  1. Behavioural problems in Sydney nursing homes.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of significant behavioural disturbance in 46 Sydney nursing homes was examined.

    All 2445 residents were rated on a brief screening questionnaire by senior nurses, who decided that 704 (29%) displayed at least one problem behaviour for much of the time.

    Primary care nurses (PCNs) then rated these'screen-positive'residents using the Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory (CMAI).

    In one nursing home the PCNs rated all 100 residents on the CMAI and found that 24 of 58'screen-negative'residents displayed CMAI behaviours once daily or more.

    Of CMAI behaviours rated as occurring daily or more often, 30% were manifested by'screen-negative'residents.

    Prevalence figures based on'screen-positive'residents are underestimates.

    Interrater reliability between PCNs was good.

    We report that at least 3.3% of residents paced and 0.45% screamed several times an hour.

    Each of the following behaviours was manifested daily or more often by 10-15% of the residents : restlessness, pacing, repetitive sentences, constant calls for help, cursing/verbal aggression and complaining.

    Aggressive behaviours (eg hitting, kicking, biting) were less common, and a relationship to cognitive impairment was demonstrated.

    Increased research on assessment and management of these behaviours is needed.
