Direct Causes of Harm:

  • Inadequate assessment and treatment  

  • The rapid pace and technological focus of modern hospital care makes good clinical assessment and treatment more difficult in older people with dementia. 

  • Often unable to communicate their needs

  • Cognitive impairment creates barriers to safety

  • Doctors and nurses spend less time with confused than with non- confused patients

Frequently, underlying serious illness in these patients is not recognized
