The interRAI Acute Care (AC) Assessment v 9.3 is a comprehensive assessment system designed to support assessment of all adults admitted to the acute care setting. Its primary purpose is to identify clinical, functional and psychosocial problems, including to screen for syndromes such as delirium, dementia and under-nutrition, and to identify patients at risk of adverse events such as delirium, falls and pressure ulcers. Research has demonstrated that, although these problems are more common among hospitalized older patients, they are also becoming increasingly common in younger hospitalized patients.
The interRAI AC Assessment System also includes a range of scales to measure problem severity, measures to understand pre-morbid function, and a set of quality indicators to appraise the overall care provided to adult patients in acute care settings.
