Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Enriched with new photographs,Patient Care Skillscontinues its tradition of excellence with a refreshed approach to covering all aspects of basic care skills. This book helps readers learn both the specifics of the procedures as well as general rules of good body mechanics, patient handling, and safety for patients and physical therapists/assistants. Comprehensive coverage provides all the information health care professionals need to perform skills related to patient positioning and transfer, vital signs, aseptic technique, and more. For each procedure presented, step-by-step illustrations are accompanied by brief written explanations. Following the sequence of illustrations for a specific procedure decreases the need for extensive text explanations and provides readers with a visual reference to determine if the sequence of steps they are performing matches the sequence of steps presented. Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy students and professionals.

This is a great reference for the PT student or the experienced clinician with the goal of instructing the PT aide in clinical handling skills. It is complete with pictures and text that is easy to understand and somewhat concise.

I liked the new edition and thought that the additional pictures provided the user with a better sense of the described guarding and transfer techniques.

I was told that this book was "used - in very good condition". That "it just sat on a bookshelf and was not used". When I received the book the front and back covers were falling book, the book itself, and the spiral spine were significantly bent. If I had any idea the book was in this condition I would have never bought it. It's not worth my trouble of returning it and I could never have another here in time for class anyways. Quite disappointed...
