  • Editorial Reviews
    Doody's 4 Star Review!
    The best aspect of this book is that it does indeed fit into a pocket and can be carried at all times. It is clear and concise and includes all the information nurses need in order to administer medications to patients. The index in the back helps to find the drug... If a healthcare provider is unable to carry a smartphone, then this pocket handbook could be useful.
