Dementia and motor vehicle crash hospitalizations: role of physician reporting laws.
This study sought to determine the effect of physician reporting laws and state licensing requirements on crash hospitalizations among drivers with dementia. It concluded that physician reporting laws, mandated or legally protected, were not associated with a lower likelihood of dementia among crash hospitalized drivers. Vision testing at in-person renewal and in-person renewal requirements were significantly related with a lower prevalence of dementia in hospitalized older drivers.
