Journal Article (Journal Article)

This quality improvement project was designed to implement a sit-to-stand exercise program delivered by nursing assistants in an assisted living facility. The primary outcome was for residents to either improve or maintain function in activities of daily living. The findings of this program have implications for nursing and the role that nursing assistants can play in promoting exercise and thus preventing avoidable decline in institutionalized residents.
