Abstract: Older hospitalized patients are at risk of functional decline, which is associated with several negative outcomes. The aim of this study was to compare the predictive accuracy of the Identification of Seniors At Risk (ISAR), Variable Indicative for Placement risk (VIP) and the Flemish version of the Triage Risk Screening Tool (TRST) in predicting functional decline.
