An 82-year-old man was brought to the emergency department by the police. He was found causing a disturbance in a supermarket. He was known to live alone and had no known family. His GP had recently referred him to the memory clinic and social services, but he had not yet been seen. His temperature was 38.5°C; he had a bruise over his right eye, and looked unkempt. He was resistant to any other examination or intervention and was fighting with staff and trying to leave the emergency department.
