High impact information on Home Nursing

  • METHODS: We retrospectively identified an inception cohort of 2428 nursing home residents in Tennessee who were new users of tricyclic antidepressants (665 subjects), selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (612 subjects), or trazodone (304 subjects) or nonusers of antidepressants (847 subjects) [11].
  • The increases in nursing home deaths were greatest between 1983 and 1984, when 33 states showed larger-than-expected increases when compared with a base period before implementation of PPS [12].
  • Vitamin D3 and calcium may decrease the incidence of hip and other peripheral fractures in nursing home residents [13].
  • Facility staff completed all assessments using the Minimum Data Set for Nursing Home Resident Assessment and Care Screening (MDS) [14].
  • OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate an approach that uses clinical features that can be determined in a standard patient visit to estimate the length of time before an individual patient with Alzheimer disease (AD) requires care equivalent to nursing home placement or dies [15].

Associations of Home Nursing with chemical compounds

  • PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS: All nursing home residents in 1993 and early 1994 in Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, and South Dakota. Serial MDS assessments of 77337 residents in more than 800 facilities, including 1228 residents in 48 facilities with SCUs [14].
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--We used logistic regression to determine the odds ratio (OR) for the initiation of antiparkinsonian therapy in patients using metoclopramide relative to nonusers, after adjusting for age, sex, race, nursing home residence, exposure to antipsychotic medication, and days hospitalized [29].
  • Our objective was to assess the adverse reaction rate in elderly nursing home patients receiving sequential amantadine and rimantadine for influenza A prophylaxis [30].
  • A high incidence of methicillin-resistant S aureus infection or colonization is a clinical feature of nursing home patients [31].
  • Many nursing home patients taking digoxin do not need it [32].

Gene context of Home Nursing

  • CONCLUSION: Detectable serum TNF levels in elderly nursing home patients may be a predictor of early mortality [33].
  • MEASUREMENTS: The dependent variables were hours of personal assistance in the month before the AHEAD survey (Waves 1 and 2), number of days in month before the survey in which the person did not get out of bed (Waves 1 and 2), and residence in a nursing home at Wave 2 [34].
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The basal serum concentrations of TNF and interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1) were measured in 129 elderly nursing home patients (mean age of 89 years), and survival in the cohort was monitored over a 13-month period [33].
  • Two waves of the Asset and Health Dynamics Among the Oldest Old (AHEAD) database were used to test the effect of residual difficulty on hours of personal assistance and bed days at Wave 1 on hours of personal assistance, bed days, and nursing home placement at Waves 1 and 2 [34].
  • Nursing home practitioners should consider MRSA when applying empiric treatment to serious infections [35].
