PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum levels of retinoic acid (RA), an active form of vitamin A, in postmenopausal women with hip fractures from Zhengzhou, China. METHODS: This was a case-control study from the Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University. Serum samples were drawn from 375 postmenopausal women who were diagnosed as having hip fracture and 750 matched controls without fracture. Serum RA levels were evaluated as both a continuous variable and a categorical variable in quintiles...

BACKGROUND: The prospective association between protein intake and falls has been little studied. We assessed this association in a Spanish community-dwelling cohort. METHODS: We performed a prospective cohort study of 2464 men and women 60 years or older who were recruited in 2008-2010 and followed up through 2012. At baseline, the habitual protein intake was determined with a validated dietary history. At the end of follow-up, participants reported the number of falls experienced in the preceding year...

BACKGROUND: Antimicrobial stewardship programs have been established in hospitals, but less studied in long-term care facilities (LTCFs), a setting with unique challenges related to patient populations and available resources. This systematic review sought to provide a comprehensive assessment of antimicrobial stewardship interventions implemented in LTCFs, using meta-analysis to examine their impact on overall antimicrobial use. METHODS: Electronic searches of MEDLINE, Embase, and CINAHL (1990 to July 2018) identified any antimicrobial stewardship interventions in LTCFs, with no restriction on patient population, study design, or outcomes...

OBJECTIVES: To comprehensively assess the effect of a living will on end-of-life care. DESIGN: Systematic review with narrative analysis following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses methodology. PARTICIPANTS: All interventional and observational studies were included, excepting those with fictive cases. Included studies were conducted in adults with and without living wills, excluding individuals with specific psychiatric living wills...

BACKGROUND: Little information is available on the long-term use of post-acute care among older patients with colorectal cancer (CRC), relative to individuals without cancer. This study examines the use of post-acute care among older cancer survivors (>65 y) with CRC and compares it with noncancer patients up to 5 years from surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort. SETTING: SEER-Medicare. PARTICIPANTS: Patients treated for stage I to III CRC between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2011 (n = 40 812) and noncancer Medicare beneficiaries hospitalized for noncancer treatment matching on age, sex, race, comorbidity, and Medicaid dual eligibility...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Over a million older patients in the United States are admitted yearly for emergency general surgery (EGS) conditions. Seven procedure types dominate: colon, small bowel, gallbladder, ulcer disease, adhesiolysis, appendix, and laparotomy operations. A higher comorbidity burden is known to increase mortality in this population, but the impact of specific comorbidity combinations is unknown. Our objectives were to (1) characterize the distribution of procedures, comorbidities, and outcomes for older patients undergoing EGS; and (2) apply a data-driven approach (association rule mining) to identify comorbidity combinations associated with disproportionately high mortality...

REVIEW
Weihong Zhang, Lee-Fay Low, Josephine Diana Gwynn, Lindy Clemson
OBJECTIVES: To review intervention programs that measure gait to investigate what features of the intervention may contribute to improving gait in older adults with cognitive impairment or dementia. DESIGN: Systematic review using Medline, Cinahl, Scopus, PsychInfo, Amed, Embase, Web of Science, and PubMed for original research published in English between January 1, 2000, and July 23, 2018, to identify interventional controlled trials. Narrative synthesis was undertaken...

OBJECTIVES: Although there is increasing interest in using functional status to guide clinical decision making, function is seldom routinely assessed in primary care. We explored clinician perspectives on barriers and facilitators to routine measurement of older adults' functional status in primary care settings. DESIGN: Qualitative study using semistructured interviews. SETTING: Primary care and geriatrics clinics at six Veterans Affairs Medical Centers...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) to describe the quality of end-of-life care in US hospitals from the perspective of hospital nurses; and (2) to evaluate the relationship between the nurse practice environment and end-of-life care quality. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis of multiple linked secondary data sources. PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: A total of 12,870 direct care registered nurses in 491 acute-care hospitals. MEASUREMENTS: Measures of end-of-life care quality and nurse practice environment were derived from the 2016 RN4CAST-US survey of nurses...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: New or worsened disabilities in functional, cognitive, or mental health following an intensive care unit (ICU) stay are referred to as post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). PICS has not been described in older adults receiving home care. Our aim was to examine the relationship between length of ICU stay and PICS among older adults receiving home care. We expected that patients in the ICU for 3 days or longer would demonstrate significantly more disability in all three domains on follow-up than those not in the ICU...
