In Hospital (In-patient)

Patients who are already in hospital may be transferred to an in-patient Geriatric Assessment Unit for assessment and treatment.   To be transferred to the unit from an in-patient unit the patient is seen in consultation by one of the Geriatric Nurse Specialists and /or Geriatric Physicians.  Patients are occasionally transferred directly to the unit from community consultation with the Family Physician and the Geriatric Physician. Patients may also be referred to a Geriatric Rehabilitation Unit.
