  1. Partnership nursing home care for dementia : the Glasgow experience : the first 12 weeks.

    Article - En anglais

    The outcome of the transfer of 60 elderly patients suffering from dementia from hospital to nursing home care under a partnership contract was studied at 6 and 12 weeks following transfer.

    Compared with patients remaining in hospital, there was no significant difference in mortality but the nursing home patients exhibited a greater decline in functional ability and a significant excess of pressure sores.

    Careful planning is required to ensure that such patients do not suffer as a result of transference of care.
