From this study (1 month ago):
My grandmother (94 years old and 95 pounds) is currently in a rehabilitation facility after a hospital stay for a UTI she suffered. She was fine at the hospital but has now been given the Fentanyl Patch, along with a much stronger dose of Vicodin for her pain and suddenly became delusional and is loudly moaning incoherent gibberish for hours straight. She is now refusing food and medication. I completely understand that she is 94 years of age but this came on so suddenly and I feel that she may be overmedicated. I also know that UTI's can cause some of these symptoms but she has been treated for that and in the past has suffered mild symptoms and once treated bounces back.
