Caring for Disordered Behavior in the Nursing Home
Twenty years ago, the unique opportunity came about to film in a nursing home which had a population of residents with extreme disordered behaviors. These behaviors included: yelling and physically acting out; pushing away nursing assistants who came to help with dressing and bathing; and, shouting and swearing when staff needed to take vital signs. Peter V. Rabins, MD, came to the nursing home to observe the behaviors and to work with the staff in caring for these residents.
This DVD presents the residents as they refuse care and physically and verbally threaten staff. Nursing assistant talk with Dr. Rabins and together, they develop strategies and interventions to reassure the residents and make them realize that staff are there to help them. These strategies remain relevant today. Staff working in long-term care and assisted living with confused or agitated residents will find this DVD essential.
