Lippincott’s Photo Atlas of Medication Administration uses the nursing process format to provide step-by-step nursing skills (with rationales). In addition to being completely illustrated,  the Photo Atlas also contains documentation guidelines and samples, and Unexpected Situations, which explain how to respond to unanticipated outcomes. Topics include removing medication from an ampule, removing medication from a vial, mixing medications from two vials in one syringe, administering an intradermal injection, and more.

·         Abundantly illustrated. When learning a new skill it is often overwhelming to only read how to perform the skill. This book offers a pictorial guide to performing each skill so skills will not only be learned but also remembered.
·         Documentation Guidelines direct students and graduate nurses in accurate documentation of the skill and their findings. Sample Documentation demonstrates proper documentation.
·         Nursing Alerts (in red type) draw attention to crucial information.
·         The nursing process framework is used to integrate related nursing responsibilities for each of the five steps.

·         Step-by-Step Skills. Each nursing skill is presented in a concise, straightforward, and simplified two-column format to facilitate comprehension and competent performance.
·         Scientific rationales accompany each nursing action to promote a deeper understanding of the basic principles supporting nursing care.
·         Unexpected Situations are provided after the explanation of normal outcomes. Each situation is followed by an explanation of how best to react, with rationales. This feature serves as a starting point for group discussion.
·         Special Considerations appear in each skill to explain the varying needs of patients across the lifespan and in various settings, including considerations for Infant, Child, and Older Adults; as well as Home Health Considerations (e.g., modifications and home care).
·         Skill Variations provide clear, start-to-finish instructions for variations in equipment or technique.
