Organizational and environmental factors associated with nursing home participation in managed care. (1/1708)

OBJECTIVE: To develop and test a model, based on resource dependence theory, that identifies the organizational and environmental characteristics associated with nursing home participation in managed care. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SETTING: Data for statistical analysis derived from a survey of Directors of Nursing in a sample of nursing homes in eight states (n = 308). These data were merged with data from the On-line Survey Certification and Reporting System, the Medicare Managed Care State/County Data File, and the 1995 Area Resource File. STUDY DESIGN: Since the dependent variable is dichotomous, the logistic procedure was used to fit the regression. The analysis was weighted using SUDAAN. FINDINGS: Participation in a provider network, higher proportions of resident care covered by Medicare, providing IV therapy, greater availability of RNs and physical therapists, and Medicare HMO market penetration are associated with a greater likelihood of having a managed care contract. CONCLUSION: As more Medicare recipients enroll in HMOs, nursing home involvement in managed care is likely to increase. Interorganizational linkages enhance the likelihood of managed care participation. Nursing homes interested in managed care should consider upgrading staffing and providing at least some subacute services.  (+info)

Prevalence and treatment of pain in older adults in nursing homes and other long-term care institutions: a systematic review. (2/1708)

BACKGROUND: The high prevalence of pain in older adults and its impact in this age group make it a public health issue, yet few studies of pain relief focus on older adults. Residents of long-term care facilities have more cognitive impairment than their community-living counterparts and may have difficulty reporting the presence and severity of pain. This systematic literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of pain, and the type and effectiveness of interventions that have been used to treat pain in residents of nursing homes. METHODS: Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE (from January 1966 to May 1997), HEALTH (from January 1975 to May 1997), CINAHL (from January 1982 to April 1997), AGELINE (from January 1978 to April 1997) and the Cochrane Library (1997, issue 1) and by performing a manual search of textbooks and reference lists. Studies of any methodological design were included if they estimated the prevalence of pain in nursing homes or other long-term care institutions or evaluated interventions for the treatment of pain in residents. Of the 14 eligible studies, 12 were noncomparative studies, 1 was a comparison study with nonrandomized contemporaneous controls, and 1 was a randomized controlled trial. Information on several factors was extracted from each study, including study design, number of patients and facilities, main outcomes measured, methods used to identify and detect pain, prevalence and types of pain, and interventions used to treat pain. The strength of the evidence provided by each study was also assessed. RESULTS: In the 6 studies with data from self-reporting or chart reviews, the prevalence of pain ranged from 49% to 83%. In the 5 studies with data on analgesic use only, the prevalence of pain ranged from 27% to 44%. Only 3 studies, with just 30 patients in total, evaluated an intervention for the treatment of pain. INTERPRETATION: Despite the high prevalence of pain in residents of nursing homes, there is a lack of studies evaluating interventions to relieve their pain. The authors make recommendations for future studies in this area.  (+info)

The economic value of informal caregiving. (3/1708)

This study explores the current market value of the care provided by unpaid family members and friends to ill and disabled adults. Using large, national data sets we estimate that the national economic value of informal caregiving was $196 billion in 1997. This figure dwarfs national spending for formal home health care ($32 billion) and nursing home care ($83 billion). Estimates for five states also are presented. This study broadens the issue of informal caregiving from the micro level, where individual caregivers attempt to cope with the stresses and responsibilities of caregiving, to the macro level of the health care system, which must find more effective ways to support family caregivers.  (+info)

Can we create a therapeutic relationship with nursing home residents in the later stages of Alzheimer's disease? (4/1708)

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)

An analysis of predictors of prescription drug costs among Medicaid nursing home residents in Texas. (5/1708)

A study was conducted to examine the relations among patient-specific demographic characteristics, previous prescription costs and utilization, and subsequent prescription costs for a population of 55,677 Medicaid nursing home residents in Texas. Patient-specific factors, based on previous patient utilization and cost levels, exist within the Texas Medicaid nursing home population that may serve as predictors of subsequent prescription costs. Although some statistically significant relations exist between prescription costs and patient demographic factors such as age, sex, and location, these demographic factors are of little or no practical value in prediction of prescription costs for subsequent periods of time.  (+info)

Nursing home characteristics and the development of pressure sores and disruptive behaviour. (6/1708)

