Standards of Nursing Care

All patients should be assessed for risk factors for delirium on presentation/admission to a healthcare setting.

All patients with risk factors for delirium should have a delirium assessment on admission and if their clinical condition changes.

Recognised risk factors for Delirium include:

  • Age 65 older
  • Cognitive impairment and or dementia (past or present)
  • Current hip fracture
  • Severe clinical condition (deteriorating or at risk of deteriorating)

Example delirium /dementia assessment tools include :

  1. Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (DSM-V) criteria.
  2. CAM (Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) is a standardized evidence-based tool that enables non-psychiatrically trained clinicians to identify and recognize delirium quickly and accurately in both clinical and research settings.
  3. 4AT assessment - Assessment test for delirium & cognitive impairment.

Identifying patients with dementia/delirium

Many healthcare organisations use a purple butterfly symbol to identify patients with dementia so nurses and other care givers can readily identify their need for specific assistance and care inteventions.

The Delirium and Dementia Audit software assists with monitoring and evidencing compliance with these and many other recognised standards for caring for those with dementia or delirium.
