Abstract: AIMS:To describe the prevalence of in-hospital delirium over a 5-year period (2018-2022), spanning the COVID period. Explore possible risk factors in order to improve early delirium detection, treatment and prevention. Conclusion: Older patients and patients with a longer length of stay in hospital tend to have a higher probability of delirium. Whilst there may be a potential connection between the incidence of delirium in older patients and increased length of stay, it does not imply that delirium was the cause. Improving time-stamped data capture would be beneficial to draw meaningful conclusions about cause and effect.
