At the General, we love our seniors and our goal is to provide the best medical care and facilities to meet their unique needs and give families and caregivers peace of mind.
Seniors Wellness Center
As the baby boomer population in our community continues to age, Baton Rouge General has embraced the pressing need to synergize emergency and geriatric medicine. Our Seniors ER at Mid City - the first of its kind in the area - is a culmination of many people working together to provide specialized care to our older patients. We have worked passionately to enhance our medical care and designed physical spaces to create a more relaxed, comfortable environment for seniors, families and caregivers featuring amenities such as:
Separate, quiet waiting area away from the main emergency waiting area
Private quiet treatment areas located on a less traveled hallway close to the nurses' station
Hand rails that line walls
Color-coded directions for ease of navigation
Heated blanket on every bed
Softer room lighting, muted colors and assistive tools for easier reading of any medical paperwork
The Seniors ER is staffed with a highly skilled team of medical professionals specializing in geriatric care and trained in administering screenings and assessments to identify patients who may need additional assistance or resources outside of the hospital.
