Geriatric Nurse responsibilities include compiling a complete medical history of the patient’s prior health problems, current medications, surgeries, and cognitive abilities. They typically give patients medication, especially if dementia prevents them from correctly taking the prescribed dosage independently. A good understanding of dementia and methods to handle combative or confused patients is required. As part of the patient’s medical team, geriatric nurses will assist with medical tests and devise a plan for continued care after the patient returns home or enters an assisted living facility. A crucial part of the duties includes meeting with the patient’s family to help them deal with the physical and mental issues of their aged relative.
