A medical emergency that occurs in up to 56% of hospitalized older adults, delirium can be frightening for both patients and for family members who observe it in their loved ones. Delirium exacts a high economic price with estimated annual U.S. healthcare expenditures ranging from $143 to $152 billion.
Nurses can play a key role in identifying risk factors, detecting symptoms early, implementing nonpharmacologic interventions promptly, and educating family members about the disorder.
