Is there any home health books that would help me out in hh?

Besides my Lippincott Nursing Drug Handbook, I carry along these three pocket-size references: Handbook of Home Health Nursing Procedures by Robyn Rice (ISBN 0-323-00911-5); Pocket Guide to Home Care Standards by Springhouse (ISBN 1-58255-039-5); and Nursing Documentation Handbook by T.M. Marrelli (ISBN 0-323-01097-0). Even if I don't need to use them for references during any particular shift, I have them for "reading material" when I'm on night shift with nothing to keep me busy (i.e., I've gone through my food supply for the night!)

That line made me smile. I like to have a few different kinds of snacks on hand too. It breaks up the time really nice.
