Fall Risk Precautions
Falls are the leading cause of fatal & non-fatal injuries for older Americans. 1 in 4 older Americans fall each year, and 3 million older adults are treated for injuries from a fall. Training is important to understand how to handle these situations properly.
Pain management training teaches caregivers how to be observant of non-verbal cues, how to know the difference between types of pain, and more. It is extremely important for patient care, and offering the best care value.
Urinary Incontinence training is important because it teaches caregivers the need to recognize, report and support their home care clients who experience incontinence. Without effective continence management, this condition could lead to infection, falls, skin breakdown, inactivity and general decline in a person’s health.
Bowel Incontinence training is important for caregivers so they are aware of some of the causes of this condition. Bowel incontinence can occur in childbirth during delivery, straining during a bowel movement, or after a stroke, spinal cord injury or complex surgery. Muscle or nerve damage can make it hard to hold back stool.
Depression and Loneliness
From 2009–2012, 7.6% of Americans aged 12 and over had depression and experienced moderate or severe depressive symptoms in the past 2 weeks. That is why training in this area is crucial, and can aid in giving the best care possible to patients.
Vaccines and Immunizations
According to the CDC, In the U.S., vaccines have greatly reduced or eliminated many infectious diseases that once routinely killed or harmed infants, children, and adults. Knowing how to administer vaccines and immunizations is an important part of giving value based care.
Heart failure is a common condition that can occur when there has been an injury to the heart muscle that progresses over time. Because it is a common condition, it is important for caregivers to be properly trained on the subject and give the best care possible.
Electrolytes balance the amount of water in the body. If the body has too much water, it can become swollen and in rare cases lead to a problem called water intoxication, which can be fatal for patients. This is why Electrolyte Imbalance Training is so important.
Respiratory infections can be described as illnesses that affect parts of the body that help us breathe. In older patients this can be extremely harmful and thus, proper training is needed.
Sepsis is a very serious and life-threatening condition that can begin when a person has an infection. It is a medical emergency that can lead to death. It is imperative for caregivers to have training in this area, and know what to look for when it comes to sepsis symptoms.
Anemia is a condition where the blood doesn't have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. If not recognized or treated, there can be serious results.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
If a Urinary Tract Infection is not treated, it could spread to the kidneys, where the bacteria can get into the bloodstream. This can lead to SEPSIS, a very serious result of having an infection that is toxic, life-threatening and can lead to death. Thus, proper training is important.
