This session is based upon the White Paper being prepared by the AMDA Transitions of Care Committee on the role of dementia in increasing unnecessary hospital re-admissions and poorer outcomes for those residents. The role of the skilled nursing facility (SNF) in reducing those unnecessary hospital transfers will be discussed; the role of the emergency room in the care of those with dementia; the role of the hospitalist in addressing patients with dementia; and, how to properly prepare the resident/family for the difficult care of the demented resident will be explored. A panel of authors of the paper will discuss the difficulties of the care of the demented and recommendations to measure and improve transitions in this population.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Explore the impact of cognitive impairment on long-term care facilities, clinicians, and residents.
  • Explain how cognitive impairment places transitioning residents at risk for poor outcomes.
  • Review special areas of emphasis necessary for reducing readmissions in cognitive impaired LTC residents.
  • Provide recommendations to reduce readmissions and reduce harm while addressing transitions in cognitively impaired residents.
