interRAI Acute Care (AC) Assessment Form and User’s Manual, (Standard English Edition), 9.3.0
The interRAI Acute Care (AC) assessment is a key component of the interRAI Hospital Assessment Systems. It is designed for use among all adult patients who are admitted for an overnight stay in hospital. The interRAI AC is designed to form part of the general nursing admission assessment that is offered to all adult patients on arrival at an inpatient unit. The interRAI AC is to be used alongside other nursing assessment information that usually includes biometric (for example, pulse and blood pressure) and administrative information. The interRAI AC comprises two forms: the Admission Form is completed when the patient arrives at the inpatient unit, and the Discharge Form is completed on the day of discharge.
PLEASE NOTE: This version of the interRAI AC is a completely new instrument. The former interRAI AC version 9.1 has been renamed the interRAI Acute Care for Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (AC-CGA) – a system designed to support assessment of older patients with complex needs. However, if you are looking for the interRAI AC version 9.1, it is still available for sale. Please click here for AC 9.1.
