Relation between destination on discharge in the elderly patients and comprehensive geriatric assessment at admission in the ward of the Geriatric Department of University Hospital



Relation between destination on discharge in the elderly patients and comprehensive geriatric assessment at admission in the ward of the Geriatric Department of University Hospital



Nihon Ronen Igakkai Zasshi. Japanese Journal of Geriatrics 39(1): 75-82



To determine the factors related to the destination on discharge from the geriatric ward of Nagoya University Hospital, we analyzed the relationship between the scores of comprehensive geriatric assessment at admission and the destination in patients who had dwelled in home. The scores of basic activity of daily living (Barthel index), instrumental activity of daily living (Lowton scale), and cognitive function (Mini-Mental State Examination) were significantly lower in the patients who moved to institutions than those in the patients who returned home. The proportion of disabilities in all items, except eating, in the Barthel index, and all items but washing in the Lowton scale were significantly higher in patients who moved to institutions than in patients who returned home. Space orientation, calculation, and drawing in the Mini-Mental State Examination were related to the destination. In items for social life communication and group behavior were related to the destination. In multiple logistic regression models, it was suggested that activity of daily living, specifically independence of excretion, and ability in communication were significantly related to the destination on discharge.
