Product Description: Are you looking for a nursing home for someone you love? With every week that passes, the task of finding the right healthcare facility becomes more difficult. The health care system in the United States is in a profound state of crisis, and looks set to grow still worse.We can no longer rely on hospitals and community workers to recommend satisfactory institutions for the final years of our senior citizens. The Crisis in America's Nursing Homes - What are we Doing Wrong? takes an objective look at the situation in today's nursing homes, and gives pragmatic advice about how to make the best of it. If you're looking for information about nursing homes today, you should make The Crisis in America's Nursing Homes - What are we Doing Wrong? your first stop. The population of America is aging. Those of us who are facing retirement and may have to go to live in a nursing home within the next 15 or 20 years face a bleak future, unless the government and the people combine forces to change things for the better. As the general population of the United States ages, so does the population of healthcare workers. Why aren't young people joining the profession? Because it's badly paid, disrespected and fraught with work-related illness and injury. And all of this at a time when hospitals are discharging the seriously ill earlier than ever before, to the subacute wards of those very same nursing homes. Understaffing mounts and, in desperation, homes are hiring nurses' aides and other basic healthcare workers without even running criminal checks. The Crisis in America's Nursing Homes - What are we Doing Wrong? helps you to understand the very real strain that nurses and other healthcare professionalsare under - and how you can co-operate with them to make your loved one's care as good as it possibly can be.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
