Delirium: What are the options?
from MedPage Today
Each year, over 7 million patients present with delirium in hospital settings, and nearly half of those have persistent delirium at discharge, according to data from the American Delirium Society. But the real numbers may be much higher: As many as 2 in 3 patients with delirium may not be recognized as delirious by healthcare professionals, in part because of a lack of validated tools for properly managing delirious patients, or possibly because some practitioners don't recognize the condition when they see it.
