Mercy St. Anne Hospital
Senior Emergency Room
Our Senior ER rooms are specially-designed with:
- calming paint schemes
- non-skid flooring
- thicker, pressure-reducing mattresses
- easy to read clocks
- new TV sets with easy-to-use remote controls
- additional, more comfortable seating for family members and more
|After receiving care, our staff provides patients and their families or caregivers with a special discharge package that includes large print/patient-friendly follow up care instructions, a loyalty program check-in card for future visits and other special gifts.|
Senior ER patients receive help with discharge planning including rehabilitation, long-term care, and insurance/billing issues to ensure that they are well-prepared to leave the hospital and are less likely to have to be readmitted to the ER.
Our goal is to reduce our senior patients' possible anxiety during an ER experience, better understand their condition and medical needs, provide the best possible care, and lower their chance of readmission.
