Presented by Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center plus

This two-hour course gives Sharp Chula Vista certified nursing assistants strategies to improve care for a patient with an altered mental status. You will learn how to identify early triggers and signs that may prevent or reduce patient agitation levels. The instructor will also show you how an effective plan of care can prevent injuries during the patient's activities of daily living (ADLs).

In addition to the lecture, there will be an opportunity at the class to demonstrate what you have learned through simulations and case studies.

At the end of this training, you will be able to:

  • Recognize at least two differences between dementia and delirium in an acute-care setting and how proper identification affects hospitalization
  • Identify three unique requirements of a patient with one or more of the following disorders: delirium, dementia, substance abuse withdrawal or exacerbation of psychiatric disorders
  • Demonstrate three effective communication techniques to provide ADLs for a patient with an altered mental status
  • Give three techniques to prevent or reduce patient agitation levels by identifying triggers and early signs based on the different populations most likely to require direct observation
  • Develop training points that show commitment to patient-centered care plans that reduce or prevent agitation or injury in a patient with an altered mental status
