Beginning in 2011, we implemented a nursing-driven hospitalwide delirium program targeting improvements in risk identification, prevention, detection, and treatment. Over the course of the program, delirium falls decreased from 0.91 to 0.50 per patient day (P = .0002). A decrease in overall falls was also noted (P = .0007). © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
