The purpose behind Behavioral Health Management:
National statistics include that the use of Antipsychotic drugs for Nursing home residents is widespread. Antipsychotic Drugs are detrimental for older people when used inappropriately. Recent studies questioned the safety and effectiveness of antipsychotic drugs. Research suggests that 80% of long-term care facility residents exhibit degrees of impairment in their emotional and/or cognitive functioning. Older adults have a stronger reaction to psychotropic medications. Many types of these psychotropic drugs lose their effectiveness and/or cause untoward side effects. Medical Behavioral Management achieves successful outcomes by providing individual treatment plans, for those nursing home residents exhibiting behavior such as: physical aggressiveness, verbal hallucinations, & insomnia.
