Kognitive Defizite nach Krankenhausaufenthalt bei alten Menschen

The New Old Age Blog: After Hospitalization, Mental Trouble for Elderly Patients:

“Essentially, it’s as if people became 10 years older, from a cognitive standpoint, than they actually were before a hospitalization,” Dr. Wilson said.
Especially vulnerable to this effect were patients with more serious illnesses who stayed in the hospital for longer periods of time, and patients who started experiencing worsening memory and thinking problems before they were admitted.

Interessante Studie.
