New Quality Standard on Delirium from Ontario Health

Provincial Geriatrics Leadership Ontario has been pleased to partner with Ontario Health  in the development of the Delirium Quality Standard, released today.

Delirium is often a complication of respiratory illnesses, such as pneumonia, in older adults. Early studies indicate between 20% and 30% of people with COVID-19 will present with or develop delirium or mental status changes during hospitalization.
