"This is the third, thoroughly revised and updated edition of the book formerly entitled Geriatric Nursing Protocols for Best Practice. The protocols address key clinical conditions and circumstances likely to be encountered by a hospital nurse caring for older adults.

"This third edition includes 17 revised and updated chapters and more than 15 new topics including critical care, diabetes, hydration, oral health care, palliative care, and substance abuse.

Acute care for elders : a model for interdisciplinary care by Michael L Malone( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acute Care for Elders (ACE) is a model of care designed to improve functional outcomes and to improve the processes for the care of older patients. This model includes: an environment of care designed to promote improved function for older patients; an interdisciplinary team that works together to identify/address the vulnerabilities of the older patients; nursing care plans for prevention of disability; early planning to help prepare the patient to return home; and a review of medical care to prevent iatrogenic illness. Acute Care for Elders: A Model for Interdisciplinary Care is an essential new resource aimed at assisting providers in developing and sustaining an ACE program. The interdisciplinary approach provides an introduction to the key vulnerabilities of older adults and defines the lessons learned from the Acute Care for Elders model. Expertly written chapters describe critical aspects of ACE: the interdisciplinary approach and the focus on function. The fundamental principles of ACE described in this book will further assist hospital leaders to develop, implement, sustain and disseminate the Acute Care for Elders model of care. Acute Care for Elders: A Model for Interdisciplinary Care is of great value to geriatricians, hospitalists, advance practice nurses, social workers and all others who provide high quality care to older patients
Geriatrics models of care : bringing "best practice" to an aging America by Michael L Malone( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes geriatrics practice models that are used to guide the care of older adults, allowing seniors to remain at home, prevent functional disability, and preserve their quality of life. The models include specific interventions which are performed by health care teams to address the needs of older persons and their caregivers. These models respect patient values, consider patient safety, and appreciate psychosocial needs as well. The book is presented to readers based on the setting of the care of the older individual: the hospital, the outpatient setting, the transition from one site of care to the next, and the emergency department. The editors further present additional models which address the needs of vulnerable populations, and community- based models of care. Finally, this book describes several promising and innovative programs which represent best practice strategies for older persons. Geriatric Models of Care is an excellent resource for health care leaders who must implement these programs to address the needs of the patients in their communities

The effects of life review through writing on depressive symptoms and life satisfaction in older adults by Tracy Chippendale( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this randomized control study was to determine the effects of a protocol of life review through writing, the Share your Life Story Workshop, on depressive symptoms and life satisfaction in older adults residing in senior residences. Forty-seven participants were recruited from four senior residences in New York City of which 45 completed the final post-test assessments and questionnaires. The mean age of participants was 84 and on average, participants required assistance with three instrumental activities of daily living (e.g. shopping, housekeeping). Although the majority of the sample were Caucasian (75.6%), other ethnicities were represented including Hispanic, Asian and African American participants. Individuals were randomized to the treatment group or a wait list control group within each senior residence using randomization with forced equal sample size. The once weekly workshop that met for eight weeks at each of the four sites consisted of writing tips, writing prompts related to each decade of life and timed writing exercises. Participants were encouraged to write between workshop sessions and had the opportunity to read their work aloud after which they were offered positive feedback from the group leader and other workshop participants. Both the geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and Life Satisfaction Index-Version A (LSI-A) were used as outcome measures. The treatment group participants showed significantly less depressive signs on the GDS compared to the control group (p=.02) on the independent samples t-test, and these results were confirmed when examined by the RMANOVA and ANCOVA measures. There was no statistically significant difference between the treatment and control groups with regard to change in life satisfaction. The results of this study support the use of life review through writing specifically, the Share your Life Story Workshop as a therapeutic intervention to improve depressive symptoms in older adults
Hospital nurses' perceptions of the geriatric care environment by Marie Boltz( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this hospital-based, retrospective, cross-sectional, non-experimental study was to increase understanding of the effects of nursing-related hospital factors on select nurse and patient outcome measures related to care of hospitalized older adults. The study used linear mixed effects modeling in a sample of 10,078 direct care registered nurses from 88 acute care hospitals to test the relationship between nurse perceptions of the geriatric nursing practice environment and two outcomes, perceptions of aging sensitive care delivery and geriatric nursing knowledge. Findings indicated that, controlling for nurse and hospital characteristics, a positive geriatric nursing practice environment was associated with aging sensitive care delivery (F (4, 7908) = 4791.54, p <.0001), but not geriatric nursing knowledge
A comparison of nurse sensitive outcomes of an Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) unit and a regular inpatient medical unit by Sharon Stahl Wexler( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ACE unit is one model of care that has strong evidence that it is possible to prevent the hazards of hospitalization and promote positive outcomes by redesigning the hospital unit and care delivery.

Post-Hospital Medication Reconciliation in Older Chinese-American Home Care Patients by Sophia Huey-Lan Hu( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-five percent of older Chinese-Americans who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria enrolled in the study (n=82). More than 80% of them had limited English capability and low education levels. About 24% of study participants had at least one PIM at hospital discharge. Nearly 67% of them had at least one MD at home care admission. Study participants who had PIM were more likely to experience MD (r=.217, p=.05). Older Chinese-Americans with more medications prescribed at hospital discharge were more likely to have at least one PIM (r=.444, p=.00) and have a higher number of PIM (r=.313, p=.004). With more medications prescribed at hospital discharge, they were more likely to have less MD (r=-.212, p=.018), but a positive association (r=.311, p=.005) was found between the number of medications documented at home care admission and MDs. Patient age and length of hospital stay was also positively associated with PIM (r=.29, p=.038 and r=.287, p=.01, respectively). Patients age 81 and older were almost 5 times (OR=4.59, 95% CI: 1.30-16.19) more likely than patients age 80 and younger to have PIMs at hospital discharge. Patients who took 8 medications and more at hospital discharge or had 6 days or longer hospital stay were about 4 times (OR=3.92, 95% CI: 1.08-14.22; OR=4.16, 95% CI: 1.09-15.88, respectively) more likely than patients who took less medication and shorter hospital stay to have PIMs at hospital discharge. Patients with 10 and higher medications identified at home care admission were almost 3 times (OR=2.57, 95% CI: 1.00-6.61) more likely than patients with less medications to have MDs
