HASH(0x9f0cc414) out of 5 stars Great restorative nursing resource Feb. 25 2008
By Matthew Ryan Sevier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book on restorative nursing. The chapters include overview of restorative care, staff education, evaluating older adults for restorative care, restorative care activities, motivating the older adult to engage in restorative care, and documentation and reimbursement. The chapter on staff education includes copies of powerpoint slides that work very well for initial training of restorative aides. There are various forms scattered throughout the book and everything seems to be integrated with the quality assurance process. I was also happy to find a chapter on how to motivate residents. Overall, it is a most excellent book and far less expensive than BJ Collard's book. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9f0cc468) out of 5 stars Not What I Was Expecting Sept. 25 2014
By sandra Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although this book offers wonderful information, that supports the necessity and benefits, that restorative care has for older adults in all care settings. The examples provided are very limited in each area of restorative care. This book would not increase the nursing assistants' knowledge base in the specific area of restorative nursing care. The book repeats the same basic information contained in every state mandated nursing assistant course curriculum in the nation. I was disappointed, I was expecting a useful tool to assist nursing assistants with additional information/training and skills to advance their practice in restorative care.
I want to add, that I respect the collaboration of these four authors/educators for their research, published works, expertise and commitment to improving the quality of life of older adults residing in all care settings.
This book is good for nurses that have no experience in restorative care and are not aware of the curriculum/course taught to nursing assistants students.
