In this article, the authors present quality and safety standards for older people in hospital, derived from a national dialogue involving inter-professional experts, key stakeholders and opinion leaders. They report the consensus process and present the standard statements with corresponding operational definitions, along with relevant clinical topics. This work can serve as a platform for service planners, evaluators and policy makers who are endeavouring to ensure that older people receive quality care and service when admitted to a Canadian hospital.
