To ask the Scottish Government what research it (a) has commissioned or plans and (b) is aware of regarding the impact of people recovering from operations being placed in small wards with disruptive patients who have dementia.

Answered by Jamie Hepburn (09/11/2015):

The Scottish Government has not commissioned research on the impact on patients of being placed in small wards with disruptive patients who have dementia. Significant work has been undertaken to improve the care of people with dementia in acute hospitals as part of Scotland's second dementia strategy. This includes minimising and responding appropriately to stress and distress of patients with dementia.
