DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2014.8.1.027
The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the process of hospital visits according to the characteristics of the elderly visiting to emergency medical centers. The subject of study was 571 patients over the age of 65 who agreed to participate in the study of emergency medical centers from May 1 to 31, 2010. The frequency, percentage and
test of collected data were conducted with SPSS WIN 12.0. As a result, the frequency of the aged with or without urgency revisiting emergency rooms due to chronic degenerative diseases was high. In addition, there were many cases that the aged living only with a spouse or remaining single. It was obscure to classify them into a urgent or non-emergent group which made it longer time to visit a hospital. It may be necessary that the care for urgent elderly patients considering the characteristics of the family environment functions to care the elderly were weakened.

DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2014.8.1.041
This study was a descriptive study to investigate factors affecting sleep time in the Korean elders. A secondary data analysis was conducted using the data of "The Fifth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2011". The survey included 3,487 people aged over 65 years and 1,163 samples were used for this study. Data were analyzed with the
-test and logistic regression using the SPSS/WIN 18.0 program. Analysis showed that sleep time was related with the number of chronic disease and limit on the activities of daily living(ADL). These findings suggest that nursing researchers need to consider chronic disease, and ADL as important factors affecting sleep time of Korean elders. Therefore nursing intervention focusing on the issues in needed to develope.

DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2014.8.1.051
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship among staffing, occupancy rate, upward level change of long-term care need, and evaluation grade of facility. Data were obtained from National Health Insurance Corporation Database. Occupancy rate and evaluation grade were highest in National/public operating facilities, while they were worst in individual operating facilities. The percents of A or B grade in evaluation grade (by newly enforced law) is highest in National/public operating facilities. Multiple regression analysis showed that upward level change of care needs was very weakly associated with the number of doctors. Evaluation grade showed a weak and significant association with occupancy ratey(by old-version law)(r=.20, p<.01), upward level change of care need in group home(r=.23, p<.01) Staffing in facility did not show significantly consistent association with upward level change of care needs, evaluation grade, and occupancy rate.

The purpose of this study is to analyze the correlation between cognition, depression and leisure activity in elderly people above 65 years of age, and to improve their health and quality of life by providing baseline data for occupational therapy intervention. This investigation was performed on 118 elderly people above 65 years of age who lived in local community and two senior welfare centers. In order to collect the data, we used MMSE-K, KDS, Questionnaire for leisure activity. The depression of elderly people was negatively correlated with their cognition(p<.01) and leisure activity(p<.001), whereas cognition was positively correlated with their leisure activity(p<.01). In conclusion, the correlation between cognition, depression and leisure activity of elderly people appeared statistically significant. Therefore, leisure activity program should be designed through additional research and effectively provided in nursing home and community senior welfare center to prevent depression increase and cognitive decline.

DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2014.8.1.075
The purpose of this study was to examine the factors affecting quality of life among elderly people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) in a community. The design of this study was an exploratory survey. The subjects were 268 adults aged over 65 years with DM in a community. The data were collected from July to October, 2011 and analyzed by descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression by using SPSS/WIN 20.0 program. The quality of life was positively associated with self care behavior (r=.226, p<.001), self-efficacy (r=.323, p<.001), and social support (r=.345, p<.001). However, quality of life had moderately negative correlation with depression (r=-.445, p<.001). Among the variables, depression, social support, and self-efficacy were explanatory factors accounting for 23.9% of quality of life. These findings suggest that depression and self-efficacy are important factors affecting quality of life in the elderly with DM and it can be improved by strengthening social support.

=-.248) and diseases of oral cavity (gingivitis)(
=-.172) in order. These factors occupied 73% of OHRQOL. Therefore, development of nursing intervention to develop a program for the improvement in behavior and education to reduce xerostomia, JFL, gingivitis and to improve the OHRQOL elderly development of nursing interventions are required.

DOI : 10.12811/kshsm.2014.8.1.113
The purpose this study was to investigate the relationship between Upper extremity's function and Activities of Daily Living(ADL) in stroke patients. The participants were 112 stroke patients who underwent occupational therapy. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple linear regression analysis. The results are as foolows. MFT of both unaffected upper limbs and affected upper limbs were significantly correlated with total MBI score. The all area of MFT on the affected upper limbs were significantly correlated with sub-item of MBI. And finger manipulation area of MFT on the unaffected upper limbs were significantly correlated with sub-item of MBI. Significant factors influencing MBI, both unaffected upper limbs and affected upper limbs total score. Significant factors influencing sub-items of MBI, the function of affected upper limbs by MFT were MBI all sub items exculsive bowel, bladder control and the function of unaffected upper limbs by MFT were personal hygiene, bathing, feeding, toilet, bowel & bladder control, chair/bed transfer of MBI sub items. Above results show that ADL is highly correlated with affected upper limbs and unaffected upper limbs function in the stroke patients.

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of timing of surgery on outcomes of spine operated patients for lumbar herniated intervertebral disc. The research design was cohort study and based on the data of claims for the medical expenses of health insurance. 21,475 cases who had primary spine surgery between January 1, and December 31, 2003, observed to conservative treatment period in the past two years from preoperative primary diagnosis to timing of primary surgery. According to one and five year follow up monitoring, the probability of occurrence of reoperation was not statistically significant with preoperative duration of symptom. Also one year follow up, the probability of occurrence of complication, was not statistically significant with preoperative duration of symptom. But five year follow up, groups who had one to two month preoperative duration of symptom decreased complication rate than less than a month(95%CI:0.594-0.927). Thus, from the onset of symptoms of back pain before primary surgery with enough and adequate time observation is required. Also, medical consumers or providers to choose surgery in determining prudence is required.
