Experts push for hospital care for elderly that involves staying active
from Healthcare Finance
At UAB Hospital-Highlands' 26-bed geriatric unit, known as the Acute Care for Elders unit, or ACE, patients are encouraged to start moving as soon as they arrive. The unit is one of a few hundred around the U.S. that is attempting to provide better and more tailored care to geriatric patients. The hospital opened the unit in 2008 with the recognition that the elderly population was growing and that many older patients didn't fare well in the hospital.
