This video discusses best practices in preventing aspiration during and within the first few hours after oral feedings, as well as discussion of best practices and demonstration of techniques that help the nurse assess placement and evaluate the location of feeding tubes. Also included in the program are practices considered outdated and unreliable in assessing feeding tube placement.
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.
