  1. The institutionalized elderly : dry to the bone !

    Article - En anglais

    The fluid intake of 57 elderly male and female patients, drawn from psychogeriatric, long-term care and geriatric admission units, was monitored.

    The fluid intake was determined by direct observation and recording of fluids consumed by each subject over three 24-hour periods.

    In all cases, regardless of the unit, level of dependency, cognitive or continence status, elderly patients received considerably less fluid than the recommended daily intake of 2000-2500 ml.

    In the case of patients who were cognitively impaired, dependent and incontinent, fluid intake was less than patients who did not have these impediments.

    Forty-seven nurses, working on the three units, completed a self-administered questionnaire on the fluid needs of elderly patients.

    Generally, nurses'knowledge was inadequate in a number of areas such as the signs and complications of dehydration and the fluid requirements of the elderly.

    A study of this size does not permit general conclusions to be drawn.

    Nonetheless, if the results are indicative of current practice, nurses do not have a good knowledge of the fluid needs of the elderly, and the low level of fluid intake constitutes a form of neglect.
