Missing words for haloperidol dosage. The article “Delirium in Older Persons: Evaluation and Management” (August 1, 2014, p. 150) was missing words in Table 8 (p. 156) regarding the dosage for haloperidol. The first row of the column “Dosage” should have indicated that 0.5 to 1.0 mg of haloperidol be given twice daily orally, with additional doses every four hours as needed, or intramuscularly every 30 to 60 minutes as needed. The online version of this article has been corrected.
