This is a concise collection of nursing procedures for the care of children in the hospital and dispensary. The complete and general nursing care in any one ailment is not discussed. For this reason its value is confined to that of a supplementary textbook for student and graduate nurses. The subject matter covered is presented in a clear and efficient manner. The materials required for each nursing procedure are conveniently listed along with a short discussion of the method. The part devoted to nursing care of the premature infant does not appear to be adequate for this highly important branch of pediatric nursing. As a collection of notes on children's nursing it serves its intended purpose, but it will be of practical interest only to those engaged in institutional work.
