Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, presents timely information on the newest trends in law, culture, and medications, while still offering essential advice on the fundamental concerns of caring for elderly patients with mental illnesses.

The new edition of this essential handbook presents up-to-date information on psychiatric issues involving nursing home patients.

  • the rapid development of the specialty of geriatric psychiatry
With its comprehensive scope and practical advice, Psychiatry in the Nursing Home, Second Edition, is a must-have for nursing-home administrators and staff.
