Report of the national audit of dementia care in general hospitals 2011

Royal College of Psychiatrists

From The King’s Fund: 
This audit has identified a need for significant improvements in hospital ward environments, staff training and the overall approach to care delivery for patients with dementia. Although the majority of wards meet basic safety requirements, it shows that many had not addressed simple measures that could lessen the distress caused to dementia patients by an unfamiliar and confusing hospital environment. It also reveals deficiencies in staff training.
