Book...Ask a Nurse: From Home Remedies to Hospital Care

  1. AACN and the People's Medical Society collaborate on this book

    Some info from website...

    "Ask a Nurse focuses on everyday complaints -- acne, allergies, cuts and scrapes, diarrhea, flu, insomnia, and stress among many others. Each entry explains common conditions, lists detailed symptoms, and offers top-to-bottom treatment "menus," featuring everything from effective over-the-counter medications to tried-and-true home remedies. The nurses address men's, women's, and children's unique health issues separately, with special attention paid to identifying and treating addictions and eating disorders; showing what type of contraception to use and how to avoid sexually transmitted diseases; and highlighting when infertility and sexual dysfunction can be addressed at home. The nurses also present a complete guide to consumer rights, dispensing tips on making a hospital stay more comfortable, choosing a reliable pharmacist, assembling a home medical kit, and deciding when a living will or do-not-resuscitate order is appropriate.

    Why are nurses considered experts in health care education? Consider the facts:

    Nurses are the only licensed health care professionals trained in health education;
    Nurses deliver up to 98% of all hospital care, making them the most reliable source of inside information about treatment issues and problems;
    Public opinion polls show that nurses are the most trusted and respected health care professionals; and
    Nurses provide more hands-on care to consumers than any other health profession. "
