Posted by Regarding older patients (as ),
Older people, especially men, can easily disguise their understanding of procedures and instructions. They either do not hear, do not listen, do not understand or do not want to understand. There needs to be a policy that covers this and older people should not be discharged from hospital until the carer has also been given instructions upon discharge.
