Senior services include many things from intensive care to full rehabilitation. When we treat a patient, we treat the whole person from start to finish, wherever that finish may take him or her. We are constantly communicating with a patient’s home care provider or his or her family to better coordinate treatment following hospitalization.
Coliseum Northside Hospital has created a calm, nurturing atmosphere conducive to healing for senior patients. Located in a beautiful setting, with easy parking and access, Coliseum Northside Hospital is the ideal place for senior patients and their families to receive health care. And with a staff specially trained in geriatrics, seniors can be rest assured that they’ll receive the best care available. Our nursing staff has advanced gerontological education, making them experts in the care of our patients. Working with elderly patients, they are trained to understand immobility, instability, incontinence, and impaired memory concerns. Ongoing communication between staff and patients at Coliseum Northside Hospital ensures the continual success of the Senior Health program.
The geriatric rooms in Coliseum Northside Hospital were designed to provide a more peaceful, home-like environment that is optimal for healing. From the moment an elderly patient enters our hospital, he or she notices subtle differences from other healthcare facilities; for example, the walls were painted in earth tones to make the rooms more aesthetically pleasing. There are large clocks and televisions, more comfortable chairs for visitors and private restrooms. The emergency department has two rooms specially renovated with senior patients in mind. The safety of these patients is a priority.
