Addressing delirium in the hospitalized COVID-19 patient

September 22, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has created surges in inpatient census throughout the country, with hospitalizations often being prolonged. In addition, patient visitation by family, significant others, and friends has been prohibited due to this pandemic.

University of FL Shands developed a coordinated approach to address the care of patients experiencing delirium particularly when patients are isolated from family and significant others due to COVID-19.
