Delirium detection by nurses
Nurses in long-term care may need more education and on-site training to enable more accurate detection of delirium in elderly residents. In this study, trained research assistants identified delirium more accurately than nurses. Outcomes of delirium depend upon early diagnosis and intervention, so there is a real need to boost nurses' knowledge and detection.
