Editorial Reviews

This training DVD addresses the urgent need for nursing staff to recognize and prevent Alzheimer’s abuse in institutional environments. As these residents can’t verbally communicate their distress, Dr. Peter Rabins and nursing assistants identify the following behaviors which may either precipitate  or indicate abuse or neglect. These include: agitation, catastrophic reactions, withdrawn behaviors, sudden increase in confusion; and emotional distress which may be manifested in crying or changes in sleeping/eating patterns.  
Many of these behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s disease may trigger staff anger or frustration resulting in physical or verbal abuse.  Proper training ensures that staff understand that these behaviors are part of the disease and have appropriate responses. Perhaps the most frequent form of abuse for the Alzheimer’s patient is neglect. All too often patients with Alzheimer’s disease are left in their rooms for extended periods of time, not changed or cleaned as frequently as other patients, and allowed to remain in pain.
Strategies to prevent abuse and neglect include: the importance of knowing each resident; recognizing behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s disease; responding to changes in behavior; and, making sure to involve residents as much as possible in daily life.
