Transcript:
DONALD A. B. LINDBERG: What clinical areas were ones that you focused on?
JOHN M. PACKARD: On stroke we funded a very innovative program that was developed at the VA Hospital in Tuscaloosa called Reality Orientation. In brief, there were not only signs everywhere that said, "Today is Monday, November the 11th," but everybody that worked on the ward in these geriatric wards or the nursing homes would say, "Mr. Jones, your bed has the red bed cover. Today is Monday..." It proved to reduce the need for sedatives for these old patients. The turnover of the nurses' aides and other personnel dropped way down. People enjoyed working there. And that program was used all over the states and still is.
