Lippincott Procedural Manual


Lippincott procedures

Lippincott America have provided procedures for clinical staff for decades. The South Island Directors of Nursing have approved the use of online Lippincott procedures across the South Island Health System.


  • The procedures contain American terminology which we will come to terms with in time.
  • Some procedures contain references to equipment and medications unavailable in New Zealand; this will be rectified.
  • In the interim continue to use your clinical judgement and current service direction when using the Lippincott procedures.
  • Ensure you read all critical notes at the top of the Lippincott procedure which will direct you accordingly.
  • Remember Lippincott is a ‘living’ document.If you find procedure that could possibly pose a safety issue or are not current best practice,discuss this with your line manager, CNE or CNS in your area, for clarification.

Logging in difficulties

Firstly, to access healthLearn you need a healthLearn Account.

Click the button on the front page to create your own account. You must have an Employee number and Organisational work email address, as personal email addresses will not be accepted. Staff from most Canterbury and West Coast Organisations can create their own account.

If you work for one of Canterbury Partnership Group Organisations who do not have an organisational email address, you need to contact your own Educator directly. They will collate the required information and then arrange to have your account created. You will recieve email notification from them when your account has been created. 


Check to make sure that you are using your healthLearn account to sign in and not your organisational login information.

With most organisations, healthLearn is a totally seperate system, and has a seperate username and password. If you change your password in your organisational computer network, it will not change or update your healthLearn account


Check your keyboard

Make sure you do not have your Caps Lock turned on
