Senior ER

Senior-Friendly Emergency Department

Hilton Head Hospital is the only hospital in Beaufort County with enhanced senior emergency care.

Hilton Head Hospital, a division of Hilton Head Regional Healthcare, has enhanced its geriatric emergency care to meet the specific healthcare needs of our communities aging population. Our Senior Emergency Department was created to reduce anxiety, and promote healing while providing our extraordinary care, right here at home.

The Senior-Friendly Emergency Department at Hilton Head Hospital offers patients an age-friendly environment for our elderly patients.

Age may be just a number, but our new senior emergency additions are not just your typical hospital rooms. Our team of physicians, nurses, dieticians, case managers and pharmacists will focus on the safety and management of each geriatric condition.

We have proudly joined forces with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders), a national program geared toward improving care for older hospitalized adults. Though this program, our nurses are receiving specialized training to help them better care for the elderly.

Each Senior-Friendly emergency room will include:

  • 24/7 coverage of board-certified emergency trained physicians
  • Specialized nurses with geriatric emergency certification
  • Specially designed patient rooms with softer lighting and visual aids
  • Body-warming devices/warm blankets
  • Non-slip equipment and floors for patient safety
  • Thicker, more comfortable mattresses
