Our team is dedicated for geriatric ED patient’s care and aimed to improve their overall health. We have the assessment and initial care coordination program for high-risk patients.
This precisely includes identification of patients with age 65 plus, who are at more risk for delirium, display functional and cognitive disability.
In SGVP Holistic Hospital, infrastructure is designed to reduce delirium provoking environmental stimuli, fall risk and improve communication for the hearing and visually impaired.
This also includes reducing surrounding noise and modified lighting with a “natural-light” to trigger deep sleep and maintain circadian rhythms.
Our department aim is to become a pioneer in geriatric emergency medicine clinical care, research, education, and innovation.
