One of the major problems in modern geriatrics is falling syndrome that frequently results in the patient’s long-term forced lying position, which in turn favors the development of delirium that occurs in 50% of patients with acute femoral neck fracture and in 20-30% during postoperative hospitalization. The hazard of delirium as a geriatric syndrome is the lower control of a patient over his behavior, progressive chronic cognitive impairments, and increased dependence upon others, which is highly undesirable during his care at home or elderly and disabled people homes.
