Core Tip Delirium is defined as a clinical syndrome characterised by disturbed consciousness, cognitive function or perception, which has an acute onset and fluctuating course. Delirium is common amongst patients admitted following proximal femoral fracture but is frequently unrecognised and mismanaged. Delirium can dramatically affect an individual’s stay in hospital. Delirium increases mortality and morbidity, leads to lasting cognitive and functional decline, and increases both length of stay and dependence on discharge. Delirium should be routinely and openly discussed by all members of the clinical team, including surgeons, physicians, anaesthetists, nurses and therapists. Simple strategies can be adopted to try and reduce the risk of delirium occurring and trying to manage delirium once it occurs.
