Since many seniors come to a hospital through the Emergency Department, we designed a special 6-room unit to meet the unique needs of older patients.
Each room offers:
- Spacious accommodations with slip-resistant flooring.
- Scales built into the beds so patients can be weighed in place – reducing the risk of falls.
- Pressure-relieving mattresses to reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcers.
- Windows with views to help patients acclimate to their surroundings and the time of day, helping to alleviate stress.
- Its own toilet facility to help increase privacy and convenience.
