Geriatric Nursing is a specialty that improves the quality of life of older people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. Older heart failure and nursing care treatment is based on the severity of the congenital heart disease. Some mild heart defects do not require any treatment. Others can be treated with medications, invasive procedures or surgery. Most adults with congenital heart disease should be monitored by a heart specialist and may need to take precautions to prevent endocarditis (an infection of the heart) throughout their life. End of life care refers to health care, not only of patients in the final hours or days of their lives, but more broadly care of all those with a terminal illness or terminal condition that has become advanced, progressive and incurable. Fall prevention is a major component of patient safety. An adult-gerontology health nursing is a type of nurse practitioner that specializes in continuing and comprehensive healthcare for adults across the lifespan from adolescence to old age.
