Abstract

This department in Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging focuses on real-world difficult cases that clinicians have encountered in their practice. A case presentation will be followed by a discussion about the case that includes teaching points and clinical pearls from clinicians at collaborating medical schools. The case presentation in this article was written by a geriatrics fellow from the Cleveland Clinic, OH. The teaching points were prepared by faculty at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas; Madison VA Hospital, Madison, WI; and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison and Milwaukee. The discussion was compiled from a transcript of a monthly telephone conference hosted by Aurora Health Care.
