Product Description

Get the vital clinical information you need with this comprehensive handbook!

In the decade since the first edition of this book, dramatic changes have taken place in the field of geriatric psychiatry. Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, presents timely information on the newest trends in law, culture, and medications, while still offering essential advice on the fundamental concerns of caring for elderly patients with mental illnesses.

The new edition of this essential handbook presents up-to-date information on psychiatric issues involving nursing home patients. Featuring helpful case histories and diagnostic criteria, Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, helps you effectively treat such difficult problems as noisy patients, sexual acting out, and incontinence. In addition, it offers help with such administrative concerns as financial issues, absent or warring families, and staffing problems.

Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, presents incisive discussions of the changes in the field since the publication of the first edition, including:
  • the effects of the new Prospective Payment System
  • the use of newly released psychotropic medications
  • the altered nomenclature of the DSM-IV
  • the rise in assisted-living facilities
  • the rapid development of the specialty of geriatric psychiatry
With its comprehensive scope and practical advice, Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, is a must-have for nursing-home administrators and staff. Policymakers, mental health professionals, and geriatricians will be fascinated by the book’s wider considerations of the problems of housing and caring for the mentally ill and its provocative suggestions for future policy.
