    From the days of "Reefer Madness" until the timing of Proposition 19 with the "Legalization of Marijuana Initiative" on the ballot last November, the controversies swirling around not only the recreational use, but also the medical use of marijuana, particularly in frail, elderly geriatric patients with clinically significant weight loss (and cachexia), has been fraught with controversy. Even though the ballot initiative from 2010 went down in defeat on November 2, 2010, rumblings of some of the authors bringing another, more "targeted" CA initiative in 2012 are regaining momentum.

    A disturbing trend has emerged involving criminal charges being levied against family caregivers treating end-of-life (EOL) elders with dementia.

    1/20/2015 · Brain Injury
    A concussion results from a direct injury or indirect impulsive force resulting in rapid neurologic dysfunction, and is better characterized as minimal traumatic brain injury (MTBI)1-4 MTBI is typically functional and not structural and undergoes a sequential process of recovery with a subset of victims who have prolonged or permanent symptoms.

    12/12/2014 · Medical
    The future condition of pediatric patients discharged from the emergency department can never be guaranteed even when the diagnosis has been clearly defined. As a result we are dependent on our clinical judgement of the patient's stability as well as the understanding and capability of the parents in safely discharging pediatric patients. Up to 75% of patients/ parents do not understand the instructions given at the time of emergency department discharge and not surprisingly almost all malpractice complaints arising from the emergency department have incomplete discharge instructions as a component [1].
