A cross-sectional research design with convenient sampling was done at a medical center in Taipei, Taiwan from the end of 2004 to early 2005. Data were collected from chart review and with a geriatric comprehensive assessment scale including the Mini Mental Status Examination, the Confusion Assessment Method, the short-form Geriatric Depression Scale, the Lawton's Instrumental Activity of Daily Living Scale, and the Barthel Index within 72 hours of admission. Telephone follow-up was also used in 90 days after discharge. Eighty-seven participants were enrolled with the average age of 78.25 ± 9.70 years old. The mean MMSE score was 20.80 ± 6.37 (4-30). Subjects performed best on the MMSE sub-dimension of information registration (54.02% correction rate) while "copy figure" was the dimension that most subjects failed to do (12.64% correction rate). The overall incidence of cognitive impairment among these subjects was 59.18% using the admission MMSE score of 23/24 as the cutoff point. The patients with older age (r = -.262, p).
