MMI Scenario 6
Vera Wilkes, 78, has just been admitted onto your acute medical unit (AMU) following a fall sustained whilst climbing the staircase in her home. You are the pre-registration pharmacist on the unit and have been tasked by the ward doctor to undertake a drug history. You have no records for this patient to hand and are expected to safely obtain an accurate list of her current medications. What sources of information can be used to obtain her accurate drug history? What are the risks and limitations associated with each option?
