This paper presents the case study of a hospitalized 85 year old female who experienced a fall and presented at the hospital 12 days later with a laundry list of diagnostic issues. The patient complained of confusion, and instability (even though she walks with assistance). As reported by this paper, it was felt that her medication contributed to the neurological and cardiac issues she was having, although she had them before and the medication she was prescribed was contraindicated. Nursing considerations are provided.
