AbstractA mentally incapacitated 82-year-old man with no relatives was managed by a geriatrician-led multidisciplinary team when medical staff realised he was at risk of being exploited. They initiated a series of protective measures including an emergency guardianship application. The Guardianship Board appointed the Director of Social Welfare as his public guardian. This case illustrates that hospital staff should be alert to potential elder abuse to ensure timely protection of potential victims.
