The aim of this study was to compare severity and nursing workload of elderly patients with 60–69, 70–79, and e"80 years of age and to identify predictors of nursing workload in elderly patients. A cross sectional study was performed with a sample of 71 elderly patients admitted to three ICU in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil from October to. The Journal of Gerontological Nursing is a monthly, peer-reviewed journal publishing clinically relevant original articles on the practice of gerontological nursing across the continuum of care in.

Results: We identified 10 common functions in the discharge of elderly patients to primary health care. We found substantial variability in terms of timing, duration, and precision. Duration is a significant source of variability, primarily determined by the time of day the . Which factors affect the implementation of geriatric recommendations by primary care physicians?

  Nurses constitute an important group in identifying and preventing errors and risks in health care, but research on their perception of errors is scarce. This paper presents results of a representative study on health care errors, focusing on factors causing and influencing the occurrence of errors as perceived by nurses. The cross-sectional research design comprised descriptive and Cited by: 4.   Additional physical and mental components may seriously affect health-related quality of life in older patients with cancer. However, these factors are unfortunately often overlooked, according to study results published in Cancer. Almost two-thirds of the 15 million U.S. patients with cancer are considered to be a part of the geriatric population – at least 65 years or older.

Reduce nursing workload or to minimize the ne gative impact of a heavy nursing workload. Concepts and Models of Nursing Workload Nursing workload measures can be categorized in to four levels: (1.

Geriatric Nursing is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes original manuscripts, about all aspects of aging. Manuscripts on timely topics of interest to those individuals working directly or indirectly with older adults--wherever they are living-whether in the community, acute care situation, or.

Some factors have a direct impact on the patient-nurse relationship, while others have an effect on the work fluency or on the subjective perception of the nursing workload. Researchers then built a conceptual model, based on the interaction between both classifications and derived from the systems theory.

Determining a set of measurable and relevant factors affecting nursing workload in the acute care hospital setting: a cross-sectional study.

Geriatric Nursing is a comprehensive source for clinical information and management advice relating to the care of older adults.

The journal's peer-reviewed articles report the latest developments in the management of acute and chronic disorders and provide practical advice on care of older adults across.

Understanding and improving hospital discharge has assumed major importance since it represents an error-prone transition in care. One barrier to improvement is the lack of detailed understanding of how hospital discharge is organized, including its interdependencies and influential performance-shaping factors (PSFs).

A geriatric nurse shows an understanding of one of the major barriers to acquiring research-based geriatric nursing care when: a. recognizing the need to assess the need for sleep differently b. assuming the likelihood that the subjects will have hearing and vision problems.

Aims. The aim of this paper was to detect which non-direct patient care factors are related to nursing workload in acute hospital nursing care and to develop a conceptual model to describe the relationship between the non-direct patient care factors and nursing workload.
