Costs of potentially inappropriate medication use in residential aged care facilities

pill-1884775_1920

This review found that the use of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) for older adults in residential care facilities is high and that these medications represent a substantial cost which has the potential to be lowered. Further research should investigate whether medication reviews in this population could lead to potential cost savings and improvement in clinical outcomes.
