Setting standards for long term care of the elderly in hospital.
We derived a manageable number of standards for the wards that most of the staff and patients agreed with.
The patients had lower expectations than the staff.
Although we cold not obtain the views of most of the patients in the wards, mainly because of cognitive impairment, we believe that most of the standards would improve the patients' quality of live-not by imposing practice on them but by increasing their opportunities.
