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.
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.
