Suppose this individual demonstrated some degree of cognitive impairment and had a long standing chronic mental health diagnosis such as OCD or bipolar disease. How would one recognize delirium and mental illness in the patient who also demonstrated cognitive impairment from the MMSE data? Would the findings in the MMSE be different? In what ways? How do the goals of treatment differ in the elderly patient with CI, delirium, and mental illness superimposed on other chronic conditions?
