Key services on offer at the Geriatrics Center, Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital
1. Health assessments and provision of a comprehensive range of treatments
Studies of geriatric medicine have found that the elderly are at risk of developing several specific types of illnesses due to age-related physiologic changes. This means there is a greater chance of “overlooking” an illness if no systematic screening process is carried out. A thorough health assessment will help evaluate every aspect that could potentially affect the health of an elderly patient, including more accurately identifying diseases and illnesses that are commonly found among the elderly population. The information gleaned from such assessments can also be put to use in the planning of effective treatment programs for each individual patient.
Our screening and assessment program consists of the following:
2. Consultations and health support
3. Coordination of medical teams across all locations
Older adult patients who suffer from health issues and complicated medical conditions are particularly at risk of succumbing to mistakes made by medical teams, for instance when being transferred to another place, such as from a home setting to a hospital, from a hospital to another hospital, or from a hospital back to their home.
The Geriatrics Center carefully coordinates its efforts between each and every relevant department, in order to ensure the safety of our elderly patients. Whenever a patient enters Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital, our team will track their care within the first 24 hours after their arrival at the hospital. The team will also coordinate with the patient’s regular doctor who is responsible for their care, as well as staff in various other relevant departments for the duration of the patient’s stay in hospital. This will prevent that vital information is lost and ensure the smoothest experience possible for the patient.