OBJECTIVE: To determine how nursing home characteristics affect pressure sores and disruptive behaviour. METHOD: Residents (n = 5518, aged > or =60 years) were selected from 70 nursing homes in the National Health Care chain. Homes were classified as high- or low-risk based on incidence tertiles of pressure sores or disruptive behaviour (1989-90). Point-prevalence and cumulative incidence of pressure sores and disruptive behaviour were examined along with other functional and service variables. RESULTS: The overall incidence of pressure sores was 11.4% and the relative risk was 4.3 times greater in high- than low-risk homes; for disruptive behaviour, the incidence was 27% and the relative risk was 7.1 times greater in the high-risk group. At baseline, fewer subjects in homes with a high risk of pressure sores were white or in restraints, but more had received physician visits monthly and had had problems with transfers and eating. High-risk homes also had fewer beds and used less non-licensed nursing staff time. At follow-up (1987-90), 52% of homes in the low-risk group and 35% of those in the high-risk group had maintained their risk status; low-risk homes were more likely to have rehabilitation and maintenance activities. Having multiple clinical risk factors was associated with more pressure sores in high- (but not low-) risk homes, suggesting a care-burden threshold. By logistic regression, the best predictor of pressure sores was a home's prior (1987-88) incidence status. Interestingly, 67% of homes with a high risk of pressure sores were also high-risk for disruptive behaviour, while only 27% of homes with a low risk of pressure sores were high-risk for disruptive behaviour. A threshold effect was also observed between multiple risk factors and behaviour. More homes with a high risk of disruptive behaviour (68%) remained at risk over 4 years, and the best predictor of outcome was a home's previous morbidity level. CONCLUSION: Nursing-home characteristics may have a greater impact than clinical factors on pressure sores and disruptive behaviour in long-stay, institutionalized elders.  (+info)

Use of nursing home after stroke and dependence on stroke severity: a population-based analysis. (7/1708)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There are few population-based data available regarding nursing home use after stroke. This study clarifies the use of a nursing home after stroke, as well as its dependence on stroke severity, in a defined population. METHODS: All first stroke events among residents of Rochester, Minn, during 1987-1989 were ascertained, subtyped, and assigned Rankin disability scores (RS) before the event, at maximal deficit, and at specified intervals after stroke. Persons were followed from the date of stroke event to death, emigration from Rochester, or December 31, 1994, in complete community-based medical records and Minnesota Case Mix Review Program data tapes to determine nursing home residency before stroke and at 90 days and 1 year after stroke, proportion of survival days in a nursing home, and cumulative risk of admission to a nursing home. RESULTS: There were 251 cases of first cerebral infarction, 24 intracerebral hemorrhages, and 15 subarachnoid hemorrhages among residents of Rochester during 1987-1989. The maximal deficit RS was 1 or 2 for 62 (25%), RS 3 for 72 (29%), and RS 4 or 5 for 117 (47%) of the cerebral infarct patients. Among patients surviving to 90 days or 1 year after cerebral infarction, 25% were in nursing home at 90 days and 22% at 1 year, respectively. Within these maximal deficit RS categories, the percentages of follow-up time spent in a nursing home during the first post-cerebral infarction year are as follows: RS 1 to 2, 4%; RS 3, 10%; and RS 4 to 5, 54%. Multivariate logistic regression revealed that increasing age and RS 4 to 5 at maximal deficit were independent predictors (P<0.0001) of nursing home residency at 90 days and 1 year after stroke, whereas stroke type was not an independent predictor. At 1 year after cerebral infarction, the Kaplan-Meier estimates of proportion of people with at least 1 nursing home admission were 11% for RS 1 to 2, 22% for RS 3, and 68% for RS 4 to 5. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides unique population-based data regarding the short- and long-term use of a nursing home after stroke and its dependence on stroke severity. More than 50% of people with a severe cerebral infarction are in a nursing home 90 days and 1 year after the stroke, and by 1 year, nearly 70% will have required some nursing home stay. Age and stroke severity are independent predictors of nursing home residency after stroke.  (+info)

Small bowel bacterial overgrowth in subjects living in residential care homes. (8/1708)

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)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Quality and Costs in the Nursing-Home Market. AU - Ullmann, Steven G.. PY - 1983/3/17. Y1 - 1983/3/17. 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..

