Designed for quick reference, this portable handbook provides practical, step-by-step guidance on how to respond to over 170 emergency situations that can arise in every unit of a healthcare facility

Coverage of each emergency begins with bulleted, quick-scanning, action-oriented rapid response instructions and then proceeds to explanations of what caused the emergency and preventive strategies.

Tables and checklists provide vital information at a glance. Numerous sidebars and more than 200 illustrations describe and demonstrate key procedures. Icons highlight complications and potential dangers that can arise during and after the initial response.
