Background and Objective: Potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) for older people lead to either potential or manifest drug-related problems in older patients. Potential drug-related problems might possibly lead to real problems for the patient while manifest drug-related problems already impact the patient. A drug-related hospital admission represents a significant consequence of manifest drug-related problems. Our objective was to identify the most common PIMs in the medication history of older patients admitted to University Hospital Hradec Králové and the most common PIMs that contributed to drug-related hospital admissions to University Hospital Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic.
