My latest book, The Everything Guide to Caring for Aging Parents is now available. It can be purchased from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com It is based on my personal experiences with my own parents and in-laws as well as my 30 years in home health nursing. I hope it serves as valuable information to health care professionals as well as anyone coping with this situation. If anyone would be interested in writing a review on their website or blog, please email me. I have a limited number of review copies available.
I recently wrote an article for Suite101.com about the risks associated with shoulder pain pumps. Pain control is such an important issue for nurses, but these devices do have certain risks that nurses and all health care professionals as well as patients should be aware of. Take some time to read about this issue and familiarize yourself with these risks. Photo: Stryker Pain Pump
