Visual Barriers to Prevent Ambulatory ALzheimer's Patients from Exiting through an Emergency Door.
Namazi, Kevan H.; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n5 p699-702 Oct 1989
Conducted study on Alzheimer's unit to test seven different visual barrier conditions for reducing patient exits. Findings indicated that exiting was eliminated under two conditions. Results suggest visual agnosia, the inability to interpret what the eye sees, may be used as tool in managing wandering behavior of Alzheimer's patients. (Author/NB)
