Senior Emergency Services

Senior Emergency Services in the ER at West Florida Hospital Provides a New Standard of Care for Geriatric Patients and Their Families

Older adults are at greater risk for cognitive and functional decline due to a combination of vulnerability, frailty and acute illness. Given the growth in the elderly population, changes in geriatric patient care will impact every level of health care delivery. By addressing those needs in the emergency setting, hospitals can dramatically improve the transition back to home or other health care setting, minimize emergency room “bounce–back,” and better prepare caregivers for whatever is to come.
