Dementia guide: commitment to the care of people with dementia in hospital settings – Royal College of Nursing – 9 October 2012

Abstract:

“Dementia is a challenge for hospitals. Surveys show that around a quarter of hospital beds are occupied by somebody with dementia; a figure which increases in older people and individuals with a superimposed delirium. This important resource supports the further implementation of the RCN’s five principles for improving the quality of care for people with dementia and enabling the best possible support for their carers. This guide supplements the RCN’s film: Dementia: Commitment to the care of people with dementia in hospital settings.”
