This video accompanies “Nursing in the Fourth Decade of the HIV Epidemic,” a CE feature by Whitney Marie Starr and Lucy Bradley-Springer, which appears in the March 2014 issue of AJN. This digital story describes one of the authors’ early experience with an HIV-infected patient and how she learned things that changed her nursing perspective.
For you, the thought of a warm bath or shower is probably a treat anticipated to provide comfort and relaxation. How unfortunate that for those with dementia, the bathing experience may be a painful, frightening, and humiliating procedure.
With planning and a process customized to address each person’s unique needs, or a person-centered approach, older adults with dementia can be spared a negative experience. This 30-minute program is based on the April 2006 New Look at the Old AJN article by Joanne Rader MN, RN, et al, titled: The Bathing Of Older Adults with Dementia. The video outlines cutting-edge research and presents best practices in bathing from researchers and practitioners, as well as guidance from the perspective of a state regulatory agency on what actually constitutes compliance with relevant standards of care.
