Treatment of out-of-hospital status epilepticus with diazepam rectal gel. (1/96)

Intravenous access cannot always be promptly obtained when treating status epilepticus outside the hospital. We compared the efficacy and safety of diazepam rectal gel to IV lorazepam in our long-term care facility for adults with developmental disabilities. Diazepam rectal gel was given more quickly and reliably, reducing total seizure time, potential neuronal injury and other complications. A treatment protocol for treating status epilepticus with diazepam rectal gel is given.  (+info)

Brief training to promote the use of less intrusive prompts by nursing assistants in a dementia care unit. (2/96)

We evaluated the efficacy of a brief staff-training procedure to increase the use of graduated prompting by 2 certified nursing assistants (CNAs) while they helped to dress 3 persons with dementia in a seven-bed dementia care unit. The multiple baseline design across participants showed that CNAs dressed residents with minimal resident involvement during baseline observations. Following brief in-service training, CNAs provided graduated prompts and praise appropriately, suggesting that CNAs can promote active involvement in personal care routines by older adults with dementia.  (+info)

The TLC model of palliative care in the elderly: preliminary application in the assisted living setting. (3/96)

Substantial shortfalls in the quality of palliative care of the elderly can be attributed to 5 fundamental flaws in the way end-of-life care is currently delivered. First, palliative care is viewed as a terminal event rather than a longitudinal process, resulting in a reactive approach and unnecessary preterminal distress in elderly patients suffering from chronic, slowly progressive illnesses. Second, palliative care is defined in terms of a false dichotomy between symptomatic and disease-focused treatment, which distracts attention from the proper focus of healing illness. Third, the decision about whether the focus of care should be palliative is not negotiated among patients, family members, and providers. Fourth, patient autonomy in making treatment choices is accorded undue prominence relative to more salient patient choices, such as coming to terms with their place in the trajectory of chronic illness. Fifth, palliative care is a parallel system rather than an integrated primary care process. A new theoretical framework--the TLC model--addresses these flaws in the provision of palliative care for elderly persons. In this model, optimal palliative care is envisioned as timely and team oriented, longitudinal, collaborative and comprehensive. The model is informed by the chronic illness care, shared decision making, and comprehensive geriatric assessment research literature, as well as previous palliative care research. Preliminary results of an intervention for elderly assisted living residents based on the TLC model support its promise as a framework for optimizing palliative care of elders.  (+info)

An in-service evaluation of hip protector use in residential homes. (4/96)

BACKGROUND: The establishment of a hip protector service has allowed us to study eligibility, acceptability and compliance with use, reasons for non-use, and the effect of dementia, confusion, incontinence and risk of falling. METHODS: All residents in all residential homes in Poole were assessed at baseline. All eligible residents were offered 1 week's trial of protectors and those who wished to continue were given a set of protectors. Compliance was assessed at 3, 6 and 12 months. Percentages shown for compliance exclude those who died, were transferred, had lost data or in whom follow-up was not yet completed. RESULTS: Over 18 months, 873 residents from 47 homes were identified (mean age 88 years, female:male 4.5:1). Of these, 745 were considered eligible to wear protectors (86%) and 535 agreed to wear them after 1 week (72%). Compliance over 12 months was 78%. Most wearers wore protectors every day. At 3 months, 83% of demented compared to 73% of not demented residents (P = 0.023), 86% of always confused, 77% of sometimes confused and 72% of never confused (P < 0.009) and 82% of incontinent compared to 73% of continent residents (P = 0.024) were wearing hip protectors. There was a positive linear trend between the risk of falling and compliance (P = 0.048). CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that there is a 48% chance of a resident wearing the protectors after 1 year. The higher compliance among those with dementia, confusion, incontinence and at high risk of falling supports the concept that hip protectors are worn by those at greatest risk of fracture.  (+info)

Transmission of hepatitis B virus among persons undergoing blood glucose monitoring in long-term-care facilities--Mississippi, North Carolina, and Los Angeles County, California, 2003-2004. (5/96)

Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels is an important component of routine diabetes care. Capillary blood is typically sampled with the use of a fingerstick device and tested with a portable glucometer. Because of outbreaks of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections associated with glucose monitoring, CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended since 1990 that fingerstick devices be restricted to individual use. This report describes three recent outbreaks of HBV infection among residents in long-term-care (LTC) facilities that were attributed to shared devices and other breaks in infection-control practices related to blood glucose monitoring. Findings from these investigations and previous reports suggest that recommendations concerning standard precautions and the reuse of fingerstick devices have not been adhered to or enforced consistently in LTC settings. The findings underscore the need for education, training, adherence to standard precautions, and specific infection-control recommendations targeting diabetes-care procedures in LTC settings.  (+info)

Medicare expenditures for residents in assisted living: data from a national study. (6/96)

OBJECTIVE: To provide preliminary data on Medicare expenditures for assisted living facility (ALF) residents and to investigate whether ALF characteristics were related to Medicare expenditures for ALF residents. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Data from the National Study of Assisted Living for the Frail Elderly conducted in 1998-1999. This analysis was restricted to the 40 percent of ALFs in that sample that adhered to the assisted living (AL) philosophy by offering more than minimal levels of services and privacy. This study involved the approximately 1,200 residents who remained in an ALF from baseline to follow-up data collection. Six months of postbaseline Medicare claims were acquired for 545 of these residents, who did not differ significantly from the larger sample. DATA COLLECTION: Baseline individual and facility data were collected in personal interviews with residents and a combination of personal and telephone interviews with facility staff. Medicare claims data were acquired from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional analyses using logistic and ordinary least squares regression techniques were used to determine the relationships among individual and facility characteristics and Medicare utilization and expenditures. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: On an annualized basis, AL residents incurred Medicare costs of approximately US dollars 4,800. Just less than 15 percent of AL residents accounted for over 75 percent of total Medicare costs. Both the likelihood of utilizing Medicare-covered services and the intensity of service use were largely unaffected by the characteristics of the ALF in which residents lived. Utilization was largely a function of individual characteristics. The only exception to this general finding was that those individuals who utilized services and resided in smaller ALFs had significantly lower average expenditures than did individuals in larger ALFs. CONCLUSIONS: These preliminary data imply that both the level and distribution of Medicare expenditures among ALF residents were similar to those among the general community-dwelling Medicare beneficiary population. No significant relationships were observed between ALF characteristics and Medicare expenditures, except the effect of facility size. This result may imply that how the AL industry eventually defines itself in terms of services and amenities, other than size, may have little impact on Medicare expenditures for ALF residents. However, this is a single, initial study, so caution must be exercised when considering the implications of these results.  (+info)

Functional fitness: maintaining or improving function for elders with chronic diseases. (7/96)

OBJECTIVE: This study's objective was to prove or disprove four hypotheses, three addressing physical function and a subjective measure of self-perceived well-being from participating in an elder functional fitness program. METHODS: Participants included 17 chronically ill residents from an assisted-living center in Maine. Measures on mobility, metabolic equivalent estimation (MET) levels, resting heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, muscular strength, flexibility, and body weight were conducted at three intervals-baseline, 6 months, and 1 year. SAS software was used for analysis of means and paired t test. RESULTS: Increases in or maintenance of function proved significant. The subjective hypothesis also proved significant. DISCUSSION: Research on elder exercise focuses on one or two components, rather than the benefits of a thorough fitness program. This study illustrated improvements in physical function and well-being from participating in a comprehensive elder fitness program.  (+info)

Successful aging in health care institutions. (8/96)

OBJECTIVES: This article explores factors associated with positive self-perceived health among Canadian seniors who live in health care institutions. DATA SOURCE: Cross-sectional and longitudinal data are from the institutional and household files of the National Population Health Survey (NPHS). ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES: Prevalence rates of positive self-perceived health were estimated using 1996/97 cross-sectional data from the NPHS. Logistic regression models were used to identify factors associated with positive self-perceived health. With four cycles of longitudinal data, the relationship between positive self-perceived health and mortality was explored using survival analysis. MAIN RESULTS: In 1996/97, 43% of the institutional population aged 65 or older reported positive self-perceived health. Institutional residents with positive self-perceived health had a lower risk of mortality. The odds of positive self-perceived health were higher for those who were usually free of pain and were independent. Participation in social and recreational activities and having a close relationship with at least one staff member of the institution were associated with positive self-perceived health.  (+info)

