We aimed to describe the clinical presentations of COVID-19 in older inpatients with regard to frailty measured by the record-based Multidimensional Prognostic Index (rMPI) tool and to explore possible associations between frailty level and decision of treatment level, change in physical functional abilities and survival. Subsequently, the predictive values of rMPI and Clinical Frailty Scale were compared.
