  1. Three year outcome of the residents in a special nursing home.

    Article - En anglais

    The 3 year outcome of 48 residents in a special nursing home was investigated, using Hasegawa's dementia rating scale (HDS) and activities of daily living (ADL).

    For all the residents, HDS score correlates well with age (P<0.01) and ADL score (P<0.001).

    Nineteen residents (40.4%) died during the period surveyed.

    Two-thirds of the residents with low ADL score died during the period, whereas 70% of the residents with high ADL score are alive.

    Of these scales, ADL correlated well with the fatal prognosis, suggesting that ADL is a valuable prognostic tool.

    As for the causes of death, pulmonary disease was prominent (n=12,63.2%). Consequently, the prevention of pulmonary disease is needed to achieve a good outcome in the management of nursing home residents.
