German, Pearl S.; And Others
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p152-58 Apr 1992
Studied newly admitted cohort (n=454) to eight nursing homes over first year of residence. Gathered data at admission, two months, and one year. Examined charts for preadmission and postdischarge information. At admission, 80 percent had mental illnesses. Found significant associations of mental morbidity, restraints, and psychotropic medication with behaviors indicative of noncoping and nonadaptation to nursing home settings. (Author/NB)
