Abstract

The key relative of 417 nursing home residents was interviewed to determine reasons for admission and patient behaviour before admission using the Psychogeriatric Dependency Rating Scale (PGDRS). Families stated that 25% of new nursing home admissions were due to disruptive behaviour but there were nearly always other reasons for admission as well. A receiver operating characteristic curve and cluster analysis showed that a greater amount of generalized behaviour problems predicted admission in the 74% of new residents. Admission because of disruptive behaviour was associated with greater cognitive impairment, possible Alzheimer's disease, delusions or hallucinations, a psychiatric diagnosis, admission from home, requiring help from others before admission and a permanent move to a nursing home. Both psychiatric and social factors are important determinants of nursing home admission for disruptive behaviour.
