Abstract

Gross et al reported that those who developed in-hospital delirium experienced cognitive deterioration at twice the rate in the following year compared with those who did not develop delirium. The authors adjusted their analyses for a range of clinically important factors. However, the study did not consider the impact of prescribed drugs.
