PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lippincott Williams & Wilkins announced today that it is expanding the expert clinical content in Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills to include 100 pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and 75 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nursing procedures. The new procedures are the latest addition to the comprehensive list of essential medical-surgical, critical care, perioperative, maternal-neonatal, pediatric, psychiatric, and emergency nursing procedures that make up the trusted online clinical resource. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals, and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, and pharmacy.
With the most recent enhancement, Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills will give nurses accurate, step-by-step guidance for more than 1,200 evidence-based procedures. The online resource provides skills checklists and competency tests for each procedure to help facilities verify staff competence. Each procedure undergoes a thorough annual review process to ensure the most up-to-date clinical information is provided. Facilities can customize and add procedures to meet their specific needs.
“Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills gives NICU and PICU nurses immediate access to the important and highly specialized procedures necessary to care for their young patients,” says Judy McCann, MSN, RN, and Chief Nursing Officer at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. “In a quickly changing environment, such as the NICU or PICU, instant access to complex procedures at the point of care can help nurses improve outcomes when caring for critically ill infants and children.”
The new procedures are available online and through mobile devices to subscribing institutions. For more information or to request a free trial of Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills, contact Lippincott Williams & Wilkins at 1-800-326-1685 or visit our website.
