Senior Care ER Designed to Address the Complex Needs of Older Adults

Boca Raton, Fla .- (October 18, 2017) - West Boca Medical Center is adapting to accommodate the needs of our aging population by opening a Senior Care Emergency Room (ER). The Senior Care ER at West Boca Medical Center, will focus on emergency care for senior patients, and is designed to increase patient comfort, and provide greater aid for this growing segment of our population.

“We are excited to be able to offer this enhanced service to our patients and their families,” says Mitch Feldman, CEO at West Boca Medical Center. “Our goal is to provide the best quality care possible to our patients at every age.”

The Senior Care Emergency Room is exclusively dedicated to meeting the needs of patients age 65 and up. The Senior Care ER will include 4 private bays and will be equipped to help increase patient comfort and reduce wait time. The Senior ER Care team consists of board-certified emergency physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and case managers to help ensure excellent patient care and coordinated after-care follow up.

It will have soothing lights, nonskid floor surfaces to help prevent falls, thicker mattresses for comfort, easy access lounge chairs, and handrails throughout the ER to make our senior patients feel as comfortable as possible while we care for them.
