Emergency rooms specifically designed for older patients are helping reduce hospital stays
New York City's Mount Sinai Medical Center Emergency Department is one of a growing number of medical centers nationwide that is specializing in geriatric emergency medicine. What does that mean? In practice, these are emergency rooms with care services designed specifically for older patients, including separate and customized physical spaces, enhanced support staff, and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plans modified specifically for the elderly. The goal is to refine treatment to ensure more older patients are able to go home after visiting the ER instead of beginning a hospital stay.
