Background: over 60% of older people have at least one admission to hospital in their last year of life, with the majority of people having multiple admissions. In Bankstown, New South Wales, Australia, we have a diverse ethnic and cultural population. We were interested in bed utilisation, documentation, and follow through of âcare plansâ as well as ânot for resuscitationâ orders in the last year of life of the older people in our area.
