STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS

CLASS: I am certain that most of you have encountered a patient like Fred.  They are vibrant and engaged elderly people who suffer a fall and sustain what can be life threatening injuries.  His situation is complicated by his age (the condition of his vital organs and musculoskeletal system), his previous medical history and his current medication regimen.   Be sure to consider each of these complications as you create your plan for his nursing care.
