Head injuries in the older person

You are on standby crewed with a trainee technician when the radio goes off ……. an 85 year old female who has fallen, husband and carer on scene. Your initial examination indicates that the patient has experienced a minor mechanism of injury, has no neurological red flags and appears to have normal observations – can she be discharged into family care? What else should you be taking into consideration?
