The Medicine Program focuses on excellence in senior and elder friendly care.
Associated with the inpatient medicine program is the Inpatient Specialized Geriatric Medicine Consultation Service, provided by experts in geriatric medicine.
This service conducts a comprehensive assessment and provides recommendations for older patients at St. Mary’s who have complex medical and functional issues. The team is composed of a Geriatrician and an Advanced Practice Nurse, and is supported by Registered Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Social Workers. Referrals are welcomed from all inpatient teams at St. Mary’s.
If a patient or family member at the hospital would like to receive a consultation from this service, discuss the possibility with the attending physician, who can send in a referral.
