Ten Things Every Geriatrician Should Know About House Calls
Home ‐based primary care (HBPC) is experiencing a reemergence to meet the needs of homebound older adults. This brief review based on existing literature and expert opinion discusses 10 key facts about HBPC that every geriatrician should know: (1) the team‐based nature of HBPC is key to its success; (2) preparations and after‐hour access for house calls are required; (3) home safety for the clinician and patient must be considered; (4) being homebound is an independent mortality risk factor with a high symptom burden; (5) home care medicine presents unique benefits and challenges; (6) a syste ms‐based approach to c...

Trends in Hospital Deaths in Denmark from 1980 to 2014, at Ages 50 and Older
ConclusionResults provide evidence that Danes 50 years and older are increasingly dying outside the hospital context. We find three age ‐specific patterns in the proportion of hospital deaths. Changes in healthcare and social systems implemented in Denmark during the observation period may underlie the broader reduction in hospital deaths in the country.

Hospital at Home ‐Plus: A Platform of Facility‐Based Care
CONCLUSIONProviding a broader range of facility ‐based care in the home has significant advantages for patients and increases the scalability of HaH. Developing a spectrum of services was possible by leveraging a robust, 24‐hour HaH team. Community‐ and home‐based care could become a greater part of the U.S. healthcare system if a platfor m of HaH services along with advances in technology and payment models were developed.

Effect of Age on Opioid Prescribing, Overdose, and Mortality in Massachusetts, 2011 to 2015
ConclusionOlder adults are more likely to be exposed to PIP, which increases their risk of adverse events. Strategies to reduce exposure to PIP and to improve outcomes in those already exposed will be instrumental to addressing the opioid crisis in older adults.

Assessing Risk for Adverse Outcomes in Older Adults: The Need to Include Both Physical Frailty and Cognition
BACKGROUNDPhysical frailty is a powerful tool for identifying nondisabled individuals at high risk of adverse outcomes. The extent to which cognitive impairment in those without dementia adds value to physical frailty in detecting high ‐risk individuals remains unclear.OBJECTIVESTo estimate the effects of combining physical frailty and cognitive impairment without dementia (CIND) on the risk of basic activities of daily living (ADL) dependence and death over 8 years.DESIGNProspective cohort study.SETTINGThe Health and Retirement Study (HRS).PARTICIPANTSA total of 7338 community ‐dwelling people, 65 years or older, with...

Nonspecific Symptoms Lack Diagnostic Accuracy for Infection in Older Patients in the Emergency Department
CONCLUSIONSThe presence of either altered mental status or malaise/lethargy does not substantially increase the probability of bacterial infection in older adults in the ED and should not be used alone to indicate infection in this population. Fever of 38 °C or higher is associated with increased probability of infection. (Source: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society)

Functional Trajectories of Persons with Cardiovascular Disease in Late Life
ConclusionAlthough function declines in late life for independently functioning persons with CVD, some individuals remain stable, and others decline gradually or rapidly. Persons with CVD were more likely to experience rapid functional decline than those without, suggesting that CVD increases the risk of rapid functional decline. Risk factors predicted functional trajectory group membership, not just overall decline. (Source: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society)

Multifactorial Examination of Caregiver Burden in a National Sample of Family and Unpaid Caregivers
CONCLUSIONCaregiver characteristics and provision of caregiving tasks determine caregiver burden more than care recipient characteristics. Absence of an association between type of a care recipient's chronic conditions and burden, except for dementia, suggests that the tasks that caregivers who assist older adults with a variety of health conditions undertake shape the experience of caregiving.

Management of Acute Changes in Condition in Skilled Nursing Facilities
CONCLUSIONSA wide variety of acute changes in condition can be managed in SNFs without hospital transfer. Most of these changes are nonspecific and multiple, and when they are associated with hospital transfer, the reasons for the transfer are most often different from the initial acute change in condition. These data highlight the multifactorial nature of acute changes in condition in the SNF population and suggest that disease ‐specific protocols and assessment tools may not be the most appropriate approach to managing acute changes in condition in the SNF setting.
