Before I tell you....

I know from multiple first hand stories that our rest homes were pushing hard to CV V every single resident, irrespective of how frail or elderly they were.
Many families were fighting (sometimes losing) wars with the NZ rest homes to prevent their frail parents from having the CV VX.

Our own Medsafe say this on the technical data sheet....
The data is limited for use in the frail elderly. The potential benefits of the V verses the potential risk and clinical impact of even relatively MILD systemic events in the frail elderly should be carefully assessed on a CASE BY CASE BASIS.
