Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"What nursing beyond the hospital really means. ICU nurse Tilda Shalof leaves the hospital behind to accompany the nurses who work in homes, from mansions to shacks to the streets, all across the country. Working with the Victorian Order of Nurses, a Canadian not-for-profit organization that provides home and community care, Tilda meets a wide variety of nursing professionals who offer untraditional care, sometimes in unlikely settings. This book brings to light new health care issues. The needs of our aging population put pressure on our health care system; more people need care in their homes and community supports to stay well. How nurses care for people with a home, living on the street, for teen parents, returning soldiers with PTSD, those with physical disabilities, sex trade workers, and complex pediatrics. Tilda Shalof is an intensive care unit nurse with thirty years of experience in Israel, New York, and Canada. She is the author of A Nurse's Story. She lives in Toronto"--Provided by publisher.
