Brief Summary in Lay Language

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of different orientation systems on the ability of geriatric patients to identify their allocated furniture (bed and closet) in inpatient double-occupancy rooms. An additional purpose is to examine whether an improved ability to identify furniture is linked to a higher degree of independence of these patients.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of different orientations systems (color, number, and name vs. no labeling) on the ability of geriatric patients to identify their allocated furniture (bed and closet) in inpatient double-occupancy rooms. An additional purpose is to examine whether an improved ability to identify furniture is linked to a higher degree of independence of these patients. All patients admitted to the geriatric ward of an acute care hospital will be recruited and asked for participation. Included patient will be interviewed twice during their hospital stay. The questions will be: Can you tell me, which bed/closet is yours? Information about their socio-demographic and cognitive characteristics as well as their functionality and mobility will be extracted from the medical record. Information about orientation problems and challenging behavior will be assessed by asking hospital staff. There will be three intervention groups and one control group in this study. The rooms are identical in size and furnishing and only differ in labeling of the furniture:
Intervention 1(two rooms): using color to differentiate furniture
Intervention 2(two rooms): using numbers to differentiate furniture
Intervention 3 (two rooms): using patients’ names to differentiate furniture
Control (two rooms): no changes made
