Seniors more likely to fall when taking opioids after hospital treatment: Study

Seniors recovering from trauma after being admitted to hospitals may be more likely to have falls when taking prescribed opioids, according to a new study. While opioids are commonly used to manage acute pain, they can have harmful side effects, particularly for seniors. In this study, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, those who had filled an opioid prescription within two weeks preceding their injuries were 2.4 times more likely to have suffered a fall. The study looked at a decade of hospital records, between 2004 and 2014, for almost 68,000 people older than 65 in Quebec, Canada, who were admitted to the hospital after a trauma — a catch-all term that generally includes falls, car accidents and penetrating injuries.

Poland Shatters a Fragile Peace With Its Jews

Barbara Bush Was ‘First Lady of the Greatest Generation,’ Eulogist Says

Houston (AP) — Barbara Bush was remembered as the “first lady of the Greatest Generation” during a funeral Saturday attended by four former U.S. presidents and hundreds of other people who filled a Houston church with laughter as much as tears, with many recalling her quick wit and devotion to family. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush joked that his mother called her style of raising him and his siblings “‘a benevolent dictatorship’ — but honestly, it wasn’t always benevolent.” She was widely admired for her plainspoken style during her husband George H.W. Bush’s presidency and was known as “The Enforcer” in her high-powered family. Jon Meacham speaks during a funeral service for former first lady Barbara Bush at St. Martin’...
