BACKGROUND: Wheeled walkers are recommended to improve walking performance in older persons and to encourage and assist participation in daily life. Nevertheless, using a wheeled walker can cause serious problems in the natural environment. This study aimed to compare uphill and downhill walking with walking level in geriatric patients using a wheeled walker. Furthermore, we investigated the effect of using a wheeled walker with respect to dual tasking when walking level. METHODS: A total of 20 geriatric patients (median age 84...

A systematic review was conducted for all published case reports on drug-induced torsade de pointes (TdP) in elderly (≥80 years) patients to study if the administration of the offending agent was reckless. Overall, 61 reports on drug-induced TdP in patients aged 80-97 years were included in the analysis. Non-modifiable risk factors for drug-induced TdP (e.g. acute coronary syndrome, female gender and congestive heart failure), modifiable risk factors (e.g. hypokalemia, severe hypomagnesemia and digitalis toxicity) and reckless administration of a QT interval-prolonging agent (e...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: In 2006 the psychosomatic day care hospital for the treatment of acute mental illness of elderly people opened as the first clinic of its kind in Germany. The aim of the study was to determine treatment effectiveness regarding quality of life and cognition. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Designed as a naturalistic study of a population sample of 116 patients, the cognitive capacity (memory performance and cognitive speed) and the subjective quality of life were measured by the Nuremberg aging inventory (NAI) and the World Health Organization quality of life for elderly persons (WHOQOL-OLD)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring hemodialysis are typically characterized by multimorbidity and increasingly by advanced age; however, there are few data on their geriatric needs. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of a large cohort of incident patients in ambulatory hemodialysis units with a particular focus on those aged over 80 years in Germany. METHODS: The electronic patient registry of the Board of Trustees (Kuratorium) for Dialysis and Kidney Transplantation (KfH) was searched for all patients who began hemodialysis in 1 of the 191 units between 2007 and 2013 and were 65 years and older...

BACKGROUND: Nursing and care that consider individual and biographically shaped impressions requires, among other things sensitivity for the specific needs of persons in need of care. OBJECTIVE: A representative survey was conducted among directors of nursing homes to provide information about the importance of gender-specific aspects in nursing. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In a written survey 516 directors of German resident care facilities were interviewed about their attitudes and perceptions regarding the subject, about information on general and gender-specific offers and about demographic information on the management of nursing homes...

BACKGROUND: According to the nursing statistics from 2014 a total of 2.6 million patients in Germany required nursing care of which 1.86 million received care at home and approximately 29 % (764,000 patients) received inpatient treatment exclusively in a nursing home. Reports on the number of long-term nursing care patients usually only include patients with a need of long-term care (according to § 14 German Social Code XI) confirmed by the statutory healthcare insurance. Currently, in Germany there is no nationwide report based on routine (billing) data estimating the number of patients in protective residential homes or institutions, nursing homes or homes for the elderly with nursing personnel (private institutions) based on routine data...

J Heusinger, S Dummert
BACKGROUND: Residential nursing homes are specialized in dealing with people in need of care and are required to respect their dignity and right to self-determination. This includes the respectful handling of gender-specific needs and wishes of residents. Personal hygiene is one important area to which this applies. OBJECTIVE: This study was carried out to investigate residents' gender-specific perception of life and care in nursing homes. This article focuses on unspecific and gender-specific needs in the area of personal hygiene, seeking to identify where changes are needed...

BACKGROUND: "Doing gender" plays an important role in nursing interactions in long-term care settings. AIM: The aim of this article is to focus on the experiences of staff and management in a long-term care setting on the social categorization of gender and to reflect and discuss these findings against already existing research. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Within a qualitative study, one to one interviews and group discussions with a total of 28 participants were conducted...

BACKGROUND: Due to demographic changes and the associated consequences, men are increasingly being confronted with the challenge to reconcile caregiving and profession. Statistical data confirm that the proportion of male caregivers is continuously increasing. These men operate in a field of specifically female connotation, with which they are not too familiar. The investigation of action strategies of male caregivers has long been neglected in scientific research. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to provide a differentiated approach to a male caregiving behavior...

Clostridium difficile is the main cause of nosocomial antibiotic-associated diarrhea in adults in Europe and North America. Infections with C. difficile typically occur in elderly patients with comorbidities and prior antibiotic therapy. Other risk factors are proton pump inhibitors, which are taken by many elderly patients. The main virulence factors are toxins A and B. The clinical spectrum ranges from asymptomatic colonization to severe disease with abdominal complications and sepsis. The current diagnostic gold standard is anaerobic culture but is impractical in routine use due to the long duration...

BACKGROUND: Regional planning of healthcare requires special consideration for the complex needs of elderly, multimorbid people living in a domestic environment. In the District of Lippe, a hospital (Klinikum Lippe) and network of ambulatory care physicians (Ärztenetz Lippe) developed and tested a geriatric care network based on case management for geriatric patients living in a domestic environment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The establishment of the geriatric care network (e...

OBJECTIVE: To document the state of knowledge of professional caregivers in the field of geriatric dermatology and make recommendations for dermatological education and postgraduate training. METHODS: A questionnaire with open and closed questions was used to evaluate the level of knowledge and current need for information in geriatric dermatology...

AIM: This study was carried out to systematically describe nurses' competence in kinaesthetics. BACKGROUND: In elderly care the kinaesthetics program for nurses has been taught for over 25 years; however, the competence that nurses should gain through kinaesthetics training from a theoretical perspective has not yet been systematically described. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The method was modelled after the three phases of the hybrid model of concept development by Schwartz-Barcott and Kim (2000)...

BACKGROUND: The RehaWatch® system is a portable accelerometer for measurement of gait parameters that shows good validity in young adults; however, validity data are missing for elderly persons in long-term care (LTC). AIM: The aim was to evaluate the concurrent validity of the RehaWatch® system using the GAITRite® system as a criterion reference for gait assessment in the LTC elderly. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this study 23 elderly participants (mean age 90...
