Abstract

MDA 6-month clinical trial was conducted to evaluate two models of restorative nursing care designed to improve mobility in nursing home residents. The models were compared on number of residents enrolled, documentation of nursing assistant (NA) compliance, and nursing staff satisfaction. The designated model, which relied on one specially trained NA to perform restorative activities on the unit, resulted in higher rates of enrollment, compliance, and staff satisfaction compared with the integrated model, which relied on regular staff NAs who were trained to incorporate restorative activities into their daily routines.
