CAM-S Confusion Assessment Method
[select name="Q1" value="absent (0)=0|present (1)=1"] <-- Acute onset of symptom fluctuation
[select name="Q2" value="absent (0)=0|mild (1)=1|marked (2)=2"] <-- Inattention
[select name="Q3" value="absent (0)=0|mild (1)=1|marked (2)=2"] <-- Disorganized thinking
[select name="Q4" value="absent (0)=0|mild (1)=1|marked (2)=2"] <-- Altered level of consciousness
Score --> [calc memo="number" value="score1=(Q1)+(Q2)+(Q3)+(Q4)"] / 7 (higher scores are predictive of increasing length of stay as well as the relative risk of death or nursing home placement within 90 days)
