Inpatient geriatric consultation
We perform full geriatric assessments of multiple problems affecting the cognitive and physical functions of medical and surgical patients. The purpose of our recommendations to attending physicians is to optimize and maintain patient autonomy.
Attending physicians or other health care professionals may consult the geriatric team.
4A Medicine Unit
Our unit admits patients aged 65 years or more arriving from their home or a senior’s residence. In addition to implementing personalized treatment plans, our inter-professional geriatric assessments help optimize each client’s functioning capability. Our purpose is to maintain the autonomy of seniors and keep them in their natural living environments.
This service is designed for our inpatients. Attending physicians and patient care teams must submit requests for transfer to the 4A medicine unit. Requests are reviewed by the Unit team.
