Ratings and Reviews
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.
Optimize for iPhone 5 please!
Most of the other reviewers are slow- the directions to authenticate the app are extremely quick and easy, I was up and running in less than 5 minutes with full access. The app is easy to use and has all kinds of useful info- faster than going on a pc at work too! But it does need to be optimized for my iPhone 5 and the retina display- kind of looks crappy on my phone right now...
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!
