Can we create a therapeutic relationship with nursing home residents in the later stages of Alzheimer's disease? (1/747)

1. Despite their entrance into advanced illness, the majority (83%) of participants in the study displayed evidence of having begun a therapeutic relationship with their assigned advanced practice nurse. 2. With one exception, those participants who did not evidence development of the relationship had severely limited speech, perseverative speech, or did not speak at all. 3. It is time to challenge the assumption that individuals in the middle and later stages of Alzheimer's disease are not good candidates for developing a therapeutic relationship.  (+info)

Changes in behavioural characteristics of elderly populations of local authority homes and long-stay hospital wards, 1976-7. (2/747)

Behavioural characteristics of the elderly populations of seven local authority residential homes and three long-stay hospital wards were assessed in 1976 and 1977 with the Crichton Royal behavioural rating scale. In 1977 the levels of behavioural problems had increased in the residential homes, but declined in the hospital wards. Differences between the homes had decreased as the overall level of problems increased. The findings suggested that the additional burden of caring for increasing numbers of severely disabled elderly people was affecting the balance of institutional care, and a radical reappraisal of present patterns of care may be necessary to meet their future needs.  (+info)

Admission and adjustment of residents in homes for the elderly. (3/747)

This paper discusses the relationship between psychological variables, a brief cognitive measure and a behavioural rating scale, and the subsequent adjustment of a group of elderly people newly admitted to a social services home for the elderly. It shows that, in this sample, three groups can be identified: a fairly independent group of people who show no apparent deterioration in functioning during the first year of admission; a more dependent group who show loss of functioning during the same period; and a third group who show an immediate negative effect from admission, and who have a poor outcome. We comment on the lack of evidence in support of a general negative relocation effect, and on the value of the procedures used.  (+info)

Small bowel bacterial overgrowth in subjects living in residential care homes. (4/747)

OBJECTIVES: in elderly people, bacterial overgrowth of the small bowel may be occult. The significance of positive breath tests are uncertain: many fit elderly subjects with positive tests show no evidence of malabsorption. We assessed the prevalence and significance of bacterial overgrowth in the small bowel in a relatively unselected elderly population. METHODS: residents of seven elderly people's homes had a glucose hydrogen breath test. A medical history and anthropomorphic measurements were recorded. Volunteers with positive breath tests were given doxycycline. After 4 months all volunteers were reassessed. RESULTS: of 140 residents, 62 were tested. Nine (14.5%) had a positive breath test. There was no difference in anthropomorphic and bowel habit data between those with positive and those with negative breath tests. After 4 months of antibiotic treatment, volunteers with a positive breath test had increased weight and body mass index, while those with a negative test had decreased weight and body mass index. CONCLUSIONS: the percentage of volunteers with a positive breath test was much lower than in previous studies. This may be due to the relatively unselected nature of the volunteers. Treatment of bacterial overgrowth resulted in a small but significant improvement in anthropometric indices. The lack of association of positive breath tests with baseline anthropomorphic measurements or bowel habit highlights the occult nature of the bacterial overgrowth and questions its clinical importance.  (+info)

Nasal colonization by Staphylococcus aureus in active, independent, community seniors. (5/747)

OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the prevalence of nasal colonization with Staphylococcus aureus (SA) in active, independent community seniors and old people in a nursing home. DESIGN: cross-sectional brief questionnaire and screening culture of anterior nares specimens from 165 elders at a community centre and cross-sectional data from a recent survey in a nursing home. RESULTS: the prevalence of SA colonization in community seniors (27%) was similar to that in the nursing home (29%). The proportion of SA isolates that were methicillin-resistant was much lower in the community seniors (2.3%) than in the nursing-home residents (31%). There was less antibiotic resistance in those living at home. CONCLUSION: in community seniors the prevalence of SA colonization was similar to that in nursing-home residents, but the prevalence of methicillin-resistant SA was lower. Susceptibility patterns of antibiotics tested against the SA showed less resistance than isolates from nursing-home patients.  (+info)

