Technology enhancements now allow hospitals to customize procedures to meet facility's needs
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins announced today enhancements to Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills, its premier online tool for nurses at the point of care. With 120 maternal-neonatal nursing procedures and increased customization resources for nurse managers, Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills is the most comprehensive and flexible nursing tool available to hospitals today. It continues to offer evidence-based clinical reference and training for nurses and unprecedented support for hospitals seeking American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet™ accreditation. 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, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.
The new maternal-neonatal procedures, developed by practicing maternal-neonatal nurses, are in addition to the existing base of over 780 procedures currently offered in Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills, including 200 pediatric procedures added earlier this year. Each procedure undergoes a thorough annual review process to ensure the most up-to-date clinical information.
“We are proud to be able to provide hospitals with a comprehensive list of important procedures for their maternal-neonatal nurses,” says Judy McCann, Executive Publisher, Nursing Practice, Wolters Kluwer Health, “Our latest customization options give nurse managers freedom to tailor Lippincott's Nursing Procedures and Skills to meet the needs of their program and ensure maximum accuracy and efficiency.”
