Abstract

The confused elderly are often a challenge for the medical professionals to manage. The presence of delirium is often missed, dementia is often underdiagnosed and the confused elderly with agitation and aggression are often ignored or restrained either physically or chemically in an acute hospital setting. Careful work up for delirium, drug review and getting the diagnosis right is of paramount importance in the management of a confused elderly.
