    Review: Handbook of Home Health Care Administration, Sixth Edition "should be on the shelf in every branch of every healthcare at home provider"

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jun 28, 2016 4:41:07 PM

    In an outstanding new review for Handbook of Home Health Care Administration, Sixth Edition by Marilyn D. Harris, Home Care Technology Report raves that it is, “…a textbook that should be on the shelf in every branch of every healthcare at home provider."

    In fact, the review goes one step further with its praise,

    "Let's modify that. It should never be on the shelf but should live on the administrator's or branch manager's desk. In the current edition, which is a comprehensive, 1,000-page tour de force, editor Marilyn D. Harris has assembled a team of over 80 authors to cover, in detail, everything a private duty or certified agency administrator needs to know to be compliant and successful."