Researchers said nursing homes must help residents maintain clean teeth and dentures because germs found in dental plaque can make their way into the lungs and cause deadly pneumonia in elderly residents, according to a new study report.
Examining a 5% random sample of Medicare beneficiaries in 2006, we found that approximately 25% of NH residents with FTs required an ED visit or hospitalization, with 44% of hospitalizations and 24% of ED visits being potentially preventable for an ACS condition. Moreover, nearly 30% of NH residents with FTs were considered comatose or without discernible consciousness, representing 20060 NH residents with FTs in the US. We further found that 42% of NH residents with FTs were dependent in all ADLs, representing 31,700 NH residents who are unable to eat, bathe, toilet, transfer, or dress.. Previous studies suggest that there are little or no benefits to FTs in cognitively impaired patients, particularly among those with advanced dementia. Evidence suggests that FTs in cognitively impaired patients do not prevent aspiration pneumonia, improve function, prevent or improve pressure ulcers, reduce the risk of infection, meaningfully improve nutritional status, decrease weight loss, improve wound ...

TY - CONF. T1 - How do care home staff make sense of safety?. AU - Gartshore, Emily. AU - Waring, Justin. AU - Timmons, Stephen. PY - 2018/9/14. Y1 - 2018/9/14. N2 - Care homes are a setting that have been largely neglected by health researchers, particularly in the area of patient safety. In response to evidence of poor practice within this sector, approaches to safety have been translated from large NHS organisations that often take a bureaucratised approach to patient safety and applied to care homes with little consideration of whether these methods are appropriate. Drawing on qualitative data from 4 months of ethnographic fieldwork and 33 interviews with staff, this paper explores how care home staff make sense of safety, and how they construct notions of safety and safe practice. Safety practices in care homes are varied and largely centred on, and conditioned by the relatively low-skilled workforce. These organisations are highly differentiated, ranging from small family run businesses, ...

Objective. This study examines the experiences of the caregiver involved in the placement process of an older family member into a nursing home facility. Background. The caregiving journey is both complex and challenging. Family caregivers provide many time and labor intensive tasks that have been associated with increased stress and burden. Caregivers are often unable to maintain care at home and have to consider nursing home placement. The caregivers role within the nursing home placement process and their continued responsibility post-placement has not been well explored. Methods. This qualitative descriptive study utilized the Family Management Style Framework to understand how caregivers define, manage, 33 and perceive the consequences of the nursing home placement process. 10 primary family caregivers were interviewed shortly after placement and then again 3-months post-placement. The results of the study were organized to understand the contextual influences of each individual case and to

Objectives - To compare the prevalence of inappropriate prescribing before and after nursing home admission and to determine which patient and physician characteristics are associated with inappropriate prescribing in the nursing home setting.. Design - A pre/post retrospective, cohort study.. Setting - All licensed nursing homes in Ontario, Canada.. Participants - Nineteen thousand nine hundred eleven individuals aged 66 and older, newly admitted to nursing homes in Ontario between April 1, 1997, and March 31, 1999.. Measurements - For each patient in the cohort, a subset of the Beers criteria was used to characterize and compare the prevalence of inappropriate prescribing (as indicated by the prescription of one of 49 inappropriate drugs) before and after nursing home admission. A logistic regression model was used to study the association between inappropriate prescribing and patient and physician characteristics.. Results - The proportion of patients receiving a prescription for at least one ...

In this exploratory study, we profile variations in home leaving, home returning, and home staying behaviour among four ethnocultural groups in Canada - British, Chinese, Indian, and South European. Data collected in a 1999-2000 survey of 1,907 young adults (ages 19-35) residing in the Vancouver area are used. Our principal foci are ethnocultural and gendered aspects of home leaving trajectories, specifically: ages at home leaving and returning, and reasons for home leaving, home returning and home staying. Special attention is paid to returners/boomerangers, given an increasing overall trend in home returning in Canada. We find that: (a) both ethnocultural origin and gender are important determinants of home leaving trajectory, (b) there is a distinct (but far from tidy) difference between European-origin and Asian-origin groups in home leaving trajectory, (c) British-Canadians leave home at the youngest ages and Indo-Canadians at the oldest ages, (d) the main reason for home leaving is ...

