As the Canadian population ages, it becomes increasingly important for hospitals to address and implement programs and policies that ensure elderly patients are receiving the right care in the right place at the right time. Despite the vast majority of elderly patients being healthier than ever, it is important to recognize the rapid deconditioning that occurs when they are admitted to an acute care hospital. Although it is recognized that children need to be treated differently, we fail to recognize the same is true for older adults.
