  • Health and social care professionals welcome findings from Northern Ireland Audit of Dementia Care in Acute Hospitals | HSC Public Health Agency
    a wide range of elements of dementia care including staffing levels staff training nutrition ward environments discharge and palliative care Eleanor Ross Nurse Consultant with the Public Health Agency said Hospitals are experiencing an increase in the number of admissions of people with dementia Approximately 21 29 of adults aged over 70 years admitted to hospitals have dementia Admission to hospital is a stressful and distressing experience for these patients and the information identified in the audit report provides us with a clear set of recommendations which will enable us to bring significant improvements in the acute hospital setting It is clear from the report that Northern Ireland compares positively with the findings from the Republic of Ireland England and Wales however gaps have been identified It is important therefore that we address the need to raise knowledge and develop the support mechanisms which improve the experience of people with dementia when they are in hospital Key considerations of the audit were the identification of the structures and resources available to meet the needs of patient with dementia and assessment of levels of care provided to patients with dementia Seamus McErlean Commissioning Lead for Older People and Adult Services at the Health and Social Care Board said This audit brings additional focus to the work currently being undertaken across a range of professional groups and agencies to implement the regional dementia strategy The report s findings reflect favourably on hospital services here when compared with elsewhere however there is much to be done By improving understanding of dementia and promoting awareness amongst staff across a range of professions working in hospital services we can ensure that people with dementia receive improved levels of care treatment and support The report of the Northern Ireland Audit of Dementia Care 2015 is available
