A novel care model was created to assess the effectiveness of OT as a nonpharmacologic, multicomponent intervention in the prevention and treatment of delirium in hospitalized patients. Given that “only 12 to 35% of delirium cases are recognized,” patients with “altered mental status” received priority evaluation from OT (Ramirez, 2014). Preliminary research has been promising and indicates benefits of OT utilization as an effective discipline in the treatment of delirium.
