Study shows the relationship between seniors and medications
July 16, 2018
A study by the National Institutes of Health found nearly all senior citizens in this country take medication on a daily basis… many take more than one kind. The study also determined more than half are taking their medication incorrectly; everything from the wrong dosage to confusing one medication for another. The most common problem is the interaction of medications and that can have serious consequences. We look at how one hospital is helping seniors keep track of their medicine and avoid the danger.
