OBJECTIVE: This article reviews the literature on the use of marijuana in the elderly.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally found in very few food sources. It is produced endogenously from ultraviolet light from the sun striking the skin and then triggering vitamin D synthesis and activation. Vitamin D helps promote calcium absorption in the gut, maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate levels, promotes bone growth, modulates cell growth, and has many other roles. There have been an increasing number of people, especially in older adults, with vitamin D deficiency. This is in part a result of a reduction of sun exposure as people age, increase in use of sunscreen, and other factors...

Wandering away from home or facilities is dangerous for patients with dementia and stressful for families and caregivers when those who go missing cannot be located. Up to 60% of Alzheimer's disease patients wander, and up to 50% of those who are not found within 24 hours face serious injury or death. Currently, no effective drug therapies exist to abate wandering, which has multiple causes, but emerging technologies offer a promise of comfort in being able to easily locate a missing loved one. As of 2012, 41 states had enacted Silver Alert programs that broadcast information about missing, vulnerable adults...

Adverse drug events (ADE) are a leading cause of mortality in the United States. Recent studies have demonstrated a high level of complex medication regimens in institutionalized residents. Evidence of the relationship between medication regimen complexity (MRC) and ADE-related rehospitalizations or emergency department (ED) visits is evolving. Therefore, there is a demand for better characterization and study of MRC as an objective identifier to quickly screen and prioritize high-risk patients for follow-up medication management therapy...

Five new drugs marketed within the last year that are used for medical problems often experienced by the elderly have been selected for consideration in this review. The uses and most important properties of these agents are discussed, and a rating for each new drug is determined using the New Drug Comparison Rating system developed by the author (DAH). Advantages, disadvantages, and other important information regarding each new drug are identified and used as the basis for determining the rating. The drugs include two antidiabetic agents, an agent for gout, an antipsychotic agent, and a drug for dry eye disease...

Chad Worz, Josh Postolski, Kevin Williams
BACKGROUND: It is the current practice in most long-term care facilities to use manual logs when documenting refrigerator temperatures. This process is commonly associated with poor or fabricated compliance, little oversight, and documentation errors, both because of overt omissions and unsubstantiated values. It is also well-established that medication storage requirements are mandated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This analysis demonstrates the potential risk of poor cold-chain management of medications and establishes the possible utility of digitally recorded continuous temperature monitoring over manual logs...

Pyelonephritis is the progression of a urinary tract infection (UTI) to the kidney. In younger patients the infection may not be as severe and may even be treated with oral antibiotics. However, in elderly males pyelonephritis can be more complex and may require hospitalization and treatment with intravenous antibiotics. In the United States UTIs are responsible for frequent visits to emergency departments by elderly individuals. Current literature suggests that pyelonephritis in elderly males is a serious infection that may result in significant morbidity and mortality...
