Do any of you guys use Epocrates? Would it be worth the investment?
What is it?
It is an electronic database tha can be downloaded to a PDA. It's supposed to have lots of good info about labs, diseases, and meds.
I THINK my one cowork has it. It's like a mini computer. I thought it was a gameboy thing at first. It looks really cool but i dont' know how much data's is in it. He allways seems to have it handy. i'll have to ask him.
EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I use it DAILY!!!! I work in a MICU/SICU and it has come in priceless several times!!!!!!!
I ditto the EXCELLENT!!! verdict. I also use it daily and colleagues are always asking me to look things up about unusual diagnoses, side effects, IV drug compatibilities, etc. They also know that they can always count on me to countersign drip rates because I have handy-dandy drip rate calculator to do a triple-check!
As a new nurse, I am SOOOO happy that I made this little "investment!"
