Sudershana P Lal and Prof.Dr.Anu V Kumar
Patients in hospitals suffering from dementia have extensive medical needs, making it challenging to provide them with acute nursing care. Despite advances in care, many older individuals continue to suffer from troublesome behaviours, slow cognitive loss, and functional degradation, all of which have a detrimental impact on their quality of life. Their already low quality of life is exacerbated by substandard medical care. This substantial and quickly rising public health concern affects patients, families, health care organisations, and society as a whole. These patients are at risk of obtaining suboptimal care from their health care providers due to a lack of knowledge of the causes of cognitive impairment and a misunderstanding of the nature of the problem. The goal of this article is to describe the difficulties that arise when providing care to hospitalised patients with dementia and delirium that is superimposed on dementia; nursing assessments, problem identification, and interventions for dementia and delirium that may promote quality of life and care; and synthesised recommendations to guide clinical practise.
