Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book, written by several authors, describes in depth the role of the medical director in nursing homes and the nature of medical care provided in nursing homes.
Purpose: Its purpose is to improve care in nursing homes by describing the proper care there, given the growth of nursing homes now and in the future.
Audience: The audience is physicians caring for persons living in nursing homes.
Features: This book features many algorithms and assessment instruments as well as giving the "minimum data set." There are useful appendixes containing typical policies and procedures for nursing homes.
Assessment: This thorough exposition of nursing home care provides broad coverage of medical care in nursing homes. New developments in subacute care are presented. The book lacks a discussion of the decision-making process in nursing homes and how to interact with family members of nursing home residents. Adding the physician's role in risk management and how to credential a medical staff would be useful additions.

Argues for the necessity and possibility of improving the medical care in nursing homes, and makes suggestions both to primary physicians who follow their patients into old age, and to geriatric specialists who become medical directors in nursing homes. Assumes a sound knowledge of general and geriatric medicine, and is meant to complement textbooks that focus on these areas. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
