Illustrated examples walk nursing students through dosage problems step by step, using all 3 methods and often comparing approaches side by side. The content progresses from simple mathematical topics to complex applications for calculating and administering a range of medications.
The updated 2nd edition delivers the most up-to-date standards for dosage calculation. It draws on safety recommendations of the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals, the Institute for Safe Medical Practice, and the CDC’s One and Only Campaign.
