Mental health problems are common in older people admitted to general hospitals. With an increasing ageing population, admissions will rise and nurses will be expected to manage patients' co-existing mental health problems as well as physical problems. This article explores potential strategies for the management of patients with depression, delirium and dementia. The emphasis is on improving quality of care for this group of vulnerable patients.
