    Well, you certainly don't give us much to go on here.

    First, how old is this person and why are they in the hospital to begin with?

    Head Injury?

    Auto Accident?

    Anorexia and poor diet leading to an electrolyte imbalance?

    Have they had surgery and are post anesthesia?

    You give us NOTHING to go on.....can't answer.

      You ask if "it could be cured".....Can't respond to that question either unless we know the diagnosis and at least the reason for hospitalization.

    Disorientation can occur with most physical traumas, medication, brain damage and a hundred other things.

    'It could be done' they were just messing with you.

    The confusing part is how many people you are talking about. One person is he or she. If you had asked ' What makes a person confused when he is in hospital?' it would be easier to comprehend the question. 

    Confusion can be caused by many things, including bad grammar.

    The hospital does give strong medicine that people normally couldn't get without a prescription. Not only that, but they put it straight into your vein through a catheter, which makes it stronger.

    If someone who is not normally confused gets confused when they are in the hospital, it's probably the medication or it could be worry and lack of sleep.
