  1. The impact of antipsychotic drug regulations on psychotropic prescribing practices in nursing homes.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors prospectively studied psychotropic prescribing practices and quality assurance data in 17 nursing homes in the Baltimore area to assess the impact of federal antipsychotic drug regulations.

    There was a 36% reduction in prescriptions for neuroleptics over 6 months, no increase in prescriptions for sedative/hypnotics, and a small increase in prescriptions for antidepressants.

    The authors conclude that psychotropic drug prescribing practices and patient outcomes remain important areas of study in nursing homes.
