Costs of complications in hospitalised dementia patients

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Increased length of stay and high rates of adverse clinical events in hospitalised patients with dementia is stimulating interest and debate about which costs may be associated and potentially avoided within this population. A retrospective
cohort study (Bail et al. 2015) was designed to identify and compare estimated costs for older people in relation to hospital-acquired complications and dementia.
