Abstract
The purpose of medicine advancement is for a healthier and longer life.Long-term care development in Taiwan needed to stress not only on prolong life, but also on care quality. Prevention play a important role on long term care policy The purpose of this study was to explore the potential long-term care needs for clints in discharge planning program.This study adopted a crosssectional design, and a purposive sampling technique was used. patients who are more than 40 years old were recruited from medical and surgical ward. The Japan’s Kaigo-Yobo checklist and chart review were used to collect relevant data. 104 clients were recruited with mean age 65.2 ±12.3 years. 84 participants (81%) were indicated as LTC risk in potential. Among the 84 participants (81%), 31 (30%) participants were on the domain of activity and exercise needs,27 (26%) participants were at the risk on general LTC needs domain.The collected data were the analyzed by Logistic regression analysis. The results showed that the factor of individuals’ social-economic status and their potential LTC needs were significantly corrected. The relatively risk on LTC potential of individuals with low socio-economic status was 6.3 times higher than the individuals with high socio-economic status.The Japan’s Kaigo-Yobo checklist is a screening tool, which is used to early detect LTC risks.This study tried to apply a more holistic screening tool on clients who discharged from hospital services and we hope this tool could play a mojor role on early detected LTC potentials and provide a better prevention program.
