The purpose of this study was to identify nursing care for elderly patients with dementia using Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Set (UHDDS) and Nursing Minimum Data Set (NMDS) of a community hospital in the United States Mid-west. The study sample included 222 elderly patients with dementia who were discharged in the year 1998. The findings were as follows.1. The proportion of dementia in this study was 8.5% among total elderly patients. The most common associated disease was hypertension (n=40, 18.0%), followed by urinary tract infection (n=30, 13.5%). 2. The most frequent nursing diagnoses were altered health maintenance (n=158, 71.2%), knowledge deficit (n=150, 67.6%), potential for injury (n=119, 53.6%), potential for infection (n=102, 45.9%), pain (n=89, 40.1%), impaired physical mobility (n=78, 35.1%), and altered thought process (n=64, 28.8%). 3. The most frequent interventions were discharge planning (n=138, 62.1%), surveillance safety (n=86, 38.8%), fall prevention (n=78, 34.9%), teaching: disease process (n=74, 33.1%), learning facilitation (n=66, 29.5%), and infection protection (n=65, 29.3%). The results identified the need for continued work on the linkage of the nursing care elements, including nursing diagnosis, nursing intervention, and nursing-sensitive outcome, using the standardized languages.
