Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Acute illness and hospitalization have been linked to an increased risk of cognitive decline, particularly for older adults. Acutely ill patients may have pre-existing memory impairments from conditions such as dementia or new memory changes due to the acute condition, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, or hypoxic respiratory failure.