Consequences of MRSA carriage in nursing home residents. (6/747)

A prospective cohort study with 1 year follow-up evaluated the relation between MRSA carriage and mortality, likelihood of hospitalization and functional status in residents of a nursing home for the elderly. Included were all 447 residents living in the home in early June 1994. From all patients, swabs were taken from nose, throat and perineum. Additional swabs (sputum, urine or wounds) were taken when indicated. The relative risk (RR) of dying within 6 months in MRSA carriers compared to non-carriers was 2.29 (95% CI = 1.04-5.04). This RR remained stable (1.57-2.40) after adjustment for co-variables using Mantel-Haenszel stratified analysis. After I year, the RR was reduced to 1.30 (95% CI = 0.65-2.58). Univariate survival analysis confirmed a difference in survival between carriers and non-carriers after 6 months (log-rank P = 0.04) and no difference after 1 year. Cox regression analysis resulted in a hazard ratio for dying within 6 months of 1.73 (95% CI = 0.72-4.17). No relation was found between carriage and either likelihood of hospitalization or indicators of functional status. These results are compatible with a possible relation between 6 months mortality and MRSA carriage in nursing home patients. It calls for a large scale, multicentre cohort study in order to either confirm or refute these findings.  (+info)

Socioeconomic differences in general practice consultation rates in patients aged 65 and over: prospective cohort study. (7/747)

OBJECTIVE: To examine socioeconomic differences in general practice consultation rates among patients aged 65 years and over. DESIGN: Secondary analysis of data from the fourth national survey of morbidity in general practice. SETTING: 60 general practices in England and Wales. SUBJECTS: 71 984 people aged 65 years and over. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Annual contact rates and home visiting rates with general practitioners and practice nurses. RESULTS: Social class differences in tact rates were greatest in 65-74 year olds, with rates 23% higher in patients from social class V than in class I (4.82 v 3.93 per person). In 75-84 year olds there was no clear association between social class and contact rates, and in people aged >/=85 years contact rates were highest in patients from class I. Home visiting rates were twice as high in patients from class V as in patients from class I (1.38 v 0.66 per person). Contact rates were 17% higher in people living in communal establishments and 8% higher in those living alone than in those living with others but not in a communal establishment. 66% of contacts with patients in communal establishments and 26% of those with patients living alone were in patients' homes compared with 18% with those living in standard accommodation. These differences persisted after adjustment in a generalised linear model. CONCLUSIONS: Elderly people show socioeconomic differences in consultation rates. The extra workload generated by elderly people living alone and in communal establishments suggests additional payments to general practitioners are needed.  (+info)

Cost-effectiveness of screening compared to case-finding approaches to tuberculosis in long-term care facilities for the elderly. (8/747)

BACKGROUND: To determine if the more interventionist approach of screening with the tuberculin test and chemoprophylaxis for high-risk positive reactors to control tuberculosis in long-term care facilities is cost-effective when compared to the case-finding and treatment approach. METHOD: A decision-analysis model was designed wherein systematic screening with the tuberculin skin test of all elderly patients newly admitted to facilities was compared to public health interventions restricted to investigation of cases and contacts with symptoms of tuberculosis after suspected exposure. Differences in life-years (LY), quality-adjusted life-years (QALY), cost per QALY and LY gained, annual cost per 1000 institutional patients were calculated in a health-care system perspective. RESULTS: In every situation analysed, screening and chemoprophylaxis were more effective. The cost per LY gained was within an acceptable range: $3437 per LY with a 0.6% nosocomial transmission rate and $7552 per LY when no nosocomial transmission was postulated. CONCLUSION: Screening plus chemoprophylaxis for high-risk reactors is more cost-effective than case-finding. This holds even when nosocomial transmission is assumed not to occur in facilities.  (+info)

