Delirium is an important complication that is frequently encountered in geriatric patients in the postoperative period and is characterized by increased unfavorable patient outcomes, causing repeated hospital admissions, increased costs of surgery and care, and decreased quality of life. Nurses play a key role in the provision of care for this complication, which affects patients and their families unfavorably in every aspect from the diagnosis to the management of postoperative delirium. In this review, it is aimed to discuss postoperative delirium and nursing interventions in geriatric patients in line with current and evidence-based information.
