Public Service Announcement

It's 10pm.  Do you know where your senior citizens are?  

Trauma roster for the evening:

An 83 year old female who fell at home while walking without her cane.  Lac to the nose and a torn rotator cuff.

An 85 year old male who tripped on the rug and ended up with a nasty ankle fracture.

A fiercely-independent 92 year old female whose fall in the bathroom resulted in left hip and left shoulder fractures.

And finally...

A confused 78 year old female who somehow managed to find her way onto her son's treadmill, and ended up with a shoulder dislocation after falling off the back.
