Abstract

A systematic approach by the individual clinician to his or her hospitalized older patients will identify many problems that affect both outcomes and costs. Such an approach will also provide an opportunity for the clinician to take steps to prevent iatrogenic injury. In addition, reengineering overall hospital systems of care - by constructing specialized Acute Care of Elders units for these vulnerable patients or by implementing nurse-based systems for discharge planning and follow-up - has the potential to improve outcomes and costs.
