New standards published today (Tuesday) for NHS Scotland aim to improve the care of older people in hospital. A key goal of the standards is strengthening the involvement of patients and carers in discussions and decisions about the care that is delivered.

NHS boards in Scotland are now expected to work towards meeting these standards. Background. There has been a recent movement in healthcare policy and practice towards providing additional patient-centred care (e.g. enhanced hospital discharge services, multidisciplinary working or home care), to support the needs of the growing population of older patients (people aged over 60) [1, 2].Suboptimal care of older people has been identified as a significant issue, Cited by: 2.

But for some older people, including those with long-term or complex conditions, advance planning may be needed to make sure the right support is available, in the right place and at the right time.

Charities are calling for older patients to be given a box of provisions when they are discharged from hospital similar to the “baby box” handed out to parents in Scotland with newborn children. Older hospital patients in England face a “widespread and systematic” pattern of inadequate care.

An estimated one million people in later life are affected by poor or inconsistent standards of dignity or help with eating in hospitals, according to a detailed statistical analysis of inpatient experience data in NHS hospitals in England.