Objectives: To determine the feasibility of using the activPAL3TM activity monitor, and, to describe the activity patterns of residential aged care residents. Design: Cross-sectional. Setting: Randomly selected aged care facilities within 100 km of the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Participants: Ambulatory, older (≥60 years) residential aged care adults without cognitive impairment. Measurements: Feasibility was assessed by consent rate, sleep/wear diary completion, and through interviews with staff/participants. Activity patterns (sitting/lying, standing, and stepping) were measured via activPAL3TM monitors worn continuously for seven days. Times spent in each activity were described and then compared across days of the week and hours of the day using linear mixed models. Results: Consent rate was 48% (n = 41). Activity patterns are described for the 31 participants (mean age 84.2 years) who provided at least one day of valid monitor data. In total, 14 (45%) completed the sleep/wear diary.
The use of hospitals by people living in residential care and the admission of people into residential care following a period in hospital is of interest to both policy analysts and service providers in the hospital and residential care sectors. This report updates a 2001-02 study on movement from hospital into residential care by people aged 65 and over. The use of hospitals by people already living in residential care is examined for the first time.. The analysis is based on multi-day hospital episodes ending in 2008-09 for people aged 65 and over on 1 July 2008. Movements between the two sectors were identified by linking national 2008-09 hospital and residential aged care service use data. To allow for the different age-sex profiles of the various movement groups, estimates have been age-sex standardised where appropriate.. ...
Information about the feasibility, barriers and facilitators of antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) has been scant. Exploring the prevailing perceptions and attitudes of key healthcare providers towards antibiotic prescribing behaviour, antibiotic resistance and AMS in the RACF setting is imperative to guide AMS interventions. Semi-structured interviews and focus groups were conducted with key RACF healthcare providers until saturation of themes occurred. Participants were recruited using purposive and snowball sampling. The framework approach was applied for data analysis. A total of 40 nurses, 15 general practitioners (GPs) and 6 pharmacists from 12 RACFs were recruited. Five major themes emerged; perceptions of current antibiotic prescribing behaviour, perceptions of antibiotic resistance, attitude towards and understanding of AMS, perceived barriers to and facilitators of AMS implementation, and feasible AMS interventions. A higher proportion of GPs and

Whether this care is provided at home or in a residential care facility will depend on the person, the carer, the family and their situation.. For people who live alone, the move to residential care may come sooner than for those who live with family. The timing may also be influenced by the presence of comorbidities. For many people, the move is rushed as it follows a crisis at home or an admission to hospital. This can increase the stress and distress for all involved.. Moving into residential care is a time of upheaval for the person living with dementia, their carers and family. Adjustment to residential care is more than a discrete event (10). It begins with thinking about and planning the move, and continues with the actual move into care and beyond as people settle in and adjust to change.. People going through this major transition do better when given holistic support.

N2 - To the Editor: In one of a series of articles appearing in the Journal concerning the nursing-home industry, Vladeck (Sept. 30 issue)1 indicates that there is an implicit assumption that a positive relation exists between the quality of resident care and facility costs. As Vladeck points out, however, there is no empirical evidence supporting this assumption. Nursing-home quality may be more a function of staff and administrative attitudes - characteristics that may be independent of facility costs. I recently conducted an extensive study of New York nursing homes and obtained interesting results concerning the relation between the quality of facilities..

Individualised psychosocial interventions are needed as alternatives to pharmacological sedation. Sedating psychotropic drugs, including antipsychotics and benzodiazepines, are commonly prescribed in residential aged care facilities (RACFs), despite extensive evidence of their limited efficacy for treating behavioural and psychological symptoms in older people and of their potential for eliciting serious adverse effects, including death.1 As a consequence, efforts are afoot in many countries to minimise the use of these medications in RACFs. In this issue of the MJA, Westbury and colleagues2 report findings from the RedUSe study of a multi-component intervention designed to reduce the prescribing of sedative medications in Australian RACFs. This uncontrolled investigation employed four complementary interventions in 150 nursing homes: psychotropic medication audits by a local champion nurse; RACF staff education sessions conducted by a pharmacist using benchmarked local data and incorporating ...

