Nursing care quality initiative for care of hospitalized elders and their families

, : Nursing care quality initiative for care of hospitalized elders and their families. Journal of Nursing Care Quality 19(2): 156-161

This report describes a Nursing Care Quality Initiative (NCQI) through which a new model of care for hospitalized older adults and their families, the Family-Centered Geriatric Resource Nurse (FCGRN) model, was introduced. Eighteen units in 10 hospitals participated in the NCQI Project. Educational, clinical, and evaluation components of the NCQI Project are described.

The risk of acute aortic dissection (AAD) exhibits chronobiological variations with peak onset in the morning and in winter. However, it is not known whether the time of day or season of the year of the AAD affects clinical outcomes. We studied 1,...

In laboratory studies the maximum duration of the life cycle from egg to egg for Polyphagotarsonemus latus on tea was 190.50 h, and was lowest on cowpea (67.88 h). The oviposition period was longest on jute (241.25 h) and shortest on Solanum nigru...

Relevant variables were the variety of measures employed for monitoring psychotic symptoms, and the different criteria used to judge the degree of improvement. The au...
