Catering to the elderly in the ED
from Modern Healthcare
St. Joseph's University Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey, was one of the first geriatric emergency departments in the U.S. The ED, which opened in 2009, was built in response to complaints from elderly patients that the adult ED was chaotic and stressful. St. Joseph's relied mostly on patient recommendations to determine what services would be part of the geriatric ED. No industry guidelines were available at the time.
