Critical Behaviors in the Care of the Mentally Retarded. Volume I: Behavior of Nurses.
Larsen, Judith Kaeding; And Others
Designed for use in education and training and for applied research in selection and evaluation methods, the book reviews the actual behaviors of nurses caring for the institutionalized mentally retarded. Abstracts of more than 2,000 critical behaviors of nurses (incidents derived from reports of actual observations) are included. Behaviors are organized under 16 major categories: providing for physical needs, checking and observing, training, controlling behavior, responding to emotional needs, preventing injury to patient and others, coping with emergencies, using ingenuity, taking responsibility, maintaining ethical and moral behavior, contributing to ward management, interacting with families and visitors, reporting, supervising working patients, and teaching employees. Within each category effective and ineffective behaviors are listed separately. A companion source book describes behaviors of attendants (see EC 031 240). (KW)
