Elder abuse and neglect.

Elder Abuse and Neglect

You are a charge nurse in the emergency department. An elderly woman arrives with bruises all over the upper torso of her body and down her left arm. She was brought in by her grandson who resides with her, and the grandson shares that he brought her in to be checked out because he thinks she may have fractured her wrist when she fell on the last step going down in the cellar to do laundry. He appears extremely stressed and states that his grandmother suffers from Alzheimer disease. When you put the patient’s name and demographic information into the electronic medical record it indicates that this patient was in 2 weeks prior with a concussion.