As COVID-19 cases start to rise again due to the highly contagious Delta variant, nursing homes are considering requiring staff members to be vaccinated. Only 59 percent of nursing home staff are partially or fully vaccinated nationwide, and the percentages are much lower in some states.. While 81 percent of nursing home residents are fully vaccinated, the numbers are much lower for staff. Louisiana and Florida have the lowest percentages of vaccinated staff at 43.17 percent and 44.22 percent vaccinated, respectively. Moreover, staff with the closest contact with residents are the least likely to be vaccinated, according to new research. All this could leave elderly vulnerable to infection, even if they are vaccinated themselves. While the vaccines are very effective, breakthrough infections are possible. And due to weakened immune systems, some elderly individuals may not respond fully to the vaccine. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, more than 133,000 nursing home ...

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 ...

Care homes for older people with residents having mental capacity to consent were invited to participate. Data were collected using semi-structured one-to-one interviews with care home residents, care home managers and oral health care leads. Interviews were audio recorded, transcribed and analysed using a thematic approach to data. Analysis was assisted by NVivo 10 software. Data collection was completed when no new themes emerged. Results: This analysis presents findings from 26 interviews with residents, across five care homes. Going into care was associated with a loss of identity. ...
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 ...

Median survival in NH was 2.2 years (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.9-2.4). Yearly mortality rate throughout the three-year observation period was 31.8%. Mortality was associated with higher age and comorbidity at BL, and more severe dementia, higher ADL-dependency, less severe psychotic symptoms, and a lower BMI throughout the study period. Of the organizational variables, living on a ward with more residents resulted in a higher risk of mortality.. Conclusion. In conclusion, the NH mortality rate remained stable throughout the three-year study period with about one third of the residents deceasing each year. Individual resident characteristics appeared to be more important than organizational variables for predicting mortality risk. The finding of an association between ward size and mortality risk deserves further investigation in future studies.. OPEN ACCESS ...

Health-related quality of life was prospectively recorded using the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire.

When you move a loved one to a nursing home, you expect the nursing home will treat them with the respect and professionalism they deserve. However, nursing home abuse and neglect are problems plaguing facilities across the country. Do you know what to do if you suspect abuse in a nursing home? Taking the proper steps can help keep your family members safe and the nursing home from harming someone else. What to Do If You suspect Abuse in a Nursing Home At Gerling Law, our nursing home attorneys have years of experience with suspected abuse and neglect in nursing homes. Here are the steps you need to take when you suspect something is going on: Remain calm. Its easy to lash out and lose your temper. However, remaining calm is vital as you need to keep a level head when attempting to resolve this situation.

May 2, 2016 - Six new quality measures have been added to the Nursing Home Compare website and three are the first to be based on Medicare-claims data from hospitals, rather than data self-reported by nursing homes. With these updates, it now reports information on 24 quality measures for 15,655 nursing home providers.
The data shows that primary care trusts (PCTs) do not accord sufficient priority to care home residents when planning and ensuring the delivery of local healthcare services. This has resulted in considerable variation in the extent to which their healthcare needs are being met. The BGS report has been published at the same time as the CQC report to complement its findings.. There are 376,250 older people living in 10,331 care homes in England[1] and the majority are frail with multiple needs and require help with self-care. Over 40% suffer from dementia.[2] The BGS report Failing the Frail: A Chaotic Approach to Commissioning Healthcare Services for Care Homes based on its analysis of the CQC data focuses on the provision of NHS healthcare support to care homes and confirms many of the findings of the BGSs inquiry Quest for Quality published last year. This described the unmet need, unacceptable variation and often poor quality of care provided by the NHS to older people resident in care ...
Aims and objectives. The aim of this paper was to explore carers and nurses appraisals concerning if and when nursing home placement for frail older people awaiting placement was needed and to illuminate ethical issues involved in decisions regarding nursing home placement.. Background. Requesting nursing home placement can be a complicated decision for carers, causing feelings of failure, anxiety and guilt. After the necessity of nursing home care is determined, the names of the older people are put on waiting lists. While waiting, home health care provides support services. Even with this care, many of the older people and their carers face difficult life situations.. Design. This is a descriptive and comparative cross-sectional study using qualitative methods.. Methods. The convenience sample (n = 36) comprised 11 carers of older people on a nursing home placement waiting list in Norway and 11 nurses caring for these older people. Every one willingly participated in interviews that were ...

