A 74-year-old male was hospitalized following a stroke caused by atrial fibrillation. During the hospitalization he had contracted pneumonia and was diagnosed with accelerated hypertension. He underwent one week of inpatient rehabilitation and after being released, the patient wanted to return to driving. The condition he was in, and the medications he was taking, suggested he could no longer drive safely.
