Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 4, 2007
On October 31, 2007, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins launched Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills, an Internet-based point-of-care tool that offers evidence-based clinical reference and training for nurses and unprecedented support for hospitals seeking American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) MagnetTM accreditation. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals, and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry. Built on the award-winning Procedures product, this new offering comes with enhancements that combine superior clinical content with unparalleled ease of use.
"We've designed Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills to not only meet the critical needs of nurses, but also to give hospitals a powerful tool that meets regulatory guidelines and supports their efforts to achieve improved patient care and outcomes," said Rich Wohl, Executive Vice President, Publishing for Wolters Kluwer Health. "Nurses will get instant access to critical patient care information, and nurse managers will get unrivaled customization and tracking capabilities."
Developed by a team of expert nurses with extensive clinical experience, Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills offers an impressive combination of features that help promote, monitor, and maintain staff excellence. More than 580 procedures and skills have been thoroughly reviewed by in-house Wolters Kluwer Health staff and independent reviewers to ensure that all content is in full compliance with nursing practice standards and the guidelines of The Joint Commission, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, and other respected nursing authorities. Nearly one thousand full-color images and videos give nurses accurate, step-by-step guidance and show critical steps of procedures being performed. "Quick Lists" provide brief refreshers when time is critical.
"We are opening a state-of-the-art hospital in December and are purchasing only the best resources. That's why we chose Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills," said Carol Beaumont, Director of Inpatient Nursing, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, Bolingbrook, Illinois. "The vast amount of information that will be at our nurses' fingertips is awesome, and the fact that it will all be maintained and updated by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins will go a long way in easing our workload so we can concentrate on what's important - our patients."
Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills allows nurse managers and administrators to create an unlimited number of custom procedures, competency checklists, and quick lists, to ensure that all content matches their facility's current policies and guidelines. An "audit trail" feature precisely tracks all custom changes. Procedures also have associated competency checklists, to help nurse managers evaluate and document staff performance.
