This study is an innovative study to identify nursing care for elderly patients with dementia using NMDS data warehouse from the computerized nursing information system. Secondary data analysis was conducted on a large clinical discharge data set containing NMDS elements from Nursing Information System in a Mid-west community hospital. The study sample included the 597 elderly patients with dementia among total 7772 elderly patients who were discharged between 1996 through 1998. The prevalence of dementia in this study was 7.7% among total elderly patients. The most common associated disease was hypertension,followed by cardiac dysrhythmias. The most frequent nursing diagnoses were altered health maintenance, knowledge deficit, potential for injury, potential for infection, pain, impaired physical mobility, and altered thought process. The most frequent interventions were discharge planning, surveillance safety, fall prevention, teaching: disease process, learning facilitation, and infection protection. The results from this study provided a description of nursing diagnoses and interventions used by practicing nurses for elderly patients with dementia in acute care settings using the NMDS framework. They also support the need for continued work on the linkage of the nursing care elements of the NMDS, including nursing diagnosis, nursing intervention, and nursing-sensitive outcome.
