Wonderful resource for nursing staff

I work in critical care in an SICU and use this reference often. Very efficient and tons of information available. Great for my nursing students and new grads that I precept as well! Highly recommended app.

Why make it impossible to use?

This app is impossible to use due to the difficulty of obtaining the access key. Even when I logged on from my hospital's site, it still said "access is denied from this institution". Stupid! So I deleted it and downloaded the Micromedex drug reference app which is excellent and immediately downloads and is useful. Why do you even need a ridiculous access key anyway? This app is not worth the trouble. It's a dead end. Don't bother!
