Abstract

The purpose of this guideline is to provide NHSScotland with advice on presentations and management of COVID-19 in older patients in acute care.
This guideline is for:
• health and care practitioners
• health and care staff involved in planning and delivering services
• national procurement teams.
These recommendations have been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation and so have not followed the standard process used by SIGN to develop guidelines. The recommendations are based on available evidence and expert opinion, with fast expert peer review as assurance.
This guidance will be reviewed and updated as new evidence emerges.
