Objectives: Responding a demand from the centre of elderly abused persons (Centre d’Aide aux Personnes Âgées Maltraitées CAPAM) the general medicine department of the Liège University conducted a qualitative research on the elderly abuse performed at home. Methods: A half structured guide of interview concerning the health workers and their feelings and needs when looking after abused elderly people living at home was given to an interviewer. While performing the research, he recorded the nine focus groups chatting about elderly abused (in each group, they were 10 GP, nurses or nurses auxiliary). Results:General practitioners are mostly concerned by financial abuses, on the other hand, nurses and auxiliaries mostly talk about psychological or indifferent behaviours in elderly abused. Everyone talks about family and professional neglects. GP‘s behaviours are eventually criticised by nurses and auxiliary nurses as well. GP are identified to have the hugest power to react, but they argue not to have time and to lack of means to identify and cope with elderly abuse. So, when called out by nurses or auxiliary nurses, they don’t eventually give them satisfying answers. Mixed meetings could be hold to get a better coping and detection of elderly abuse performed at home. Conclusions: Research allowed to sharpen GP’s, behaviours, attitudes and specific role according to nurses and auxiliaries in front of elderly abuse and get a better view of the help to bring them.

OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to estimate the prevalence of malnutrition in elderly patients hospitalized with an acute illness, as well as to assess the clinical usefulness of standardized nutritional assessment upon admission by means of the MNA scale. Design: A prospective study. Setting: A large size regional university hospital. Subjects: There were 175 patients (113 women and 62 men) with a mean age of 79.7 + 8.5 years admitted for an acute problem. Death occurred in 11 patients (6.3%). METHODS: Upon admission, demographic (age, gender, origin) and medical (disease, drugs) data were recorded for each patient; the MNA questionnaire (score: 0-30) was administered and Katz score (7-28) calculated. At hospital discharge, data included Katz score, outcome (death/survival), and destination. RESULTS: The mean MNA score was 20.5 + 5.1 and the prevalence of severe malnutrition (MNA <17) was 21.7%. Further, 48.6% of elderly were at risk of malnutrition (MNA between 17 and 24). There was no association between MNA and age or gender, but underweight was a sign of low MNA values (P <.001). MNA scores were inversely related to Katz scores at both admission and hospital discharge (P <.001). Patients originating from nursing homes had a poorer nutritional status than those living at home (MNA: 18.4 against 22.3, P <.001). The number of drugs taken per patient (5.2 + 2.8) was found to be correlated with MNA (P =.049). MNA scores were on average significantly higher (P <.001) in survivors (20.9) than in nonsurvivors (14.1). CONCLUSIONS: The study clearly demonstrates the high prevalence of malnutrition and the clinical usefulness of the MNA scale in geriatric medicine. The MNA score upon admission reflects the patient's nutritional condition, degree of autonomy (Katz score), living conditions and current treatment. It is also predictive of patient's outcome (death or survival). [less ▲]
