Calling all delirium heroes

13 March 2019

Logan Hospital’s Caring of the Cognitively Impaired Committee is dedicated to working towards better care for patients with delirium.

The Acute Care Services team is celebrating World Delirium Awareness Day today (March 13th) to increase awareness across our facility of patients presenting with delirium.

Advanced Occupational Therapist Simone Dullaway said delirium was a rapid change in brain function, which primarily affected the ability to focus attention.

She said it was possible for delirium to fluctuate over the course of a day with periods of lucidity followed by increased confusion.

"Delirium can lead to long-term function, cognition and social impairments as well as the need for long term care."
