Center writes that,
“This much-needed book on pediatric acute care covers much more than just body systems, encompassing certification, privileging, documentation, coding, and evidence-based practice as well. The best chapters in the book are the ones on child maltreatment and toxicology, and the pediatric MCI triage is particularly helpful. This is a must-have for practitioners who treat children in the acute care setting."
Thank you, Doody's!
