Maureen Benbow
Skin tears are common in older people. They are acute wounds that are at high risk of becoming complex, chronic wounds due to the interplay between the physiological changes in the skin and trauma from the external environment. Skin tears have been reported to have prevalence rates equal to, or greater than, those for pressure ulcers. A comprehensive risk assessment should include assessment of the individual's general health (chronic/critical disease, polypharmacy and cognitive, sensory and nutritional status); mobility (history of falls, impaired mobility, dependent activities of daily living, and mechanical trauma); and skin (extremes of age, fragile skin and previous skin tears)...

Nursing older people in acute settings involves the provision of complex care, including the maintenance of good hydration. Dehydration is a serious condition that may contribute to the development of pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections, acute kidney injury and venous thromboembolism. If oral hydration methods are not successful, the alternatives are intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous fluid hydration therapy. These are invasive methods and may not be tolerated by all patients. This article uses a case study to explore an innovative approach to oral hydration...

Concerns have been raised in recent years about standards of care in the UK. Notable failures have been identified in the care of vulnerable older adults. This article identifies and discusses some logical steps which might be taken to minimise the risk of individual and systemic care failure in settings for older adults. These steps include frank discussion about ageism to promote empowerment and respect for older people; ensuring robust policies are in place that support and encourage the reporting of poor care; and ensuring that registered practitioners are aware of their accountability for their actions and also their omissions should they witness poor care...

We are good at reinventing the wheel in older people's nursing, where we often find ourselves struggling with the same practice issues regardless of care setting. Frequently, the starting point is to develop a local solution.

Sometimes a book that seems at first rather densely written, and more concerned with theory than practice, develops into a fascinating and valuable text for academic and practising nurses. This is such a book.

With the proportion of the population over 65 years set to rise to one in five people by 2030, the need and demand for skilled health and social care practitioners is expected to rise too. An effective future workforce must promote health, well-being and self-care in later life, while managing the consequences of frailty, long-term conditions and co-morbidities in an ageing population.