Long-stay home care clients who receive rehabilitation have improved outcomes and lower utilization of costly health services, say authors of an article published online in Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The findings suggest that investment in physical therapy and occupational therapy services for relatively short periods may provide savings to the health care system over the longer term, they add. This observational study conducted in home care programs in Ontario, Canada, included 99,764 home care clients with musculoskeletal disorders who received a baseline screening using the Resident Assessment Instrument for Home Care, 1 follow-up assessment, and had discharge or death records between 2003 and 2008.. The effects of physical therapy and occupational therapy services on transitions in function state, discharge from home care with service plans complete, institutionalization, and death were assessed using multistate Markov models.. Home care clients with deficiencies in ...
Infections are common in nursing home (NH) residents with advanced dementia but are often managed inappropriately. Antimicrobials are extensively prescribed, but frequently with insufficient evidence to support a bacterial infection, promoting the emergence of multidrug-resistant organisms. Moreover, the benefits of antimicrobials remain unclear in these seriously ill residents for whom comfort is often the goal of care. Prior NH infection management interventions evaluated in randomized clinical trials (RCTs) did not consider patient preferences and lack evidence to support their effectiveness in real-world practice. This report presents the rationale and methodology of TRAIN-AD (Trial to reduce antimicrobial use in nursing home residents with Alzheimers disease and other dementias), a parallel group, cluster RCT evaluating a multicomponent intervention to improve infection management for suspected urinary tract infections (UTIs) and lower respiratory tract infections (LRIs) among NH residents with
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. ...
Credit: David Orenstein/Brown UniversitySeemingly, we are closing the gap in terms of minority access to nursing home beds, but I dont think that is something to celebrate, Feng said. They are really the last resort. Most elders would rather stay in their homes, or some place like home, but not a nursing home unless they have to.. The new analysis shows that between 1999 and 2008 the nations nursing home population shrank by 6.1 percent to just over 1.2 million people. In that time period the number of whites in nursing homes decreased by 10.2 percent nationwide, while the number of blacks rose 10.8 percent, the number of Hispanics rose by 54.9 percent and the number of Asians rose by 54.1 percent. The study also looked at nursing home population changes in the top 10 metropolitan areas for each minority.. Prior research has shown that the nursing homes in predominately minority areas are often of lower quality and are more likely to close, while assisted living facilities are more likely ...

Due to demographic shifts in American society, with a large percentage of the population now over the age of 65, the issue of addressing nursing home abuse has become more important than ever. Many aging Americans should expect to continue living for many more years. Thus, nursing home populations will likely grow substantially in the near future.. Unfortunately, a rising nursing home population is typically associated with an increase in nursing home abuse and negligence cases. If you suspect an elderly loved one has been the victim of New York nursing home abuse, you should contact a nursing home negligence attorney to determine your loved ones rights.. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services and related governmental agencies assist in overseeing the services nursing homes provide. Federal and state governments have established uniform standards for nursing homes in an attempt to protect the elderly. Nursing homes that fail to meet these standards may be subject to fines, citations, and ...

Assisted living facilities provide social opportunities, oversight, and healthcare to persons who are about 65 years of age or older. Assisted living facilities usually provide chances for recreational activity, care supervision, and aid with daily activities. Under certain circumstances, facilities may provide aging in place, hospice, or skilled nursing care. In Massachusetts, the annual median cost for an assisted living facility is around $67,680 . Massachusetts has specific standards related to this type of facility. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs regulates this type of facility. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to make sure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as assessment of allergies and dietary needs, assessment of residents current diagnoses and medical history, assessment of residents need for assistance in emergency situations, and assessment of the individuals needs and ...
Increasing numbers of nursing home residents are working-aged individuals between the ages of 18 and 64 years. Though there are several plausible explanations, it is unclear why working-aged adults are entering nursing homes in greater numbers. Recent data indicate that the prevalence of chronic disease and disability are increasing among working-aged adults. Combined, these trends may contribute to increased utilization of nursing home care. In addition to these factors, a lack of family and social supports may also contribute to increased use of nursing home care. One of the goals of this research is to determine the relationships between these variables and length of stay among working-aged nursing home residents. Further, increased nursing home use among this population is occurring within a post-Olmstead policy environment. According to the precedent set by the Supreme Court in 1999 in Olmstead v. L.C., individuals with disabilities are not to be indiscriminately placed in institutional ...

