Dealing with the VERY geriatric patient. A discussion with Dr Brock

Dr Brock and I talk about a couple of VERY geriatric patients that we have dealt with in our careers.  These cases serve to illustrate the point that “age is not a disease” but, as Dr Brock says: “I sometimes need a reminder of that”.  We all have trepidations about dealing with very old patients; they can feel like they are a time bomb that we will be setting off.  

Watch the video, maybe our stories will help give you confidence in dealing with the next very old patient that needs your help.
