Responding to the Needs of SeniorsSenior-ER-Seal_350x350

Older adults may experience confusion or feel uncomfortable when visiting an emergency department. With complex medical histories, they often come to the hospital with multiple health issues. They may find it hard to express themselves under stress and too frequently don’t understand next steps when they return home.

Understanding the unique needs of seniors is why Premier Health voluntarily took the steps to achieve system-wide Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA). This distinction from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) recognizes emergency departments that provide excellent care for older adults. The bronze standard Level 3 Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation applies to all Premier Health emergency departments. Premier Health is the first health system in Ohio and the second in the nation to earn this recognition.

With enhanced staff education and senior-friendly equipment, we follow geriatric-focused policies and protocols that result in efficient preparation of the treatment area and seamless transitions of care. By providing this well-coordinated care, we offer seniors a better experience that can meaningfully influence their outcomes. Learn more.