Dementia is a progressive disease that is ultimately fatal. The number of old people is increasing worldwide; the number of people suffering from dementia is also increasing worldwide. Advanced dementia is referred to as late-stage dementia and includes the severe and terminal stage of the disease. People with advanced dementia experience significant physical losses, such as the inability to communicate and perform activities of daily living. Due to communication difficulty, caregivers may not be able to understand their needs. People with advanced dementia are more likely to be placed in a long-term care facility and two third of those with dementia die in a nursing home. As such, caregivers in long-term care facilities must attend to the complexities and challenges related to individuals and their end-of-life care needs. End-of-life care issues for people with advanced dementia have not been addressed in long-term care facilities in Taiwan. This is three-year study. The purposes of the study ...

The low unemployment rate in the U.S. -- which fell to a 49 year-low in September and October -- is good news to many people, but perhaps not to residents of nursing homes. A Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) study found that quality of care in nursing homes improves during periods of recession and worsens when the economy is good.. The reason, according to the investigation, published in The Gerontologist, is likely linked to how the strength of the economy affects the ability of nursing homes to maintain adequate staffing levels and retain employees, researchers say.. The study found that when staffing is tight during low unemployment rates, nursing homes are more likely to suffer from symptoms of inadequate care. Nursing home care is highly labor intensive and mainly delivered by nurses and nurse aides. Most nursing home residents have cognitive dysfunction or physical impairment, and require 24/7 care and providing this care can be physically and mentally taxing, making it ...
In our population-based study, the total cost of stroke in 568 patients was almost $34 000 000 in the first 2 years. AF-associated stroke contributed disproportionately to this cost burden. Although AF-stroke comprised 31% of the cohort, it accounted for 40% of the overall costs and 45% of nursing-home costs, with a 2-fold increase in median total costs compared with stroke without AF, mainly driven by higher acute hospitalization and nursing-home resource use and costs in patients who survived ≥90 days. Although greater age and comorbidity may contribute to greater cost of stroke in patients with AF, we observed a similar pattern of higher AF-associated costs across all age categories. AF is a modifiable, readily detected risk factor before stroke onset and many AF-associated strokes are preventable with anticoagulation therapy. Potential savings may be made by decreasing stroke risk by identifying and treating patients with AF, combined with avoidance of the disproportionately large costs ...

Searches identified 4328 titles and abstracts after 856 duplicates were removed. 325 full-text papers were obtained and 23 studies included (nineteen intervention and 4 observational studies) from 7 countries.. A wide range of interventions and exposures were identified, but the lack of suitable ways of accurately assessing fluid intake and/ or dehydration, as well as paucity of randomisation and allocation concealment resulted in the efficacy of many strategies being unproven.. Two observational studies with low risk of bias conducted secondary analyses demonstrating that for-profit ownership in Canada was associated with higher rates of hospital admission for dehydration compared to not-for-profit homes, whilst in the United States (US) there was no difference. Studies at higher risk of bias reported lower rates of dehydration following implementation of the Resident Assessment Instrument (US), eating in a less-institutionalised setting (US, UK), eating with others (US) or use of high-contrast ...
CMS specifies that staff includes any individual employed by the facility, any individual who has an arrangement to provide services to the facility, and any individual volunteering for the facility. CMS specifically uses the example of hospice staff as those who may have an arrangement to provide services to the facility. Testing must be conducted according to current professional standards of practice such as the CDC Testing Guidelines for Nursing Homes and nursing homes have the flexibility to choose the type of testing, provided the chosen testing meets nationally-recognized standards and any response time recommendations specified by the secretary. Nursing homes must document all instances of testing, either in the residents record or in the staff personnel record.. Nursing homes must take action to prevent transmission upon identification of residents or staff who present with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or when COVID-19 has been diagnosed. Actions may include cohorting residents or ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Concordance of self-report and informant assessment of emotional well-being in nursing home residents with dementia. AU - Kolanowski, Ann. AU - Hoffman, Lesa. AU - Hofer, Scott M.. PY - 2007/1. Y1 - 2007/1. N2 - The emotional well-being of persons with dementia is an aspect of their quality of life. We examined the stability of informant-rated and self-reported emotion, and the influence of mental status and physical dependence on ratings; we modeled concordance between ratings at both the within- and between-person levels of analysis. We used multilevel modeling to examine data collected over 12 days from 31 nursing home residents. We found significant within-person variation in both informant-rated and self-reported emotion, such that between 40% and 60% of the overall variance in each occurred within persons. We found little correspondence between or within persons between ratings of the informants and residents, regardless of mental status. We recommend statistical techniques ...
