Ritabelle Fernandes, Sylvia Osarch, Nancy E Allen
The Pacific Islands Geriatric Education Center of the University of Hawaii conducted situational assessments of caregivers, older adults, and healthcare professionals in the Republic of Palau. The findings revealed an urgent need for a solution to the identified crisis of an aging population, increasing chronic diseases and their corresponding impact on caregivers and society. In 2010, the National Healthcare Financing Act was signed into law, becoming Palau's first step in helping residents and workers in Palau pay for medical expenses...

Rod Morgan, Elizabeth A Madigan
The Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) is mandated for use in home healthcare. The purpose of this descriptive study was to compare occupational therapy (OT) OASIS rating of functional status items compared with registered nurse (RN) and physical therapy (PT) ratings. Functional status data were collected on 80 patients: 40 patients comparing RN with OT and 40 patients comparing PT with OT. RN and PT visits were made first and the OT visit followed. There were no items with perfect agreement. The highest agreement was for feeding (76...

The objective of this observational time and motion study was to increase our understanding of how nurses in home healthcare currently distribute their work time with a focus on the medication management process. The research was conducted in four municipalities in the southern part of Sweden. Participants were nurses working in home healthcare. The study measured proportion of time, comparison of proportions of time, proportion of time spent multitasking, and rate of interruptions per hour. Of total observed time, 20...

Urinary incontinence (UI) in older adult patients poses a risk for complications and hospitalization. The aim of this quality improvement project was to develop and implement a protocol to promote continence in older adults with UI. Data were collected from a convenience sample of 26 participants, 80 years of age or older, in a midsize suburban home care agency. All participants were diagnosed with UI as documented in the Outcomes and Assessment Information Set (OASIS). OASIS question M1610 was used to identify patients with UI status, and M1650 was used, to identify UI frequency...

Assuring home care staff competencies through simulation has the potential to improve care transitions and clinical outcomes. Recreating a home environment can be used for orientation of home care staff and to meet other learning needs. Lessons learned from the use of simulation in a geriatric nursing course in a prelicensure program can be used to prepare clinicians for transitioning patients across care settings. With simulation, learners can identify challenges in patient safety, pain management, and management of patients' cognitive decline as well as learn how to communicate with patients, family members, and the healthcare team...

Teri Capriotti, Meghan Scanlon
Home healthcare clinicians are in a unique position to assess patients for risk of osteoporosis and fragility fractures. They are also key members of the interdisciplinary care team in the recovery of patients with fragility fractures. Home healthcare clinicians care for an aging patient population with diverse conditions and multiple medications that can increase their risk of osteoporosis. Bone mineral density in addition to an evaluation of clinical risk factors are necessary to diagnose osteoporosis; DEXA and FRAX are the tools available...
