About this book


This book provides a comprehensive review of the modern hospital and serves as a valuable resource for hospital administrators, clinicians, surgeons, nurses, researchers, and the public who has an interest in the hospital as an industry. Early sections discuss the transformation of hospitals over the centuries, the new medical world order, the concept of the modern hospital, the academic mission of the modern hospital, and the economics of modern healthcare. The text also addresses the nine specific elements of hospital modernization, including the organization of new emergency departments, the trauma room, hybrid operating rooms, intensive care units, radiology, pharmaceutical, nutritional and, finally, patient and public relation services as essential aspects of every modern hospital. These nine elements reflect the most important and most visible indicators of modernization and transformation of the modern hospital. Lastly, this book examines the team approach as an essential component of embracing the new hospital transformation as well as specific perspectives on the modern hospital, such as perspectives of nurses, physicians, surgeons, and hospital administrators. All chapters are written by practicing experts in their fields and include the most current scientific and clinical information.

The Modern Hospital: Patients Centered, Disease Based, Research Oriented, Technology Driven provides an all-inclusive review of the hospital industry and is a valuable resource for administrators, clinicians, surgeons, nurses, and researchers.