When the time comes to seek help with everyday living, there is an expanding array of care options to choose from. Everyones first choice is to remain at home, something a number of states are encouraging with increased Medicaid coverage. But more and more people are opting for assisted living facilities -- places that provide room and board, and some services, especially health care. Currently one million Americans live in assisted living facilities, and that number is expected to rise quickly. And according to Eric Carlson, an attorney with the National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC) and co-author of The Baby Boomers Guide to Nursing Home Care, many assisted living facilities are redesigning themselves so that elderly residents can stay longer, even if their health needs increase.. When choosing a facility, the most important first step is to establish the level of care you want and make sure the facility can provide it, Carlson tells Harry Margolis in a recent ElderLaw Radio interview. ...

A previous article explained Medicaid and skilled nursing care. However, what happens if a person (usually elderly) needs help, but doesnt need a nurse? These people may be unable to take care of themselves at home, but would not meet the medical test to qualify for skilled nursing care or Medicaid. In North Carolina, if a person can no longer take care of themselves at home, but are not sick enough to require nursing care, they could be eligible for care at an assisted living facility.. Assisted living facilities offer care to people who are unable to perform some of the activities of daily living. Some people choose to live in an assisted living facility for comfort, convenience or companionship, while other people need to go to an assisted living facility because they cant get adequate care at home. Some assisted living facilities also have special memory-care units that take care of people living with Alzheimers or other forms of dementia.. While the cost of an assisted living facility ...

The California Public Employees Retirement System has announced plans to raise long term care insurance rates by 85% in 2015. Not all employees purchase the optional long term care insurance in their benefits package. But those who do will see their premiums nearly double. John Hancock raised rates by 40% and CNA Financial increased rates by 45%.. Long Term Care Insurance helps cover costs associated with nursing home assistance or assisted living. Most everyone knows someone who has been in a nursing home or in an assisted living facility. Costs are rising in both. It makes some wonder if the LTC industry will eventually be an insurance product that is only available to the very wealthy. At least with life insurance almost everyone can afford a cheap term life insurance policy. That is, until you get into the retirement years when all life insurance is pricey. But long term care will eventually be a product that ceases to exist or becomes known as the rich mans insurance plan. And you cannot ...

On October 12, 2010, the North Carolina Division of Public Health (NCDPH) and the Wayne County Health Department were notified by a local hospital of four residents of a single assisted-living facility with suspected acute HBV infection. NCDPH requested HBV testing of all persons who had resided in the facility during January 1--October 13, 2010, and defined an outbreak-associated case as either 1) positive hepatitis B surface antigen and core immunoglobulin M (IgM) results or 2) clinical evidence of acute hepatitis (jaundice or serum aminotransferase levels twice the upper limit of normal) with onset ≥6 weeks after admission to the facility. Records were reviewed for potential health-care--associated exposures and HBV-related risk factors. Infection control practices were assessed through observations and ...

Hundreds, possibly thousands, of people in Florida could now be carrying the TB strain, which so far has claimed 13 lives and been confirmed to have infected 99 people, including six children, according to the Post-the worst in America in 20 years. Its origins go back to a 2008 TB outbreak in a Jacksonville assisted-living facility that killed two people. To stop that strain, the CDC sent local health officials $275,000 to hire extra staff. But when the money ran out, the staff was cut, and containment of the disease was halted.. The problem is a scarcity of resources, Duval (Jacksonville) County Health Director Dr. Bob Harmon told the Post. Harmons department had 946 workers and $61 million in the kitty during the 2008 outbreak, but now were down to 700 staff and revenue is down to $46 million, he said. It has affected most areas of the organization. (Likewise, state funding for AG Holley had dwindled over the years, so that by the time its closure was on the table, the 500-bed facility ...
