Psychoactive medications in the the lont-term care setting : differing perspectives among physicians, nursing staff, and patients.
Differences in perceptions among nursing home patients, nursing staff, and physicians were compared in this preliminary study regarding nighttime disorders and psychoactive medications.
Nighttime disorders, including both insomnia and behavior problems, are prevalent among institutionalized elderly and are frequently managed with psychoactive medications.
All nursing home patients receiving psychoactive medications, the nursing staff, and the physicians involved in their care were interviewed regarding the description, etiology, management, and impact of the nighttime disorder including side effects of the prescribed medications.
