Am Fam Physician. 2015 Sep 15;92(6):430a.

Omitted sentence about preventive therapy for delirium. The article “Delirium in Older Persons: Evaluation and Management,” (August 1, 2014, page 150) had a missing sentence in the second paragraph of the section under “Treatment in Various Settings” (p. 156). After the fourth sentence, the following sentence should have appeared: “Preliminary evidence suggests that melatonin and melatonin agonists may help prevent delirium in hospitalized elderly patients.42” The online version of this article has been corrected.
