Sunrise River Press has set the standard for school nurses concerning the formulation of individualized healthcare plans (IHPs) designed to fit unique student health issues.
This comprehensive resource covers 66 chronic and acute conditions encountered daily by school nurses. Pathophysiology and school nurse management is covered in detail for all conditions and extensive assessment lists are included to assist in the development of IHPs. IHPs for each chapter include:
-NANDA standardized language with corresponding nursing interventions and expected outcomes.
-A case study and sample care plan.
-Sample 504 accommodations, emergency care plans (EAPs) and emergency evacuation plans (EEPs) – if the case study or condition warrants.
-A “preliminary IHP” to initiate immediate healthcare in the school setting.
Special student issue IHPs include coverage of:
-Chronic health conditions.
-Immigrant and refugee students.
-Medically complex, fragile and nursing-dependent students.
-Chronic Health Conditions and Medically Complex chapters provide a guide for less-frequently encountered conditions.
Supporting chapters thoroughly discuss school nurse management of special issues such as:
-Using IHPs with other education, health, and home care agency plans.
-504 plans and accommodations.
-Special education – Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and the use of IHP information.
-Other health impairment (OHI) and the IHP
