The National Canadian hospital takes action to prevent delirium

The Hamilton Health Sciences Centre is taking action to try and prevent delirium before the condition takes hold of the patient. It's being done using a program developed in the U.S. called the Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP). Each year in Canada 200,000 people who go to hospital may experience delirium, a serious disturbance in mental ability that can leave them confused and frightened.
