As far as I know my mother was not prescribed statins during the last - highly drugged and controlled - years of her life. She was over prescribed unnecessary psychiatric drugs. None of the prescribed drugs were relevant to her closed head injury. She was never referred to a neurologist in spite of my many requests, and she never received speech therapy for the expressive aphasia that kept her even more imprisoned. My brother, a salesman for MetLife, ignored my requests for proper care and later claimed I refused to collaborate on my mother's care.
Bentley Care Center threatened my brother if my mother was taken off the half dozen+ drugs, telling him she would be forced to move. And most likely Medicare picked up the high priced tab for these drugs, a fraud in itself.
Elders aren't the only people who are over prescribed drugs by people who are not paying attention to the risks and hazards over time. Health Forensics helps prevent this.
