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 Also included in the program are practices considered outdated and unreliable in assessing feeding tube placement.
As we age, so do our eyes. The resulting changes can put older adults at risk for injury; limit participation in favorite activities; cause increased sensitivity to light and glare; and ultimately limit independence. However, in many older adults with “low vision” the problems are not so obvious to others—until we take a closer look and better understand the nature and extent of the problem.
However, there are many simple interventions and enhanced technologies available to maximize vision and function. This 30-minute program provides viewers with a broad range of tools and strategies to enhance safety and maximize independence, and describes services, tools, and options available for those with vision loss.
