Making a Critical Difference for Seniors
In response to the needs of an aging population Saint Alphonsus Health System is the first in Idaho and Oregon to open Senior ER’s™ within all our current emergency departments
Saint Alphonsus Senior ER’sTM address the special medical needs, preferences and physical comforts of older adults. Beyond the typical ER visit, where staff focus on treating the medical issue at hand, the Senior ER goes deeper, assessing and addressing root causes for each visit.
To create the Saint Alphonsus Senior ER, we implemented fundamental changes in our culture, physical environment and operations. Each Senior ER is run by a specially trained care team focused on providing a better, gentler, more patient-centered experience that produces better patient outcomes.
Emergency Nurses have completed indepth courses on Geriatric Emergency Nursing Education
Emergency physicians have specialized knowledge in the care of seniors
Pharmacists may review medications that could pose a problem or may have contributed to the patient’s ER visit
Licensed social workers or case managers may be available to discuss care options and screenings with both the patient and the caregiver
Facility modifications have been made to address the safety, comfort and communication for seniors, and may include:
quieter setting for care
pressure reducing mattresses
hearing and vision aids
appropriate flooring and lighting
