Description

Thoroughly updated for its Second Edition, Hospital Medicine offers practical, evidence-based guidelines for the care of hospitalized patients. The only book geared directly and exclusively to inpatient management—and edited by the national leaders of the hospitalist field—Hospital Medicine includes indications for admission, guidelines for consultation, procedures for hospital discharge, diagnostic algorithms, and critical paths detailing effective, outcomes-oriented treatment plans for a range of diseases and disorders. New chapters in this edition focus on the hospitalist's increasing role in providing critical care, managing surgical patients with medical co-morbidities, ensuring patient safety and preventing adverse events, and directing hospital systems areas such as informatics, quality improvement, and practice management.
