During the research forum yesterday one of the presenters was discussing his research into 'causes of falls' in the elderly.
"What causes the elderly to fall at home is not what most people think...it's not loose carpet, or loose buttons, loose cats, or loose women....it's a variety of causes, one being orthostatic hypotension."
And today during clinical skills as my instructor was searching for my pedal pulse...I apologized for him having to get so close to my pegs as he demoed 'inspecting' my feet for ulcers, etc. and he replied,
"Oh don't worry honey, I'd take feet over vaginas or mamms any day of the week"
*Proof that this Irish education is starting to rub off on me.
