The Geriatric Nursing Assistant: The Most Important Team Player – The Most Important Eyes

Nursing assistants explain important signs they look for when entering a resident’s room. Discussion considers physical, emotional and cognitive changes. Physical changes include a consideration of skin breakdown and the beginning of pressure sores, changes in vital signs, appetite, sleep patterns and activity level. Emotional and cognitive changes include sudden onset of confusion, changes in mood, motivation, cognitive ability, and inability to follow instructions, and an inability to participate in activities of daily living.

This tape is part of a two tape series listed in this catalog as The Geriatric Nursing Assistant: The Most Important Team Player – The Series.
