According to a new study, ingesting potentially inappropriate medicine (PIM) can lead to a high risk of fractures and mortality. It is associated with a higher risk of fracture-specific hospitalisations and high hospital costs as well as mortality. PIMs are defined as medicines with potential risks higher than their clinical benefits. Potentially inappropriate medicine prescriptions always require clinical grounds, which then take into account the risks associated to the medical treatments.
