Senior ER

The same great care, with seniors in mind

As our population ages, we have advanced our services to accommodate the needs of older adults in our community. The Senior Emergency Room at Coral Gables Hospital opened to serve these patients, with a focus on increasing comfort and providing better medical services. The ER is customized for those who may have vision or hearing impairments. Coral Gables Hospital has also joined forces with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care For Healthsystem Elders), a national program geared toward improving care for older hospitalized adults.

Features of our Senior ER include:

  • Specialized nurse and physician training to improve care for the elderly
  • Large-faced clocks, calendars, boards and vital information posted throughout the ER
  • Large keyboards on telephones
  • Nonskid floor surfaces to help prevent falls
  • Landscape lighting in rooms for comfort
  • Sound resistant rooms
  • Thicker mattresses for comfort

…all provided with your needs in mind. Because when you visit the emergency room, getting healthy and back to your life is all you should need to worry about.
