To help care for the aging population, West Boca Medical Center has opened a Senior Care Emergency Room.
The Senior Care ER at West Boca Medical Center, will focus on emergency care for senior patients, and is designed to increase patient comfort as well as provide greater aid for this growing segment of the population.
“We are excited to be able to offer this enhanced service to our patients and their families,” said 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 the first program in Boca Raton exclusively dedicated to meeting the needs of patients age 65 and up. The Senior Care ER will include four 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.
You do not need an appointment to go to the ER, but you may have to wait if other patients have more pressing medical needs. There is an online scheduling tool InQuickER so you can set an appointment. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, such as a heart attack or stroke, it is important to call 911 for an ambulance instead of driving. This allows emergency medical services to begin treatment immediately.
