Internal Medicine – Day 10

Up to this point, there are certain cases that for me only lived in board exam practice questions and lectures. Elder abuse was one of them. When the admission came in we were told there was some concern for neglect, but I really didn’t anticipate the extent to which it turned out to be and the potentially malicious nature of what may be going on. When I was actually able to get a seemingly reliable account of what was going on, it was heartbreaking. It almost didn’t feel real as I was asking question to the witness and hearing their account.

People can be scary.
