  1. Outcome of nursing home care for residents with alcohol use disorders.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To describe the outcome of nursing home (NH) care for a previously established cohort of residents with active, inactive or no alcohol use disorder (AUD), and to examine demographic variables, health services utilization, mortality and drinking behaviors in this group.

    Design

    Main outcome measures

    AUD as determined by DSM-III-R criteria.

    Demographics, health services utilization and mortality as abstracted from the VA medical record.

    Results

    Health service utilization as measured by care episodes was not significantly different in the three groups (active, inactive and no AUD), but subjects with AUD had documented health services use related to alcoholism, including hospitalizations for alcohol-related illness, placements in long-term care facilities to control drinking and death from alcohol-related causes.

    The mean age at death was significantly younger for study participants with active or inactive AUD compared to those with no AUD : 67.7,70.4 and 77.9 years, respectively (p<0.004). (...)
