Here’s the notice for “Issues Associated with Delirium Severity Among Older Patients,” which first appeared in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care:
This abstract has been retracted on the request of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
We regret to announce that we must retract this article because irregularities in the published data have been detected post-publication.
Here’s BMJ journal manager Claire Langford’s response to a request for more detail:
We were contacted by the authors institution – Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. – who notified us that the data included in the article was not correct; I understand there had also been some issues between the authors and the institution themselves.
The paper has yet to be cited, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
Neither the hospital nor the author has responded to requests for comment. We’ll update with anything we learn.
