Operating a busy emergency room in Denver gave us plenty of insight on the specific needs of our growing senior community. As the next wave of our 65 and older community comes to us with their medical needs, we’re prepared to help them. Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital is tuned in to our seniors.
By implementing a philosophy of care for the geriatric patient and implementing a variety of screenings designed for the senior population, physicians hope that their senior E.R. will help lower readmission rates and reduce the risk of harmful drug interactions.
Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital's Senior ER is a special place with dedicated physicians and nurses to this unit who've completed a superior curriculum specifically designed for the team at Saint Joseph Hospital. In addition, physicians and nurses took workshops in sensory appreciation and ageism to learn how to better communicate with older adults and their caregivers.
