Bedside optometric care in a hospital environment.
Symposium on Public Health - Optometric Care in Hospitals, Medical Centers, and Comprehensive Health Care Environments Symposium. San Diego, California USA ; San Diego, California USA, 1994/12/11.
The demand for bedside optometric care is increasing because of the rise in the geriatric population and the increasing fiscal demands with which long-term care facilities in the United States are faced.
It is important for optometrists to keep pace with the need for bedside optometric care in hospital environments.
I will discuss the requirements for performing the bedside examination such as knowing what rules and regulations must be followed, the importance of making an environmental assessment with corresponding recommendations, as well as possessing the necessary portable equipment.
