Medication Management

An often-overlooked medical practice is medication management. As our health changes over time, so do the substances we put into our body.

Nearly one-third of older home health care patients have a potential medication problem or are taking a drug considered inappropriate for older people. 15 Elderly home health care patients are especially vulnerable to adverse events from medication errors; they often take multiple medications for a variety of comorbidities that have been prescribed by more than one provider. The majority of older home health care patients routinely take more than five prescription drugs, and many patients deviate from their prescribed medication regime.11 The potential of medication errors among the home health care population is greater than in other health care settings because of the unstructured environment and unique communication challenges in the home health care system. 11 Ellenbecker CH, Samia L, Cushman MJ, et al.
