Saint Agnes Associates News & Updates
Saint Agnes is proud to announce that we will open a new Senior Emergency Department on June 17, 2015, to improve the delivery of care to more than 8,000 senior adults who visit Saint Agnes’ ED each year. The first specialized Senior ED to open in Baltimore and only the second in the state of Maryland, the Senior Emergency Department was developed with a focus on efficient design and construction, enhanced staff training and an improved experience tailored to the physical, psychological and social needs of the aging population.
The Senior Emergency Department consists of seven private rooms, a centralized nursing station, and medication and nutrition alcoves that are in close proximity to patients. It was designed to decrease negative stimuli and meet needs that are specific to the aging population:
The Senior Emergency Department also has a designated social worker and a partnership with the pharmacy to review prescriptions of patients who are on multiple medications.
The emergency department staff, which are already highly trained in their field, including specialized care for pediatric and chest pain patients, went through a rigorous training session on the complexity of senior care. The staff learned about screening tools, geriatric syndromes, ageism, discrimination and other lifestyle and medical concerns that affect the aging population, with the ultimate goals of improving patient satisfaction, decreasing admissions, providing a seamless transition back to the home and enhancing care management for elderly patients throughout the entire ED.
Coming on the heels of the hospital’s new patient-centered medical home in Saint Agnes Medical Group, Catonsville, the Senior Emergency Department was also built around the patient-centered model. In collaboration with the Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC, Saint Agnes designed a team-based approach to diagnosis, counseling, treatment and follow-up of elder patients. The Senior Emergency Department is also implementing new care processes that include screening patients for issues such as depression, in-home safety, elder abuse and delirium.
The Senior Emergency Department was made possible through the support of the Attman and Powers families, the Raskob Foundation for Catholic Activities, and a partnership with the Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC.
We look forward to providing a new level of care to this important population in our region.
