Elderly residents of care homes are often frail and have progressive degenerative health problems. They take multiple medicines with an increased risk of adverse drug events. Their dependency and frequent cognitive impairment undermine their capacity to report symptoms. They therefore need regular review and adjustment of treatment. Previous studies have shown that only a minority of patients living at home have their medicines reviewed by their general practitioners. The National Service Framework for Older People proposed (without citing evidence of its value) regular review of care home residents and their treatment.