Almost 60 per cent of staff working in residential facilities for the elderly in Co Donegal have never had a flu vaccine, according to worrying new research.. A study carried out by Dr Louise Doherty, a Donegal-based consultant in public health medicine, found 57 per cent of staff, employed at 20 nursing homes in the county, have never been vaccinated against influenza.. Seven elderly residents died in a nursing home in Fahan, Co Donegal last year during a flu outbreak. Only 9 per cent of the staff there had the flu vaccine, but Dr Doherty stressed that the source of this outbreak, which affected 35 of the 46 residents, had never been identified. The average uptake of the vaccine among staff in the 20 residential facilities was 21 per cent in 2012/2013 - above the national average of just 15 per cent. Dr Dohertys research confirmed widespread concerns among healthcare staff about the safety of the vaccine, with over 60 per cent of respondents worried about the side effects.. One of the most ...

Staff need the confidence, communication skills and knowledge to initiate and handle relationships with GPs. Nurses in care homes should be offered joint training with their counterparts employed in the NHS, and the opportunity to obtain practice hours in order to validate specific training. GPs and health care professionals can play a valuable role in training and updating staff, and homes can also contribute to the training of doctors and nursing staff. Relatives in one study [22] thought that more information and support could be provided by health specialists already working with the home, including the community pharmacist and GP. GPs, nurses and relatives report a low level of confidence, knowledge and skills among care home staff, associated with a lack of access to training. This can affect their interactions with GPs, and GPs or relatives perceptions of care home staff, as well as being a barrier to partnership working. This can be exacerbated by high turnover among staff. [1] It has ...
The length of time care recipients spend accessing aged care is an important measure of demand for services and levels of service utilisation. Improving understanding of length of stay (LOS), particularly when compared across residential aged care and community-based care, can provide insight into service delivery planning at the whole-of-government level.. The AIHW has been funded by the Department of Health (DoH) to explore options for the development of a dynamic data display tool focusing on LOS in aged care.. Current LOS data published as a part of the annual Residential aged care and Home Care web reports are well suited towards adaptation to a dynamic data display environment. These data require minimal effort to translate to a SAS VA environment, and are low risk in terms of confidentiality and reliability. Based on this the following recommendations are made:. ...
Nursing homes are a blessing for those who need to ensure that loved ones are well cared for when they are unable to provide care at home. Sadly, they can also be a source of pain and suffering for patients and their loved ones in the case of abuse or neglect. We frequently hear news reports that are simply shocking; mistreatment of nursing home residents seems to be a growing epidemic in our country and abroad.. Nursing homes are also known by other names such as rest homes, assisted living homes, and skilled nursing units (SNU) to name a few. Regardless of the name, they serve a very useful purpose. They are homes for the elderly who are unable to live alone as they can no longer effectively perform normal daily activities without assistance.. Many people of varying ages are also residents of nursing homes due to some disability, whether mental or physical which prevents them from taking care of themselves at home. In many cases, family members are unable to provide the needed care at home so ...

National Nursing Home Week, established by the American Health Care Association, honors those who promote quality of care at nursing home facilities, including residents, family members, volunteers, community, and staff. A Nursing Home Survey conducted by CDC indicated that approximately 18,000 nursing homes in the United States provide care for 1.6 million residents; 1.4 million (90%) of these residents are aged ,65 years (1,2). By 2030, approximately 70 million U.S. residents will be aged ,65 years, and the number of persons residing in nursing homes will increase to 3 million persons (3). Infections, particularly respiratory and urinary tract infections, are a major cause of morbidity, mortality, and excess health-care costs among nursing home residents (4,5). To address the burden of infections among nursing homes residents, CDC launched a national educational campaign targeting clinicians who provide care to persons in long-term--care facilities. The campaign promotes 12 evidence-based ...
