New Book Highlights
Some recent additions to the Hahnemann collections:
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks / Rebecca Skloot (Crown Publishers, 2010). From the author's website:
"Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years."
Available on the New Book Shelf, and then in the Hahnemann general book collection, at WO 690 S628i 2010
" . . . contains the AORN-approved standards, recommended practices, guidelines and guidance statements." AORN guidance statements "provide suggested strategies to assist practitioners in developing organization-specific processes related to clinical and administrative issues."
