An 80-year-old woman has sought care for a dermatological health problem that most often requires treatment with an oral corticosteroid. When considering whether to prescribe steroids to this patient, the care provider should prioritize which of the following questions?
A)Should this patient receive a medication that was likely tested on younger adults?
B)Do the potential benefits of this medication outweigh the potential harm?
C)Are there plausible herbal or complementary alternatives to this medication?
D)Is there a younger adult who can oversee this patient's medication regimen?

Feedback:
The nurse and the prescriber must carefully consider the risk of associated adverse effects of those medications as well as possible benefits these medications might have in changing physiological processes related to disease. This consideration is a priority over the specifics of the drug's original testing procedure or the presence of herbal alternatives. Not every older adult requires another person to oversee his or her medications.
